PILOT CLUB IN APRIL 2020

Due to the health crisis, with social distancing being advised to reduce the spread of infection, Pilot Club will not be holding any events in April, and probably not for quite some time.

When it again becomes possible to socialise without health risk to our members, we will resume our programme of events.

Meanwhile, our members are keeping in touch with each other by phone and email.

We wish all the best to anyone who is looking at our website, and we hope you will contact us when the health crisis is over.
