    Bailey Engine carb parts

    I was at Bailey's factory very recently, Ben Ashman was there too delivering a trike for PB to fit a new engine to, so very much in business. There was a flying underwater-wheelchair in one corner. ...

    Anyone using Lynx Relai Headset?

    Hi Sean, between paramotoring and SSDR I have never used anything other than Lynx Relai headsets. My original, chipped for Icom, was bought in 2003 and is still going strong. It was looking a...

    Possible Sales Scam

    People like me use free email providers so you don't have to change your address when you change your broadband provider Wally. Unfortunately not even scammers are interested in my Dragonfly.

    Local SSDR rallies?

    A local SSDR rally could also use an airfield with more than one runway for an SSDR-friendly crosswind option, rather than just using the nearest airfield to Deadington.

    Local SSDR rallies?

    Hi John,

    Yep, I'm now an ex-microlight pilot; as Texas said, 'the thrill has gone.' I won't be going back to paramotoring though, I have a shed full of other toys that need my attention.

    Local SSDR rallies?

    It is a good idea but I get the feeling that SSDR fliers are rather solitary by nature (I may be judging everyone else by my standards there) and pretty spread out geographically. Of course everyone...

  12. CAA looking at Deregulate the pilot licensing of small single occupant aircraft

    All my ex-RAF mates that went through the ATPL complained that it was full of irrelevant, outdated guff and the CAA should be taken to task about it. Then they passed the course and became great...

    Dragonfly For Sale

    Ben Ashman has given me a telling off for pricing it too low, hence my edit. I bought a second-hand 4V-200 powered one with all the bells and whistles but basically the same aircraft.

    This will wind up the old-school...

    A pilot from our club flew to Elvington and back on Monday past the GPS-jamming NOTAM. He said one of his GPSs went haywire and the other didn't react.
  20. Thought for the day - should BMAA and BHPA join forces?

    I did a BHPA Tow PG course in the UK after 100 hours of paramotoring outside the system. The school was launching ab-initio students with a winch while they were attached to the launch point by a...
  21. Thought for the day - should BMAA and BHPA join forces?

    The BMAA is a very broad church, Rick Goddin's epic adventures could not be further from what I want from flying. I came to microlighting from paramotoring and only because of SSDR, I would not be...

  23. CAA looking at Deregulate the pilot licensing of small single occupant aircraft

    I have always thought of my Dragonfly as a rigid-winged paramotor. Like all responsible paramotor pilots I undertook training with a highly-recommended instructor, so what was I taught? I was...
  24. CAA looking at Deregulate the pilot licensing of small single occupant aircraft

    Funny old thing Paul, we disagree again. What on earth has local flying and restricted licence got to do with it? My contention is that I could have completed the NPPL to Dragonfly standards in...
  25. CAA looking at Deregulate the pilot licensing of small single occupant aircraft

    Having done my NPPL on a Quantum to qualify me to fly a Dragonfly I became convinced of the need for a SSDR-level NPPL. It took me a long time to learn to get a Quantum onto the ground in an...
