    I have followed links on both of these lists and...

    I have followed links on both of these lists and found them to be dead. Does anyone at all provide tailwheel instruction in a school aircraft?

    Also, why is a GA aircraft (a Tigermoth) included in...
  3. Please suggest exciting re-validation experience

    I am looking for an exciting hour with an instructor for my re-validation. I don't like re-val experiences just to be a formality. I want to learn something new and preferably in an aircraft I have...
  4. Retractable, different from the Dragonfly

    http://aeros.com.ua/manuals/ANT_manual_en.pdf

    fascinating....in part, as others have said, because it is very largely the Dragonfly...but also because it shows how the re-tract works. I think I...

    Interesting airfield art

    Is that a tribute to WW1 prop deflectors, which protected props from machineguns fired through them?

    Mounting the pitot tube correctly

    Thanks so much, John, that is incredibly helpful. The pitot and static arrangement looks just like ours, and as we don't want to be re-calibrating, I reckon we'll keep ours as it is.

    Mounting the pitot tube correctly

    We have been told that our pitot tube is incorrectly mounted and that it should be nearer the leading edge of the wing. Where exactly should it be?

    All I know is that the opening should be into...

    An odd sort of Flyout

    Really good report, Ginge.

    Despite having to abort the landing at Duxford, which was VERY disappointing, it was still a great day and an enjoyable navX, with my numbers working out well. I used...
  14. got a two seat tail-dragger and a big heart, anyone? (East Anglia based)

    :burger: The sofa had to go in order to make room for the wing, but back then I lived alone. Lucy wouldn't stand for it now.

    If you can find a way to make them cheaper then I am all ears - we dream of a profit!

  16. got a two seat tail-dragger and a big heart, anyone? (East Anglia based)

    I agree. And I think that it is making microlighting into a poor man's GA. Some of us actually prefer the idea of microlighting as a re-connection with pioneering flight. carpeting and heaters are...
  17. got a two seat tail-dragger and a big heart, anyone? (East Anglia based)

    Would you, Ginge? That is marvellous. Thank you.

    You will know from Joan that I am far from a talented pilot, so I may have a taster and decide to leave it until I am more confident as a fixed...
  18. got a two seat tail-dragger and a big heart, anyone? (East Anglia based)

    My impression is that trike development has been huge, where fixed wing really hasn't developed anything like as fast; and in fact I wonder if fixed wing has really come on at all for a long time?

    hahaha :lol:
  20. got a two seat tail-dragger and a big heart, anyone? (East Anglia based)

    but can you turn the engine off and climb faster than you can with the engine on?
  21. got a two seat tail-dragger and a big heart, anyone? (East Anglia based)

    The Dragonfly really is a wonderful experience but I do think they are expensive new. Second hand ones are a good option, though. The Alpha cannot possibly compete for buoyancy/ glide or soaring. But...

    oh, BRILLIANT....thanks Peter!
  23. got a two seat tail-dragger and a big heart, anyone? (East Anglia based)

    I have had a Quantum and a Dragonfly. Also had a Q, but never flew it before selling it on.

    Flew a Flash II for a few hours in 1992.

    Forgive me, John, but are you the chap who sold me a hang glider ASI, once upon a time?

    What a fantastic first cross country! I'd like to do that sort of thing.

    TST, you mean?

    My first microlight flight was with Ian Stokes, circa 1990 and that was in a taildragging Thruster. I have a real soft spot for the type.
