Arrow Have you got a new tacky Licence, made with a John Bull Kiddies Printing Kit?

Just got my licence back from the CAA following a change to it. What a surprise! The new one was in a cheap-looking plastic binder, and the new style insert pages look as if they have been produced by a seven year old child with a John Bull printing kit. Disgraceful, considering the charges involved.

When I asked for my nice green, gold-embossed book to be returned I was told it had been destroyed and that the plastic one was a "suitable binder" for an ATPL. Disgusting service, I think, as the binder was mine, not theirs. The arrogance of these people never ceases to amaze me.

I'm considering serving a summons on them, after all, the green book effectively cost 60,000!

Thrush, sorry but you sound just like my 90 year old grandad.

The only person who ever sees my green book is in the sim I don't feel the need to impress him with gold embossed text.

Personally I think that a credit card would be better. Especially if you could use it in the cash points too.
