CINQUE PORT CLUB’S REPORT
AVERY satisfactory state of affairs is revealed in the report of the Cinque Ports Club for the half year ending 30th September last. For the six months ending 30th September, 1930, the three club aircraft between them flew no less than 868 hours 25 minutes. Mr. K. K. Brown as instructor flew 470 hours in the six months, and ” A ” licence pilots and soloists under instruction, flew just under 400 hours between them. Assuming a cruising speed of 75 miles
per hour for the Cirrus Mark II Moths, this homage represents a distance of 65,000 miles flown by the three aircraft during the period. Receipts from the sale of flying tickets to members amounted to over £1,350.
Mr. Brown trained as many as twenty-four new pilots in the six months—an average output of one a week. This represents the maximum efficiency yet attained by this club, and shows results probably unsurpassed by any other club M the country.
