  1. Avweb have 'cherry picked' a snippet of Info & published it !!!! The UK recommendation is that any Coastline Air Display should be flown over the water to minimalise risk to the General Public. The UK recommendation is that any inland Air Display MUST BE FLOWN in a designated area over the airfield ( away from the Crowdline areas ) Currently Fast Jets are forbidden from any aerobatic manoeuvres, just low passes and steep turns & climbs. As the Weather is so bad that virtually every bit of Inland UK is constantly rained on every airfield has a Coastline
  2. There are 649 photos of our Storm 280 on the internet. I actually just noticed that on the delivery flight it achieved 190kmh @4800rpm on a Fixed Pitch Prop ( [email protected] ) so I think we will need to repitch our CSU on the 280
  3. The Storm 280 is a slightly slower bird compared to the Storm 300 @ 5000rpm we are getting 97kias ( we have a Constant Speed Prop ) @ 4460rpm we are getting 87kias ( we have a Constant Speed Prop ) @ 4440rpm we are getting 84kias ( we have a Constant Speed Prop ) @ 4430rpm we are getting 83kias ( we have a Constant Speed Prop ) @ 4420rpm we are getting 81kias ( we have a Constant Speed Prop ) The Manifold pressure is set @ 22.2in MAP. 5000RPM / 22.2in MAP

  5. NT5224, I am slightly scared that " The route passes through your neck of the woods perhaps that will give you a bit of a home advantage? " I am not sure why I am scared of that though !!!! I suppose I will be more scared when I know what aeroplanes I would be up against as opposed to who I am up against :yikes:I am a very shy retiring type of person who has never been controversial in my life so I would ask everyone to look after me whilst visiting your Airspace. I am hoping to source an aeroplane from NZ or Australia to use as it will be more cost effective than positioning one from th
  6. The BMAA Elections this year had 5 spaces and they only managed to get 2 of the 4 already on council to put themself back into the 'mix' This year there were four Directors required to stand down or seek re-election. Those were: R Hughes, T Viner, A Aiken, S Harvey, Additionally Patricia Mawuli Porter, elected 2016, resigned from the Board in May 2017 There have been three nominations. A Aiken, R Hughes, F Thompson

  8. Hi Kirk, The Ultralight he has is a Tyro Mk II He tells me it was a 10-??? REGISTERED ultralight, he has removed the previous identity & is hoping to get a SSDR registration in the normal CAA way. I think the MAIN stumbling block is HE THOUGHT HE COULD FLY without any form of Pilots Licence in the UK. Thanks, Peter

  10. Hi All, I am looking for a bit of clarification on CAO 95.10 We have an Australian Gentleman who has moved from Thirroul Australia to Livingston Scotland who has a homebuilt microlight that he claims to operate under CAO 95.10 His intention is to place his CONTRAPTION into the UK SSDR Category, he seemed shocked that to fly a UK SSDR Microlight you need a Pilots Licence I can't find any real detail on CAO 95.10 ( Other than it looks like it was repealed on Jun 17th 2014 ? ) So really I foresee 2 issues. (1) He has flown his Homebuild Microlight here on the pretence of CAO 9
  11. This was the reply I received when I asked if they accept Overseas Entrants Hi Peter, Thanks for your query in relation to entering the 2018 Outback Air Race. It is certainly open to overseas entrants. A requirement for each entrant (team) is to raise a minimum of $2,000 AUS, although teams historical raise a significant amount more. All funds raised go towards the Royal Flying Doctor Service in Australia, so the challenge for you could be to secure contributors towards your team funds for an Australian charity - or maybe not. Should you be interested to consider further, we are very ke
  12. I can go one better than guessing the Aircraft in the foreground I can even name the person refuelling the C172 in your picture....... In this picture I can even name the person getting into the Cessna 172. Aviation Photo #1190291: Grob G-115D2 Heron - Tayside Aviation
  13. I am just asking them if they would accept a UK Entrant? If they will I will be an entrant.
  14. JohnnyUnleaded, Lets put the BMAA diatribe to bed now.... it actually gives me dyspepsia whenever I talk about the unsavoury things I think it is fair to say that every time we have actually met up in real life it has been amicable, my forums persona is mainly witty banter & I think the wolfpack mentality where one person got offended & then everyone joined like sheep in being offended was almost laughable 90% of the time Rick & I were having a laugh between us, yet everyone panicked thinking WW3 was going to start up. As I say, I am busier in Europe than I am in the UK,
  15. Johnny, I am sure you don't have any 'hidden agenda' where it comes to the Quaich nor do you really have much interest in the BMAA Politics, that is blatantly obvious as you have never put yourself up for Election. I am all for you having a passing interest in the competency levels of the elected council members, and any potential nominees. I know exactly what my Faults are & I also know what my positives are, suffice to say my competency levels are streets ahead of the complacency levels of those who have been elected over recent years. The BMAA have been bothered by the fact that b
