Re: Big pilots

Derek Not the best option but maybe your profile published would get responses yes and no to various aircraft being flown in LAA Land. I've just sold an older single seat and ensured that the advert conveyed that anyone over 6 foot wouldn't have a chance of fitting. 5' 9" and maximum of 200 pounds w...

Re: Big pilots

Derek Hi. Finding an aircraft to fit is quite the hardest part of selection along with another.....access IN and OUT. Old aircraft were often designed when the population was generally 25% or more smaller than it is today. Cabin width is always a good measure of suitability. Anything 25" or below is...

Re: Engraving machines

Trevor Hi. I needed 6 separate labels for a upgraded panel and chose self adhesive Traffolyte White on Black Labels 25mm X 15mm but can be smaller. With VAT and Delivery was £13.00. Take a look at this Company. They were extremely obliging even though a small order. https://www.traffolytelabels.co.u...

Re: Ignoring PPR

Mike Hi. That is really odd requirement of PPR? Maybe they have limited movements to adhere to. PPR works generally very well here. Its needed as the wheat each side of strip will be cut in next day or two. Next month ITV Drama may appear for 2 or 3 days and the Strip will be totally closed to all f...

Re: Ignoring PPR

I'm pleased to say that the Tiger Moth that landed at my Strip Sunday Morning called today to explain the situation and all is well. Weather at that time over the Mendips was not so good so he wisely put down to see how things would go. If anyone wants to visit then please call for PPR and you will ...

Ignoring PPR

Just an observation.... Its not unknown for Aircraft to land at my Airstrip, White Ox Mead without PPR. In the majority of cases I get a text, email or call to say who it was and to apologise for no PPR. PPR is needed as its a Farm and each day could present different circumstances. Add to that that...

Re: Missing aircraft

Rob
No Mode S or ADS-B information on FR24 for past year?
Might be worth contacting Pilot Aware as they do keep some logs of Aircraft movements via their various ground stations.....I think?
I'll email them now.
