Forthcoming and Recent Events

The club hosts a number of events throughout the year. They’re neither formal nor stuffy – the object is simply to catch up with like minded friends and have a reason to fly somewhere. Use the map below to see what events we have planned and those we’re planning attend with our partner clubs.

Full entries for VPAC events are beneath the map, as is a record of some of our previous year’s events. Any further photos gratefully received!
