Here's another one, in quite different whereabouts. Slightly less expensive, and looks a good deal more impressive. With some negotiating skills, the Cessna might even be in the deal! :) The runway...

Glad to see some reaction regarding the HF requirement. But, please excuse my ignorance, what is or what means "the OCA"?

Could you be more specific? Coordinates, even if approximative?
And if you found it listed, where was that?

Only a faint memory, and perhaps it was never more than rumour: wasn't there a time when the carriage of short-wave radio, aka HF, was mandatory for Iceland and/or Greenland? Especially on VFR...

[[ slightly off - topic ]]
@BackPacker: yes, Dutch regulations on storage and sales of fireworks are very strict. Which did not avoid the Enschede disaster, unfortunately. Still, there is little...

Shouldn't the owner of the hangar be concerned above all? But it never hurts to check the small print of one's fire insurance - if available...

Bite the sour apple and work until you have the license. If you don't enjoy navigation right now, nobody will force it on you if once you pass the tests. You can fly the circuit as much as you like,...

At the contrary, as I already pointed out. There's plenty of Rotaxen flying around without auxiliary electric fuel pump - all high-winged, of course, with the fuel stored in the wings. It is the...

By keeping half an eye on the fuel pressure gauge? Nah, make that 1/100th or even 1/1000th of an eye. Your state-of-the-art EFIS may probably even sound an alarm on occasion.

I agree with earlier: as long as the pump does not run dry, it won't get any harm. Still, there's not much use in activating it, actually I am not sure this particular type of plane requires one. It...

??? wikipedia confirms there's two localities by that name, but places one in Cambridgeshire, the other in Hertfordshire?

Yes. At least, it is the only terminology I learned during training, and it is the only thing I hear on the FIS over here. Then again, you seem to be in the UK, where many peculiar habits survive.

And regarding the "emergency": apparently one valve broke, that is of course serious but it might be sheer bad luck. Moreover, the affected types are the 915iS and the 914, not the most common types...

There are a few in the ex-"Eastern Block" countries, too, but I don't think many were built. One Boris Chernov created basically one and the same amphibian with a multitude of engine configurations,...

"Definitely"? Yes, it is definitely closed today. But not definitively - after all not many decisions are free from reconsideration. Did you know its ICAO code LIDI is still reserved? And I do not...
