I'm just posting to suggest you post this question on Flyer forum, where you'll likely get more replies. I predict there'll be a good split between those saying "factor ...

Re: LAA COVID ADVICE. 11th May 2020

I've been struggling to understand the reasoning too, in such situations where staff are not employed. At many airstrips and smaller airfields contact can be eliminated completely. We are all used to sanitising supermarket baskets and trolleys and the like and apart from ones own aircraft, a fuel bo...

Re: RSA/UML Forum?

Is the problem a problem of physically posting? Language? We probably need a tad more information, Mike. Happy to help if I can.

The RSA forum is here. Registration required.

Re: Why do so many VP-1's fall into disuse?

Firstly ChampChump I hadn't realised all this 'Woke' nonsense had got into aviation too. Yes I'm seatist it seems! I feel suitably shamed...... No, carry on planning.

Re: Why do so many VP-1's fall into disuse?

I probably missed it (dazzled by Mr Martyr's wisdom :D ) but I don't think anyone mentioned that on Sales & Wanted..is G-BCTT.

Re: HIGH BAROMETIC PRESSURE – CHECK YOUR ALTIMETERS!

I was hoping to be able to have some fun with this, but we are still unable to use the runway.

Please could someone press the fast forward button as it doesn't work when I try?

I suspect you are not alone in that, Mike :wink:
