Re: Post AGM Thought

I see your point Matthew but would like the think that this was a one-off with nobody else being so crass as to drag us through a repeat.

I hear TCT has at least followed through on her promise to resign from the LAA so there’ll be no more tantrums from that quarter.

Re: Plans for winter?

Replace the registration lettering (can't stand the current font) <whisper> When the job’s finished it’s perhaps best not to bother the CAA registration department with a new photograph for GINFO. Several years ago I bought an aircraft that had 3-D effect font (had been there 28 years). As there wa...

The mirror? No, it's really a............oh okay, busted. :mrgreen:

Back in my bush flying days I carried a few survival items but buzzing around the UK I don't think them necessary. Apart maybe from some beer vouchers.

Re: First Aid kit

Did you buy a ready made one or is yours home grown? What’s in it? I’m putting one together and without going bonkers want to make sure I’ve not missed anything. I’ve got: Bandages, two sizes Triangular bandage Israeli bandage Burn dressing Gauze pads Sterilising wipes Plasters Roll of micropore tap...

First Aid kit

How many people carry a First Aid kit?

Of those who do, how many simply bought a Halfords £9.99 kit ten years ago and haven't looked at it since?

Re: Flying Flea

As far as looks were concerned perhaps it was in keeping with the austerity of the time. Y’know, smaller equals fewer materials. A bit like the Italian take on cars.

As for the short coupling, perhaps he knew no better. Did he have any other designs?

Re: How Many...???

Nine thousand would be great but recently we’ve been cited as having a membership of 7600-ish. Which are we?

Do the voices in my head count as more than one?

Re: Flying Flea

Hang on a minute.

You want to fly an aircraft that you command to climb it flys an outside loop?

You’re all wrong in the head. :lol:

Re: 'My Aircraft' in profile

It only left two days ago but I thought I'd get the ball rolling. Penny Sharpe from the office has been in touch (thanks Penny) and pointed me in the right direction. It will get done in the goodness of time. John. It does sound good, doesn't it? Good enough to cause second thoughts when it flew awa...

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

Just as a matter of interest, what is the gender split in membership of the LAA?? Someone, somewhere suggested 95/5 but I don't know how accurate their source might have been. But this is an old topic, discussed in many places over the years. Many women (the weird ones, obviously) are just not inte...
