    Perhaps they're fishing for a revaluation of business rates on the farm?

    The end ?

    What a shame. I have found the Rans owners section particularly useful over the years and have contributed regularly there in particular.

    Ah yes, the Shotley Naval Academy :-)
  9. For those who think they are afraid of heights!

    The only practical purpose any of this might serve is that it helps me check my sphincta is tuned properly !
  10. For those who think they are afraid of heights!

    No, 'fraid not. Honestly couldn't watch it. Free climbing... Stuff that for a game of soldiers!
    Interestingly, when I've mentioned having no head for heights, several fellow pilots have told me...

    Paul, If the scum weren't armed with high velocity weapons, I'd agree with the microlight being ideal. At 500ft range I'd not be inclined to rely on inaccurate shooting. The AK47 is fully automatic...

    I saw a news report recently about Rhino poachers. The sight of a Rhino with its horn hacked off was sickening. Apparently, that results in loss of its sense of smell and is a severe threat to the...

    What a crazy muddle! I note from the original CAA info that they excluded the NPPL holders from the process, yet a good number of us NPPL(M) holders are not strangers to...

    Joan has a point.
    However, there has to be something wrong if the CAA has issued an FRTOL to an individual and still insists on him/her jumping through hoops. Issue of an FRTOL should automatically...
