    BMAA News item: New weighing procedure

    Yup, totally crazy - we've just bought a new C42 with ballistic chute precisely so that we can fly legally and gain a few extra kilo's for heavier students (and we're not talking really heavy here)....

    Shadow in Lithuania.

    Aha; funnily enough I nearly bought G-DARK too! The Shadow world is a relatively small one it seems :-)

    how old are flexwing flyers...

    Just 15 days left of being in the "40 - 45" category. There was a time when I would have been in the nonexistent "30 - 35" bracket - sigh... :rofl:
  13. Rotax 618 Anyone got experience with this engine?

    I had a Star Streak with a 618 a couple of years ago. I think I did about 80 hours or so in it; never missed a beat. Advice I received was to make very sure it was thoroughly warm before take-off and...

    Hi all,
    I noticed an issue with the nosewheel in the school's GT450 the other day which may not always be readily apparent.

    Side Pillar Windows

    Hi Steve,
