    P&M pulls plug on Rochdale

    Such a shame....
    For us "Northern" fliers it is a big disappointment as well as a major hassle for people.
    Most of all it's a shame for the fantastic staff. Always such a friendly warm welcome....

    Low priced Sails for SSDR

    Hi Andy....
    I couldn't agree more.
    I was only voicing my approval for Ace Aviation.
    The topic was solely about Ace Aviation.
    It was Paul D who said " not all suppliers may be worthy of uniformed...

    Low priced Sails for SSDR

    Hi Paul....
    The point I was trying to make was that the BMAA as a association would be in turmoil if P&M were to cease trading ( very unlikely I know) as there is no other permit aircraft choice as...

    Low priced Sails for SSDR

    As always Bob you make some very good points.

    Low priced Sails for SSDR

    Paul...
    Who are "all suppliers"?
    I am specifically referring to Ace Aviation.
    The simple fact is, there is no competition here in the U.K.
    Prices can be set at whatever P&M want them to be.
    If...

    Low priced Sails for SSDR

    Paul...
    My Ace Aviation wing is a delight to fly.
    Are you hinting it might not be "structurally" as sound as a P&M wing?
    The BMAA has to support P&M as it is the only option for anybody buying a...

    I couldn't agree more Victor.
    And it is still a 2 stroke.
    There are some very good, low hour Quiks available for well below that price.

    I was interested to read the flight test of the Quik Lite.
