Coronavirus (Covid-19) announcement
Dear Aero Club members,
In response to the rapidly developing situation in the UK surrounding COVID-19, we regret to inform you that Cambridge Aero Club will be closing with immediate effect in order to safeguard members and staff. We are currently planning to reopen in early May but will review this in due course and keep you updated.
We understand this will be a disappointment for those of you who were hoping to fly in the upcoming weeks. However, it is our duty not to expose our members and staff to undue risk. The government currently advises that all forms of social contact should be avoided to contain the spread of COVID-19, and unfortunately social contact is an unavoidable consequence of what we do.
All Aero Club flights, both dual and solo, until 1 May have therefore been cancelled, and the Aero Club premises will be closed to visitors.
Those members with their own aircraft can gain access via the FBO ‘Jet Centre’ as the Cambridge Airport itself has not yet announced any closures.
Furthermore, the GASCo Safety Evening on 21 April has been postponed, as have the upcoming GroundSchoolclasses and the SkyBirdssocial evening.
We are working on expanding the amount of resources we can offer you so that you can keep learning without coming in.
The reception desk will be staffed periodically, unless and until this is precluded by government guidelines. The email inbox will be monitored constantly as staff are working from home and we would request that this be the preferred method of contact for any enquiries you may have.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to flying again.
Cambridge Aero Club
