Download the app onto your phone and then join these four groups. Please remember to read the pinned rules - essentially you must use your own full name on the groups. Make sure to familiarise yourself with the location functions on Telegram. Being able to drop a pin at launch or landing is very useful for co-ordinating groups of pilots and retrieves. Scottish Telegram Groups - the links for these groups change regularly. Ask a fellow pilot to add you.
