Last month’s guest speaker, Geoff Dickie, was very informative and gave members an insight into air traffic controlling. How in the skies distance is measured in imperial, and once on the ground, in metric.

For example, an aircraft will have 5 miles separation between the one in front. Reduced Vertical Separation Minima [RVSM] depends on where you are in the world, here in the Pacific it is usually 1,000 feet.

During the week I attended the opening function of the Ken Done exhibition at the Tweed Gallery. His splash of colour from the eighties was always a favourite.
