Re: BRITISH EASA LAPL POST BREXIT

I think this is a question which very many of us holding a LAPL would like to see answered. I have reason to believe that the CAA have it on their list of things to do. However, I doubt it is anywhere near the top of the list so patience may be needed.

Have you tried the successor to Airworld UK here.

Looks like interesting expansion happening.

Channel Danger Areas

The October edition of "Light Aviation" dropped through the letter box this morning and, as usual, all those chores which I had the good intention to complete were shelved whilst I read our excellent magazine. One item which caught my eye was the news item about the Channel Danger areas. The map on ...

Re: New Project

Hi Lee,

As a start I would suggest reading the TIL here on imported aeroplanes. Is the aeroplane you are looking at one for which the LAA has already accepted the type?

No doubt someone will be along shortly who can answer your other questions.

Re: Learning - Fabric - Help!?

Stephen, Ceconite practice kits are available. We have just used one for repairs to a wing and I would think that there is probably enough in one to do a rudder recover. I can't remember where the kit came from but could find out at the weekend unless someone else pops up here with the answer. My pr...

Re: C90 / O-200 operating costs

I believe some Inspectors have authority to oversee bottom end overhauls.

Re: For the attention of Steve Slater

I can't answer your question but would ask you if the Welsh Administration have any authority over the operation of aircraft anywhere in the UK. Is that not the sole responsibility of the CAA?

Re: Insurance costs

If you can dig out your April copy of Light Aviation, Chrystelle Launai on page 31 explains some of the problems faced by aircraft insurers at present. I have owned the same aircraft for over 20 years with little or no change in the scope of cover and have kept a careful note of the premiums that I ...

They’re probably LAA’s most effective sales ambassador.... :lol:
Indeed they are.

Personally, I find it difficult to comprehend that a UK licenced pilot can be prevented from flying a UK registered aeroplane within UK airspace.

And yes, I know all the legal and political arguments.

Re: Heads up, Article on Feb 20 mag on ANR headsets

Having found my hearing deteriorating (possibly due to a noisy Continental engine!) I found this article very interesting in its technical explanation of headsets and their attenuation. However, one thing which did not seem to be mentioned was that of how comfortable a particular headset is to wear ...

Re: Share the Air, Sense all others, be seen by all others.

With so many different EC systems perhaps keeping your eyes scanning the sky and not looking at a screen is the best way to go.
