Alouette Seasonal Dinner

Yes its that time of year again when we all start thinking about Christmas and all that goes with it.

At Alouette we are also busy making plans and one of those is for our 'Seasonal' (note clever avoidance of the word Christmas) dinner which will be on Saturday January the 6th at The Old Jail in Jail lane Biggin Hill.

Starting at 7pm you can come along for a drink and a chat or have a full blown meal chosen from their extensive menu. We decided against the usual fixed menu where you have to think about what you want to eat in 6 weeks time!

Take a look at the menu here The Old Jail menu

We have a room for up to 30 people booked and hope many of you will come along.

Please make your booking directly with the pub on 01959 572979 and mention that you wish to join the Alouette party on the 6th.

Also if you could let our chairman know you are coming and how many there are in the party it would help our with overall planning, we don't want you to be left out in the cold!

Next Club Evening - Wednesday the 6th of December

Come along and support your club for our pre-Christmas social night.

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.
