I've done a few seminars in my time, mainly mediocre with the honourable exception of Pooleys at Shoreham which was brilliant. I can't help feeling that these occasions are wasted opportunities. In a...

I'm long retired and I wouldn't dream of second guessing the inquiry but I can't help thinking that too many present day pilots are indoctrinated to fly the aircraft through the system. Fine as far...

I'm totally with Ghengis and I teach cockpit management from day 1. The nub of the problem is the lack of accessible storage space in all the two-seat trainers. The motor accessories industry has...
