Death of Tony Calvey

It is with great sadness that the Stampe Club announces the death of Tony Calvey who died, after a long illness at the end of August 2014.

Tony, a well-known Stampeist and a member of the 'Headcorn Headcases', flew Stampe G-OODE with great panache.  Indeed, the removal of this aircraft from a nearby field to Headcorn (following an engine failure) by helicopter has already gone down in the annals of flying history.

The Stampe Club offers its deepest sympathy to Tony's family and many friends.

Once a new registration has been completed an email is forwarded to Angus  for him to validate.

All pretty logical and Peter will help members publish material if required. Although, as has been said before, members are encouraged to publish material themselves in the 'self-drive' sections e.g. 'Members' photos' , 'Bazaar' and 'Ops Board'.

Guy Solleveld, our technical expert and procurer of very important components to keep our aircraft flying can be reached viia his email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In case members feel the website is focussing on activities in southwestern France, this is because Peter is based in those parts and it is easier for him to obtain material from there. So please forward any  reports of activities from your area to spread the joy, as they say in the Caribbean.

Notwithstanding the  above we are trying to include French 'Stampistes' as much as possible, for reasons that should be obvious: they have better food and large supplies of wine. We hope interacton will bring invitations for joint activities.

 

We have introduced a technical publications LIBRARY to contain as many  documents as can be obtained and digitised for the benefit of members.  The original Stampe documentation: flight manual, airframe manual, engine manual(s), various operating notes and list of maintenance directives; is all extant but, a) ownership and copyright (if any) need to cleared; b) the digitising process , long and tedious, has to be  undertaken.

Access to the library will be for members via their registration credentials. If you are a member and have not registered (via the login) please do so in order to be able to  in the future access this useful resource.

 Please have a go and enter something into these forms.  Perhaps some of you are not aware that these  forms can be added to online directly. No need to ask someone to do it. Just enter your spare part (wanted of offered) and the form should automatically save this and make the information available to others.
Content Editors

We are looking for content editors to add content to the basic headings that we have created: events, engines, history.

 

one of the beauties of this content management system, CMS, that we are using on this website is that registered editors can add, edit and delete content directly by clicking the pencil icon found to the  left of an article. This makes life very easy for the webmaster because editors can work away whenever they wish without involving him at all. If you want to become a content editor (and there can be more than one per section) contact Angus.
