Greenland Air Trophy, trans atlantic for almost any aircraft

Just to let everyone know that the final plan is now available for our trans-atlantic this summer - with a maximum leg length of 246nm it should be possible for nearly all aircraft. If anyone would like a copy of the Pilot Advisory, please just ping me an email: sam@prepare2go dot com Safe flights! ...

Re: Hangarage Immediately Available on a Grass Strip

I have to agree that without an approximate location this particular post is particularly useless!

I'd suggest it is the MOST important item of all...

Re: Flying in France - proof of VAT needed?

I've never had it, but apparently the French (they seem to be more active on this than any other country) are still checking N reg every so often.

What could be come interesting is our post-Brexit world. Potentially exposing G reg to the same issue - having to pay import duty on arrival in the EU...

P1 and P2

An attempt to clarify P1 and P2. This is a generalisation, there will always be limited/occasional exceptions. Mistakes are all my own! P2 can only be logged in an aircraft that is OBLIGED to have 2 pilots: By manufacturer By the national regulator By the operator Thus, unless you have flown profess...

Re: ALL MEMBERS ! Please fill out those proxy forms..!!

One question of my own? We have statements supporting the two motions, and presumably people will speak in favour of the two motions. There has been nothing sent to the members to put the 'against' side to either motion, but will there be an opportunity to speak against each one at the meeting. A 'r...

Re: ALL MEMBERS ! Please fill out those proxy forms..!!

One additional item from me. I'm not engaged in a personal spat with Tracey, it's not me getting revenge. This is another fabrication. I have NO reason to complain about Tracey, she has not wronged me (although the recent emails looking for dirt from past clients may change that). We delivered our s...

Re: ALL MEMBERS ! Please fill out those proxy forms..!!

@drb I agree, but I do believe that Tracey's post is due a reply. (sorry!) As expected, this response is again cherry-picking and mud-slinging. The difficult questions are ignored every time, as they have been for the last 3 years. But, a short response to these points is perhaps interesting/useful:...

Re: ALL MEMBERS ! Please fill out those proxy forms..!!

@dmcnicholl I suspect that your question will not get a reply - but if it does, perhaps she could also answer some of the other questions in this thread at the same time (rather than cherry-picking or throwing mud about). One of her (false) complaints in the radio show was to claim that she had not ...

Re: ALL MEMBERS ! Please fill out those proxy forms..!!

Just had a chance to listen to the radio piece. Not about to dissect it here! It's really very simple, and has nothing to do with gender but everything to do with behaviour. It is also not personal - it's simply about right and wrong. Tracey lied about 'solo' during the Africa trip in 2013, she is s...

Re: ALL MEMBERS ! Please fill out those proxy forms..!!

Another post without any answers to the perfectly valid questions previously asked. Just one of these, again: Did you write the following on your Facebook page? Or will you tell us it was someone else? (20/11/13, in Nairobi, half way through the Africa trip) My complete silence since departing Cape ...

@Tracey I've answered all your questions/allegations. Any chance you could do the same for our questions? Plus one more question, did you write the following on your Facebook page? Or will you tell us it was someone else? (20/11/13, in Nairobi, half way through the Africa trip) My complete silence s...

Re: ALL MEMBERS ! Please fill out those proxy forms..!!

Tracey has variously described her flights as:

Solo
Sole pilot
Alone in the cockpit
Never solo
and now "that parts of the flight would be solo and others not"

It is perhaps unsurprising that people are confused.
