Re: Flyer Live 2016

Kindest...

Flyer Live 2016

Just a quick note to say that The Light Aircraft Company Ltd will not be exhibiting at the Flyer Live show this year. To those who love the rumor mill, there is no hidden agenda, no we are not going out of business, in fact we don't have enough hours in the day, we have UK and export orders and we h...

Re: Grey Aviation

That's a pretty stock reply Richard, what I would class a a throw away comment. You know I think the LAA and all the people there work very hard to make a success of things, especially the Rally, however it isnt bringing the youth into the industry/sport. Quite happy to get involved, but we need to ...

Re: Grey Aviation

Well I am sure my post will create a rustling of feathers Grey aviation is spot on, I have a great deal of time for the LAA and what it stands for however we have a serious issue, we are not encouraging new blood into the industry and we are missing every trick in the book to do so. The LAA Rally is...

Re: Jabiru engined a/c Limitations

Ian, if you are going to pull the pin out of the grenade and launch it into the community make sure you have got both sides of the story. Forums are great but ambulance chasing and gossip mongering are counter productive. These acts normally involve people to waste a load of time they don't have, ge...

Re: Jabiru engined a/c Limitations

Rod1, who I think really works as disaster, scandle and gossip advisor to News of the World, has I am afraid caused a whole load of unnecessary grief to Jab aircraft and engine owners without doing the necessary background work.
