This "story" is at least 3-5 years old, and was disproven then - why has it suddenly reappeared? A clickbait website recycling old news?

If you're heading up past Oban, an overnight at Glenforsa is a good shout (if it's open) - just park up and walk into the hotel :)

Carry on bags even on someone like BA have been getting crazier and crazier over the last few years. Economy pax now think nothing of taking a trundle-bag which won't fit in the overhead, and...

Why did the camera man wait until after landing to get his lifejacket on - if that's what he pulls out of the seatback infront of him? Would have thought it would have been on and ready prior to...

From a bit more Googling, there do seem to be commercial SR22 sims out there with the side yoke - might be worth contacting them to see if it's something that can be sourced independently, but I'd...

This is probably in the wrong forum as it sounds like you're wanting a controller for an SR20 in MS Flight Sim.

Anyways - there isn't one on the market afaik, your best bet would be to buy a yoke...

How exactly are we going to manage that when he gets deported next year when his leave to remain runs out, after 12 months of tax-payer funded PPL lessons? (Plus accommo, plus legals).

IMHO, met and nav were the hardest topics until you actually do some flying, then they're no problem.

If you're already planning XCs with a plog, Nav ceases to be an issue.

Does that change at June 2014?

Is the TC indication weird in that photo, or do you think he has a bit of bank on - I can't really tell. If he's doing about 140 knots, would he not need a 20+ degree bank angle for rate 1?
