Visit to HM Helicopter Base

EVENT: Visit to HM Helicopter Base and Hovercraft Museum

Date: 18th April 2020
Time: Depart Woodley at 8.45 am (11:00 at Lee-on-the Solent)

VENUE: HM Coastguard Helicopter Base, Solent Airport,

I know you all want to get out on the water but some of the boats may not be ready, we have arranged for a day trip on the 18th of April to HM Coastguard Helicopter base at Lee-on Solent.

We will leave Woodley at 8 45am in a 16 seater minibus.  If you would like to come along we have been offered a chance to tour round the Helicopter headquarters and see the operation room and the Helicopters.

We will have to be there for 11.00 for an hour visit as this is not normal open to the public. After this we intend to go to the only Hovercraft Museum in the World which is just around on the sea front where we can ride in a working Hovercraft which, we have been told, demonstrates how it can perform!

Depending on numbers for this trip I think the bus will cost 10 each.  The entrance to the Museum was 6 each last year and 20 to ride in the Hovercraft.

We should have time to stop for a break and refreshments before we get to each venue.

Please can you let me know a.s.a.p. so we can book a mini-bus if needed and the museum.
