WELCOME TO MACAIR!

 

ALL PILOTS MUST READ!


GDPR REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS

Due to the new GDPR Regulations, (General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), now in force, we will not be sending this message out via Bulk Mail. As we cannot be sure that we have your or any members permission to send out what is now regarded as unsolicited mail.


What does this mean?

It basically means that if you do not read this message, and follow the explicit instructions below, we will eventually have no choice but to remove you from the MacAir members list by July 21st at the latest. If you are not reading this, then it will effectively remove your involvement with MacAir when we begin to fully enforce the new regulation at that time.

We are unfortunately 'forced' to do this to comply with the new regulations. If we don't, we could face fines at best, and a complete closure of MacAir at worst. I will not allow that to happen as I'm sure you understand.

We assume that we will lose a good many members, but our hopes are that this move encourages our core members and new members to be involved, interested, and active on the MacAir Forum. It also means, that 'if you are not reading this' you will be surprised that your account will have been made dormant, and will only be reactivated if you have the energy to seek out reinstatement. And even then, you will be required to come to the Forum and read this message, before reinstatement is considered.

If you do wish reinstatement, it will require that you give your permission for us to hold your E-Mail address, your basic name and age details, (for safety sake in only having adults within the group). And that anyone not giving this permission, will not be able to successfully apply and fly for MacAir.

More information will be forthcoming - until then, can we ask that those of you who read this, place your name below, to say that you have read it, that you are happy for your details to be held, for the present and the future. And that you are content that we have your 'present' up-to-date E-Mail address currently in your profile, (send via PM if it is not the one that we presently hold), for use under the new GDPR Regulations.

If you do not read this message? It will come as a surprise when you are eventually removed from the MacAir Roster and Forums, and then you seek reactivation - for that will require that you have to reregister and start from scratch AND that you use the Forum to again agree to this regulation. As the forums are where everything MacAir has to offer will exist beginning July 15th. The Main Site will not be a function of information giving or sharing.

You will still not be 'required' to converse in the forums, but as always we sincerely hope that you do. It is the 'life' of MacAir and there are lots of great folks on there.

We have nothing but the hope that you will continue to support MacAir, in whichever way suits your future requirements. It will be your choice and we of course hope sincerely that everyone will see this and choose to continue their membership with us.

I had hoped that these new regulations wouldn't affect MacAir but unfortunately they do.

DOTM ANNOUNCEMENT

 

AUGUST DESTINATION OF THE MONTH: TENZIG-HILLARY AIRPORT

Howdy pilots, this month you'll be flying to one of the highest altitude airports in the world, as part of a normal cargo operation.
That's right, you'll be flying into Lukla, Nepal, and serving as one of the few links available to the outside world, next to the new road announced in 2014. This airport, built in 1964 under supervision of Edmund Hillary, is located on the side of a mountain at the base of Mount Everest. Due to it's extreme geography, it is known as the most dangerous airport in the world.
In 1964, Sir Edmund Hillary purchased the land for the airport from the local Sherpas, to aid in the construction of schools by the Himalayan Trust (also started by Hillary). Originally, the airport was to be located on flatter farmlands, however no suitable farmland was for sale. After the runway was first used, Hillary is said to have bartered with the local Sherpas to have them perform a foot-stomping dance, to help improve the soil resistance.
Due to the location of the single runway, with one end up against a cliff face and a large retaining wall, only a select few STOL-capable aircraft (such as the DHC-6, Do228 and PC-6) are allowed to operate at the airport.
 
In 2001 the runway was paved, and in 2008 the airport was re-named in honor of Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, a Nepalese Sherpa mountaineer, who were the first two men to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
