Flying on Non Rostered Club Days

Flying by Club members on mid-week days, that are not regular scheduled flying days, is permitted provided the following conditions are in place.  These days are usually arranged to take advantage of cross country soaring conditions and it is anticipated that pilots will be flying away from the local area on planned tasks.  It is therefore important that a nominated person is responsible for all flying operations and is aware of who is flying and what their task intentions are.
