          Plan as far as I know (and he has asked me to take care of it), is for Kieths machine to be offered for sale after the European Microlight Championships, so it is available if needed to make up the numbers in eth single set class for any pilots that cant bring their own machines. It will then be sold and all proceeds go to the BMAA for a bursary fund - so no stupidly low offers please!

          One enhancemnt I discovered the other day which Keith had forgotton about is that he has a complete set of unfitted new skins with it..

          I am sure if anyone buys it who wants to fly it in the Europeans then the sale may be possible to bring forwards ?

            Thanks Paul,

            I did briefly speak with Keith with regard to the Sluka. Are you dealing with the sale or just keeping your eyes and ears open for him? Where will the champs be held this year? I was planning on going as a spectator...do you think if I flew the Sluka over, he would sell? I love the idea of the proceeds going towards a bursary fund, time to get some more youngsters like myself into the sport!!

            Im based out at Wanafly Airsports so am pretty well situated to go anywhere in Europe!!

            Interested in your thoughts Paul..

            Thanks for taking the time to reply.

            James.

              I have a very covetted Sluka that has never got wet other than when washing it. I intend to carry out reinforcement of the forward wing attachment on the boom before parting with it. At present this area is sound (dye penetrant inspection) and I have the tail feathers off for painting the tubing framework. The opportunity will be taken to refabric the tail (although it passes the Betts test).

                      There are "wanted " sections to both the BMAA classifieds and on AFORS that may be worth a try. Failing a response from those you might want to try the same tactic as a friend of mine. He determined that he wanted a Phantom and wrote to all the Phantom owners on GINFO. He had several replys and now is the proud owner of a superb Phantom, it could be worth trying if all else fails

                        Thanks Ginge,

                        I'm toying with various ideas for a first and cheap aircraft. Kicking myself that I didn't follow up on a Phantom on AFORS recently and similarly a Minimax. Just looking at single seaters due to budget mainly. I am only training at present but looking ahead (maybe too far!)

                          If you have a fairly open mind it can be suprising how many good buys show up, specialy single seaters and with the present strange bias against 2 strokes the prices can be really good.
                          Good luck and let us know how you get on
