Re: Training on permit aircraft - what are they checking?

I'd never even heard of one before now, lovely machine.

Surely not ab initio training? Tailwheel or aerobatics then?

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

...but this situation would never have arisen had the LAA Board not allowed its AGM to be used as a vehicle for a campaign of personal retribution by Mr Rutherford and friends On the contrary. This situation would never had arisen had your publicity been factual and when called into question, hones...

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

Thanks for that Brian. I personally think the board are doing an excellent job running the LAA on our behalf. This debacle is not of their doing and if only it would go away. I believe dark forces are at work here and would like a bit more openness from all sides. I do understand the need for confi...

Re: Training on permit aircraft - what are they checking?

It's an interesting point, what needs checking to allow an aircraft to be used for training I wonder? I can only guess it might be whether or not the control layout is suitable, maintenance history perhaps (although if it has a Permit the aircraft is airworthy)? I honestly don't know. I really am cu...

.... reading threats of votes of no confidence... Where? Paul. Rather curious why you omitted the rest of that sentence, "or otherwise" ? Ref: your post, top of page 15. The words "vote of confidence" would imply that some might vote otherwise. It looks like you are having a pop at me. Please stop ...

Re: Plans for winter?

Engine baffles for me - old ones are very old. I renewed the induction ducting and seals on my Jodel (similar job). They weren't old, the whole airframe only has 100 hours on it, but the originals didn't seal at all well. Gained 100rpm static thrust from that. What I really could do with is a half ...

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

I also have a question about votes and their counting.

What is to prevent someone voting by proxy and raising a hand at the AGM? Not that I am suggesting anyone would do this but what are the mechanisms behind counting and ensuring that only members are in the room?
