Cross Channel Fly-Out

 

Kent Strut organised a Cross Channel Event in June 2016 for LAA members who had not been across the Channel before so that all the paperwork was done by us leaving them to concentrate on the flying.

 

Unfortunately, the weather on the chosen weekend proved to be totally unsuitable and the event had to be cancelled on both days. Various documents were prepared to enable the entrants to make the trip themselves in the future and these are available below. Please note that any information was correct only in June 2016. (Abbeville is no longer a customs airfield).
