Hi,

 

I would just like to introduce myself. I'm a Flexwing Pilot, P+M Quik 912S and fly out of a farm strip in South Wales UK. Thank you for allowing me to join your site and I look forward to chatting to some of you.

Hi Redsky, and 098_welcome.gif.81ff07d492568199326e4f64f78d7bc6.gif.

 

I'm originally from the UK myself and have travelled around Wales (a long time ago!). Whereabouts is your strip? It must be brilliant flying around there with that beautiful countryside - just the weather to contend with, I guess :)

 

Cheers,

 

Neil

Be honest with us, can you read that funny wording that they've changed to on the road signs now (Welsh language), or are you flying too high for that, that you don't care?

 

No need to thank us, it's great to have you onboard.

 

Send us some pic's when you get time.

Hiya Redsky,. . . . Nos Da.

 

As you can see by the flaggery, I'm just up the road in Staffordshire. Welcome to the Forum.

Many Thanks for the welcome Lads, in answer to some of the questions. The farm strip is called Oldpark Farm and is marked on the UK CAA 1:500,000 its adjacent to the M4 Motorway. Its a friendly strip, it can be challenging at times :) to say the least. We have a mixture of GA aircraft limited only by the landing strip at 350mtrs uphill/downhill. As to to the place names of the towns, well I'm from a place called Blaenllechau, so I guess I'm used to it. It would make more sense to have them all in one language as it would save a fortune.

 

Just completed a major mod to the aircraft, (New suspension, twin exhaust and a new Dash on the front. I had Flydat and I have replaced it with analogue instruments,

 

so taking it for a 200 hour service and mod check tomorrow. I'll no doubt be a lot lighter coming back as the wallet will be considerably smaller :). If any of you are passing, please do call in, I live close to the strip, if you need fuel just let me know and I'll meet you there with it.

Geez mate,. . . . Blaenllechau . . . .I'll bet an aborigine would have a LOT of trouble pronouncing that one. . . ! . . but a lot of the Aussie place names, although not all are aboriginal in origin, can be quite interesting to pronounce ! ! . . . .I take it you didn't like the digital instrumentation, . ?

Hi Redsky,

 

I think I have found your place on Google Earth - 51 deg 32.8 N 3 deg 43.0 W if I am correct, with Eglwys Nunydd Reservoir just to the west. Looks like a great place to fly, with the coast so close too.

 

Interesting that you put steam gauges back into your plane - I tend to agree, I find them easier to read "at a glance" than digital. Let us know how you get on with them, and if you think you made the right choice!

 

Hope the wallet recovers soon :)

 

Cheers,

 

Neil
