Covid-19

We're undoubtedly living through unprecedented times and naturally everyone in the Squadron would like to extend their thoughts and best wishes to all of those adversely affected by the Corona virus pandemic.

Unsurprisingly the airshow season has been decimated and our programme has been similarly adversely affected, nonetheless work continues as organisers struggle to identify alternative dates and venues.

Prior to the implementation of the travel restrictions and lock-down we were in full flow and on course for some newsworthy announcements, but alas these too are now held in abeyance.

Sadly we are unable to fly the Easter Bunny in to Naomi House this year and a long-distance fundraising run by four of our pilots which was scheduled for early April has also had to be postponed.

Despite the difficulties the Squadron and it's aircraft remain in a good position, so once life begins to return to normality we will be capable of supporting the UK's airshows fully and hope to bring the Gazelles to an event near you in 2020.
