Ascension 21 May - 3 Jun 2017

Postby roger dickey » Mon Mar 13, 2017 8:58 pm

The dates for AOS to visit Ascension Island are currently 21 May - 3 Jun 17. These are as yet provisional as the birds have yet to show any signs of settling.

Admin arrangements will become clearer in 2 weeks time when bids will be required. Currently the cost of a return air fare is £980 for non serving and £260 for serving. Depending on the nature of this expedition, fare and accommodation costs may be helped with a grant. Details later when know.

Interest through these pages please.

Umm, slightly more than in jeopardy - it's cancelled. I have just received a very helpful e-mail from Martin Routledge with the whys and wherefores from the MOD perspective and the message is not good with the possibility of a double whammy due to the US wishing a total refurbishment in a year's time.
Don't hold your breath.

Do we have an inclination yet whether the next trip will run next year?

I'm reasonably keen but as I'm serving I'll need to start my influence campaign with both 0As early.
