2013 - We bid a fond farewell to G-BAPX DR400/160 and Welcome our new Group Aircraft G-BSDH DR400/180!

2012 - To celebrate a Decade of TFG Flying we've been Aerobatic in the EA200 & Flown a 737-800 ......(Simulator) - see Gallery!


August 2013 saw us bid a fond farewell to G-BAPX and welcome our new Group Aircraft to Hangar 3 at Sywell, a lovely Robin DR400/180 Regent G-BSDH.

APRIL 2013

April 2013 saw us re-form with the G-BAPX Group. The lure of the well documented 'bent wing' Robin handling characteristics, benefits of type and based at Sywell again was enough to temp us back as 1/4 share owners.

MAY 2010

Having sold our 1/5 share in G-BAPX, 2010 saw us join a new fixed wing flying syndicate. The lure of something a little more complex saw us slipping the surly bonds in a Piper Arrow III G-TSGA from Peterborough Conington for recreational pleasure flying and the odd business meeting.
