    Memberships and Syndication issues

  4. Licences to be provisionally suspended for infringing pilots

    I was thinking the exact same thing Steve! This hasn't really been thought through.
  5. got a two seat tail-dragger and a big heart, anyone? (East Anglia based)

    I would say the Dragonfly is the best value machine I have ever bought for smiles to the pound. As Peter so brilliantly put it above, isn't that what it's supposed to be about?

    ...and Steve...

    American Aerolight Eagle Project

    Do you mean that it is a standard single engine Eagle that has a couple of engines, one to use one spare? Are they Cuyuna or Zenoah? I know an Eagle owner looking for a Cuyuna as his is melted beyond...

    High performance training aircraft, yes or no?

    Well said Ginge. If getting there is the most important thing then you fly a microlight for reasons the concept wasn't originally invented for. There are far better machines out there to achieve your...

    John Kendall summed it up just right when he said the paramotor community now is what the microlight community was then.

  21. Wheel launchable paramotors into the SPHG definition?

    Actually I'd be quite happy to see a lower loading limit around the 14-15 kg per square meter! If we use high values then we end up with all the development going in the wrong direction. The whole...

    High performance training aircraft, yes or no?

    That's a lovely idea Tom but if you take a look at a more developed model such as the BGA you will see that the system eventually runs out of people coming in at the bottom.

    High performance training aircraft, yes or no?

    Steve, many of the issues you mention (such as comfort, etc) would have been engineered out through time so referring to 390kg machines from that era against current 450kg machines is not a fair...
  24. Wheel launchable paramotors into the SPHG definition?

    Yes, I'm all for this. I would be happy to see a limit on wing loading to avoid the issues Paul mentions. Mind you I think we almost need that now for foot launch with the crazy attempts to fly...

    One mans meat is another mans poison. Steve, most things you want in microlighting are most things I don't want! The "market" decides what the manufacturers produce but unfortunately that is at the...
