  1. As a matter of interest, did you manage to solo 25 years ago?
  2. I started flying in 1965 and "affirmative" was commonly used. Those were the days of full reporting and I think that requirement helped create a higher standard of radio use.....call me old fashioned!
  3. Loganair used to operate Twin Otters into Unst in the Shetlands, 640 metres. They did it with ease, great aircraft. Cheers.
  4. Is that 1947 along the bottom of the middle photo?
  5. Good luck with it....shame the manufacturer hasn't made an effort to assist owners with this.
  6. Any progress with the MTOW increase benjam?
  7. Lawrie Hutton has achieved his goal to fly to the four extreme points on the Australian mainland. The local TV station spoke with him on his arrival home yesterday.
  8. He still has to fly to Wilsons Promontory, been delayed for several reasons, weather being the main obstacle. He plans to fly that final leg in the very near future.
  9. Well, Lawrie has reached three of his destinations despite several delays due to weather and electrical problems. "I am back "on air” after visiting the far west. I am currently waiting on a three day clear weather envelope, so as to make a dash to overfly Wilsons Promontory, the fourth and final of my planned exteme compass points in my “adventure”. However, that said, it is good to be home for a few days." Lawrie.
  10. I agree with RKM, you should find an experienced instructor and revise the effects of power and attitude and how to apply them to achieve a correct approach. Blackboard first then go flying with him.
  11. Hi Doug, Can you give me your mobile number please, I have a couple of questions about our Lightwing. Peter

  14. Let's not jump to conclusions! News is reporting two fatalities.
