    Guys, I'm not an expert on the subject but we have to remember this is in its infancy. I don't doubt we have, or are very near to having, the tech. A lot of the stumbling blocks will be human greed;...

    Thanks for that. Everything you've mentioned I'm familiar with and practice daily. I don't go to the optician often however I have my eyes tested and photoed at least twice a year by the retinal...

    I probably am, and Kelly at BMAA said that self cert is fine as long as it's 2000KG or under. My concern arises when you read the NPPL UK section of the ANO 2016 and also 2018 Diabetes Guidance...

    Thanks Martin. Since posting that message, I've amended it with the link to the current 2018 version of that document which clears things up a lot more. Essentially, the thing I just need to enquire...

    Thanks Joan. I've emailed BMAA already this morning so hoping they get back to me soon. From everything I can gather, there are medical conditions that can affect the safe operation of the aircraft...

    Hi all I'm hoping you can help or point me in the right direction. I seem to be hopelessly going round in circles. I read up and spoke to AME and everything suggested that as a Type1 (insulin...

    Many performance cars, be it IC, electric, or otherwise do not carry full size spares or even any spare. You wouldn't put a space saver space on a Tesla or petrol Porsche and, personally, I would not...

    Electric Flying

    Electric vs IC has always been a hot debate in the world of RC flying, where I've been an enthusiast for a good decade. Now, slowly, we are finally seeing E power gaining favour in the motor...

    Thanks, I thought this was the case, but it was mentioned on Private Pilot group on facebook that it was "soon to change". Couldn't find anything though, so thought it worth asking here.

    Got it, thanks :)





    Flying is always something I've had a passion. I wouldn't say I'm going in half heartily, more that I'm excited/nervous and that I am slightly concerned about the future...

    I had in my head that I'd be flying microlights 95% of the time with the occasional flight in a 4 seater to take up both parents etc. This, realistically, would very rarely happen so really the...

    Wow, thank you so much for spending that time. Hugely appreciated. I'm definitely of the persuasion that microlight flying is the most accessible for me, however what I'm still not set on is which...

    Thanks. I've flown the c42 and ct2k and thoroughly enjoyed them. I preferred the interior of the c42 but the performance of the ct2k. The eurostar looks great fun, and particularly good for spotting...

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah I'm used to the club aspect thanks to several years of RC flying.

    I don't think that that's what microlight flying entails but I just know that flex wing is not for me....

    Thanks for the messages all. For me, flying is not 'being a bird'. I'm not after the wind on my face sort of thing; I want to control and navigate an aircraft. In a perfect world I'd love to go all...

    So does that mean if I go for NPPL (M) and decide that LAPL is inf act for me, I essentially have to start training again?

    I need to be realistic; NPPL is probably best for me but I can't help...

    Am I right in saying that I can no longer go for an NPPL and then upgrade it to a LAPL? I gather that was what the April '18 deadline was about?

    Hopefully a new NPPL(M) learner!

    Hi all,

    I'm hoping to start to study to earn an NPPL(M) license in the nearish future. I'm a huge aviation fan and have always dreamed of flying myself. I'm 31 so thought that now is a good...
