    Memberships and Syndication issues

    Dave Broom does make a good point . What is good for instructors is good for BMAA .

    A local observation I would make is that it is the quality of the flying club and schools which are one of...

    Duxford Bonus Day

    Longer term this is something we need to think about. if Duxford are going to cancel on us just a few weeks beforehand then I suspect we might need to explore alternative venues for our 2017 members...

    Duxford Bonus Day

    Thats really surprising given how positive they were last year. They told us the BMAA event was the biggest fly in they hosted last year and they seemed really keen to grow the event. Very odd....

    Camping gear to get?

    Re the air beds make sure you get a thermal model like a thermarest or similar. They are absolutely essential in Scotland even in the summer . My first Fly Uk I used a conventional airbed and was...
  11. got a two seat tail-dragger and a big heart, anyone? (East Anglia based)

    Try Bedford microlights at Sandy. There is a TST based there and they do offer conversion courses I believe.

    SSDR and the BMAA

    I am not an SSDR pilot and fly an LAA aircraft but am still a member of the BMAA because I think they offer the best and most effective representation for microlight pilots. I don't think focusing...

    converting NPPL M to SSEA

    You do the Nav ex with the instructor and it is in essence no different to what you had to do on the NPPL. Its just that GA tend to have different approaches.

    The BMAA bursary scheme

    I think Laurie has made some very good points here. It is time to review the way the scheme operates to reach a wider audience. Planting a seed through funded trial flights or a short course might be...

  23. World's first Saltire windsock flown at Strathaven

  24. World's first Saltire windsock flown at Strathaven

    William. I am sure we both agree Scotland's share of the debt will be honoured as most of the threats on both sides in this campaign have been mainly bluster.
