Flight tracking will be provided by Global Telesat Communications (GTC) of Poole, UK. GTC supplies a range of portable satellite voice, data and tracking solutions which provide communications services in areas of the world where regular methods of communication do not exist or are limited. These solutions include handheld satellite phones, personal and asset tracking devices and portable high speed broadband terminals, all of which work almost anywhere on the globe. GTC have provided a DeLorme inReach for flyRTW80, a handheld award-winning satellite communicator that uses the Iridium global satellite network to enable 2-way personal and SOS communications and remote Follow-me/Find-me tracking and location, anywhere in the world. This satellite tracker will transmit the location of C-FYHU every 10 minutes as it travels around the world, and these position reports will be available for all to see through GTC’s online mapping portal, which will be embedded into the flyRTW80 website. Full information on the inReach tracker can be found on their website.
A big THANK YOU to all who participated.
Despite the disappointing weather cards we were dealt, WE RAISED OVER £3,000 FOR SCAA. This is more than enough to save the life of someone in the near future. That someone could well be a friend, family member, customer or supplier of one of you who so selflessly helped to organise the event and deliver a fun day despite the contrary behaviour of the weatherman.
The music, the auctions and the tombola were all great, the mood was positive and all of us who were on hand had a great time despite the fact that scarcely an aircraft engine was heard.
Our thanks go out to all who contributed including many of the people from:
