    There’s an airfield in Oxfordshire, marked as disused, called Grove. I believe Airbox operate at that site. Don’t know though if it’s used for flying.

    That's a really good paper, especially relevant to vfr flying in the crowded UK South East. The FASVIG views on reducing CAS by adopting RNAV flight path clearances would release lots of what is...

  7. Changes to the Self Declaration Medical system - 25 August 2016

    We don't fly EASA aeroplanes and I believe our medical regime is not EASA either. It could be very worthwhile giving the BMAA office a call to find out how to talk to our ( BMAA) medical...

    It's worse than that because even if your GP could sign you off again as fit to fly, and irrespective of now having a 'history ', there is no GP form to sign. It's been removed!

    Effects of wind shear

    Getting away

    Well done Peter. Having visited Cromer/Northrepps many times I can say 04 is never an easy landing with turbulence off the trees. And Blakeney Point can be very photogenic with the right state of...
