Alouette news

Airport fees increased from 1st April 2018

No its not an April fool joke, both landing and touch and go fees have been increased from today and are now £29 and £17 respectively but note these are discounted from the normal fees as we are based at Biggin Hill.

2018 Membership Renewal

Yes its that time of year again when your committee has to review and publish the membership fees for the coming year.

The good news is that this year's fees are being held at the same level! If you haven't paid already, I'm afraid you have now missed the early bird discount of £10 for Full Flying membership.

You can now use PayPal, via the link below, or make the payment via BACS as many of you now do for your flying accounts.

Social membership has also been held at £30 per year and can also be renewed via Paypal on this website or by BACS.

Next Club Evening - Wednesday the 2nd of May

Do come along and why not bring a friend, or two?

Alouette Merchandise direct from the supplier!

At Alouette we have always held our own stock of sweatshirts, polo shirts, hats etc. but this leads to holding quite a lot of stock as not only do we have to keep a reasonable range, we also have to stock a variety of sizes. This also ties up valuable funds and, for a club such as ours, this is less than ideal.

Now all that is changing as we have setup a method whereby you can buy direct from the supplier and this allows us to offer a much greater range and removes the need to hold any stock at the club. All items will have the Alouette logo embroidered on them and will be sent to your home address.

Alouette will still make a small profit on each sale so everybody wins!

Take a look at the new range here: Alouette Merchandise

Why not give it a try now?

Alouette Seasonal Dinner

The Alouette seasonal (Christmas) dinner was at the Old Jail in Biggin Hill and I'm pleased to report it was one of the best, if not the best.

It was a good turnout and we filled the room we had pre-booked for the occasion.

The pub did us proud with plenty of good fare from the standard menu (no turkey present...) and some good ale to wash it down with.

A chance to catch up with friends old and new, if you missed it then its a shame as we won't be doing another for, well, another year!


Member's photos

One of our members, Pete Thomson, sent over a few pictures from a recent outing in Juliet Oscar, our PA28 and we particularly like this one as it has a certain feel about it evoking the feeling of satisfaction at the end of a good day's flying.


You may not be aware of it but the club does have a Facebook page so for those of you who use this medium, please take a look at

This page is regularly updated and shows similar information to that found on our website.

What's at the end of the Yellow Line

Recently our Warrior had a scrape around the back of the maintenance hangar. Read flying instructor Bruno's interesting and informative report - and the conclusions he draws from the incident.
