500m if you are in current practice. Best to have a bit more for your first few hours. The aeroplane will float if you come in too fast. Depending on the prop the take off is quite spritely. Mine has...

Can vouch for the H10 13.4. It's a really good passive (non ANR) headset. Active noise reduction is good but it will almost double the cost of a new headset. I am guessing that some of the other...

I would like to point out that I do know what I am talking about and I am in a position to comment. The various run of the mill American spam cans are relatively cheap to buy and operate. I have...

PA38 can be purchased for approx 2/3 the price of a C152. The C152 is the better aeroplane. The C152 has no lifed parts other than the engine and the throttle cable. The PA38 has larger fuel tanks as...

A well looked after non factory corrosion proofed aeroplane is worth considering, but make sure you get a independent pre-purchase inspection done by someone who knows what the are looking for. The...

You have to take the written exams in the same country as your medical. Your medical generates a reference number which later becomes your licence number. The flying syllabus is the same across EASA...

Why they have to mess with a system that works eg date of test and valid until is beyond me. Why put boxes on a page that don't get filled in is stupid. The holders logbook is the important document...
