    Just to clarify my position on medicals. In my view, what is required is that states accept each other's medicals, or lack thereof.

    The UK already accepts French microlight licences with no...

    You're welcome Bob. Playing around with the Pilot 3 last night brought back many pleasant memories of flights made years ago. Must find my old Trimble now and see what waypoints I have in there.

    I agree. There was a time when I would happily drive from East Sussex to Telford or Birmingham for the show, but not any more. Nothing to do with age, traffic or cost, just a lack of anything...

    Dave,
    You are using a privilege to bash the biennal flight. The only reason we can do the flight in a flex or three-axis, is because the microlight rating covers both control systems (unlike car and...

    The short answer is no, because US ultralights are classified as vehicles, not aircraft.
