    Ryan,

    Check out www.cixvfrclub.org.uk. I just joined recently and being in the UK they should be right up your alley. A recent Builder of the Month here Steve is very involved.

    Cheers, Dave

    Download VATSPY and you can see where there is ATC coverage and what flights are flying.

    Thanks Guys.

    Vatspy is a great tool - I didn't know about it.

    CIX VFR Club looks like great.

    Hi Ryan,

    Monday nights - EGKA Shoreham very active
    Tuesday nights - EGBJ Gloucester quite active
    Friday nights - EGKB Biggin Hill quite active

    otherwise, Carfiff / Bristol / Birmingam are very GA friendly.

    Hope that helps,

    Regards
    Steve.
