Re: Fuel Prices and availability

Hi Paul,

Will have to fly up in the week soon, need to buy some of that excellent glass cleaner you sell as I'm nearly out. Be good to catch up, it's been ages!

What's the score on N reg helicopters? I know there are lots of N reg fixed wing, and even N reg experimental aircraft flying in the UK (Red Ball planes) so what's stopping you buying an N reg experimental helicopter ? I assume you would have to fly it on an FAA licence?

Just thinking out loud

Can't remember how much, it was not cheap, but I think once you add up all the "wet stuff" on traditional covering I bet there is not a lot in it. All you need with oratex is the covering, tapes, glue and an iron

Talk to Paul at the light aircraft company TLAC and he will give you a price

I do believe that you have to show the CAA insurance before you fly, and there is a set amount of time that you have to do it before the date of the first flight.

There called a Master Blaster

There a 240 volt Klaxon (with 12v relay built in for triggering)

Any alarm company will be able to supply you one, there about £120

I only went Saturday, But everything went well, Although the pattern was not followed perfectly, everyone was sensible and no one was cut up (whilst I was approaching anyway) and calls were short and sharp and ATC was perfect

Superb day!

Thanks to all those involved

scary thing is i have already started puting pen to paper on a SSDR turbine powered plane!! it can be done as the engines way only a few pounds each (will need at least 2) and there is no vibration/torque so no heavy mountings (exept for the tank! their THIRSTY!!)
