Glen provided an account of the recent incident at Ben Nevis, Gabriel an account of an incident at Mystic. The other incidents that have occured recently were also discussed. On the back of the event at Ben Nevis Kieran commented about the response of the emergency services and felt that the use of an emergency beacon which he has was excellent, and is to send round an email to arrange a bulk purchase if people are interested at the upcoming Avalon Airshow.
VHPA Update: Fairly low ket meeting was held the day before which Johannes attended. Nothing major to report other than a comment that the Portsea upgrade hasn’t been that beneficial to HG pilots but this was from one pilot only.
