Lasham Airfield is a complex operation and so needs to ensure that its many users have the knowledge to use it safely and efficiently. The Lasham Airfield Manual is one of the ways that this information is communicated.
The manual was introduced on 1 January 2007. All full flying members have to confirm that they have read the pilot sections to renew their membership. However all material changes to the pilot sections after 1 December 2006 will be communicated to members via the Lasham Magazine. A limited number of printed copies are available on loan from the Lasham Office for reading in the club-house. The Tug Manual and its annex are also available separately.
The other sections are not mandatory reading for all members. Nevertheless many members will find these other sections important when gliding from Lasham and when using its facilities. Some additional non-mandatory sections are still being written.
Members can download whole sections from the Lasham web-site and these may be issued, for example to competitors/visitors from other clubs, but the material must not be extracted and used elsewhere without permission. The content of the manual must not be modified without clearance from the CFI.
