Yep, the search is rubbish. But some will say the website is so easy to search...

Re: web site!!!!

I can't say I like it, when I want information I don't want an art gallery. Acres of space used when just a list will do.
Quite agree about Lucy spending time on the website, unless it was done unpaid in private time.

Re: Radio problems

So you tune in to those 'channels' and hear nothing?
How do you know "all others are fine"? Did someone transmit to you by going through every frequency with you.

Re: Use of Stainless Steel AN bolts in place of CAD plated AN bolts

A4-80 bolts are only approximately as strong as commercial 8.8 grade. AN bolts will obviously be stronger.

Have a look at G-INFO and see if any have a 912.
I believe a ULPower engine fits the Jab engine mounts, though it will be wider and heavier.

Re: Permit renewal, two day turnaround

7 days with the new efficient system....
This was just last week. I left one number off the flight review form which probably added one day. This was quickly communicated in each direction and was taken care of with no drama.

Re: Dynavibe GX3 for use by LAA members.

The Smart Avionics PB-4 is much cheaper and more than good enough for LAA aircraft. But where would it stop, there is much specialised equipment that would be great to have access to, and then the LAA would have to employ someone to manage the coming and going of the equipment, and then there would ...
