    Looking for somewhere to go?

    I just flew in to Old Warden; No landing fee. The museum (Shuttleworth Collection) ticket was only 10.50 and the restaurant is now extended so less crowded than it used to be.

    Well worth a trip....

    Dave, calling it a check flight is confusing. That's the name we give to the permit revalidation flight.

    I didn't realise that PPL holder didn't have an equivalent flight.

    All the new 2 seat Flex are beyond the pocket of the market as it used to be.

    People who do have 35k to spend are not buying Flexs.

    I only use Memory-Map though, preferring to de-automate stuff that should have attention paid to them in pre flight planning, such as NotAms and route
