General Airfield News....
SkyPirates of Penzance (SkyPoP) is a group for civilian aviation enthusiasts of Caledon as well as fellow flyers in all Victorian Steampunk nations. Our base of operations is The Connolly Airfield/Aerodrome in Caledon Penzance. SkyPirates of Penzance (SkyPoP) is not necessarily a pirates group, but is most definitely a group for flying, socializing, and fun!
Caledon Morgaine has arrived and is now under construction. Please be mindful of - and courteous to - the terraforming crew as they go about the business of developing our next Caledon Region. Do try to avoid flying into them, landing on top of them, or otherwise distracting them too much. And heavens! No Bombing practice or dogfights whilst crews are working!
With the impending opening of Morgaine by Guvnah Desmond Shang, our own Professor Phineas Messmer (RCAF Air Chief Marshal and Aethernautical Society Projects Director) will begin building his launchpad and Lab for Cape Messmer, which will become part of the Connolly-Tombola Aerodrome Complex, and be our first step-stone into Aether-Space.
Please be courteous and keep the runway clear of debris during and after use. If you encounter any unresolvable issues, do contact me by Aether-Messenger Device.
Ranks used by The Royal Caledon Air Force are loosely based upon the UK RAF rank system as outlined in the following link to NATO Air Forces on Wikipedia
