Newcastle 2018 update

A bit of an update on the 2018 Festival of Flight

Rick Peacock-Edwards has been re-appointed Flight Director for 2018. This will be his 4th Festival of Flight, having taken over from Jeff Salter in 2015.

There is still no decision on the format for 2018, while there is doubt about a 2 day show due to a budget cut, 2 days is still a possibility as officials would still like to see a 2 day show. It does seem more likely to be 1 day though it would seem.

Officials will now work with the Flight Director and his team of 4 command and control personnel to see what programme can be delivered within the budget.

Work on a paper on how to partner and develop links with Bray is being drawn up and will be released in the coming weeks.

The budget has been reduced from £140000 to £122,000. This is just from the councils budget and does not factor in outside sponsorship.
