Megeve 2016

Thanks once again to all the customers and staff who made our visit to Megeve another successful trip.  The enthusiasm and generosity of our customers and owners was very much appreciated by all the team.

It wasn’t quite like previous years, 3 days to get there, Duncan & John ill for a day each and not much mountain flying before coming home early. Sadly we can’t Greg Le Touquethave wonderful weather every year.  Such are the joys of flying in the mountains but it was a great learning experience, with all of us getting some real decision making practice. We also got to see some more of France: Troyes, Troyes again, a field somewhere near Santenay and Chalon!

I must say particular thanks to Ian and Ali who more or less carried the trip down and were an enormous support to me whilst my thoughts were elsewhere. Delighted to say that my father is making good progress, thanks for all the kind concern shown.

MegeveI must also say thanks to our old friends at Aeroclub de Megeve, sorry we didn’t spend as long with you as we had hoped. Also thanks to our new friends at Mont Blanc Helicopters for the Jet A1! Not forgetting the fixer Tim without whom I would be stuck.

I know the trip back was hard going but with the weather behaving as it did, I think we made the correct decision to cross the channel – best weather of the trip, thanks to Greg for the photos.  It was also nice to see Alex and Rob stepping up to the challenge of getting us home.  Finally thanks to Candy for her help in organising things and sending out the invoices!

GregI very much look forward to doing it all again with you sometime – just not for few weeks until I have got a bit of resting done.
