Email address flyingbuddies@greendragons.co.uk is used to distribute to all those subscribed.

We have found that Flying Buddies has helped many of our students and pilots network and meet like minded pilots. They are meeting and flying together at our sites and car sharing to various locations, including the South Downs and Wales.

At all times, we do advise that you remain aware of you own personal training and skill level, whilst taking the advise of those who are either your Instructor or LOCAL club coaches, especially if the flying site is unknown to you, as they will be more qualified to ensure that your flights are safe and fun.

whilst we encourage all our students, members and customers to use the Flying Buddies system, we insist that it is NOT used for chit chat or other discussions. Given the nature of the system all members receive an email with each posting and we do not want to be the cause of members being bombarded with non specific trivia.

If the system is abused those members causing the problem will be contacted.

- Communications:

We encourage everyone to join our forum.

Whether you need help, advice or just a browse to learn more about us and the sport, you can read it from those who know, or those who want to.

We find this a great medium for communication within our team and members.

Green Dragons, the Club, was established in the early 70s.

Club members enjoy this social aspect of Green Dragons and we encourage all students and especially non-flyers.

We try to arrange many events throughout the year, whether a family camping weekend or BBQ and holidays, all for our members.
