SHHAS visit to

RAF Mildenhall

Tuesday 12th September 2017

Our next trip will be by coach to RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk. We must get between 25 and 40 people going, including the coach driver. A coach is compulsory, as we will be driven around the base.

Depending on numbers, the coach will work out to between £19 and £30 each, obviously the more who come the cheaper it is per head.

All visitors MUST bring a government issued valid ID, either Passport or Driving License and they must not be expired.

Fighter Pilot: The Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds

Review by Roger Hixon


I have just read the book, Fighter Pilot. It's the story of American pilot Robin Olds. A very enjoyable story of a very interesting man, who was involved in many aspects of aviation, from front line fighter/bomber pilot, to working in the Pentagon. He fought in WW2 and Vietnam, with distinction.

Anyone wanting to read this book, please contact me to borrow it.

Brits took more flights than ever before in 2016 and with air travel increasing there is now a worldwide shortage of pilots and easyJet has launched its largest-ever recruitment drive, including a focus on encouraging more women to apply. This documentary following new recruits for airline easyJet as they train to become fully qualified pilots, going inside the cockpit and tracking the candidates from the classroom to the simulator, and eventually to their first flight with hundreds of paying passengers
