I've always been relatively well behaved around town in 30 limits because I don't want a dozy...

Maybe the difference in approach stems from my background in gliding and microlighting where for different reasons I was always taught that power was a privilege rather than a right.

Hear hear.

There's no reason for the risk exposure. To put it another way: Once my engine is shown to be as reliable as gravity, I'll start flying three degree approaches for no special reason...

Gertrude, you're not alone. I do just that when trying to achieve a short roll out or when practicing for spot landing comps.

In my opinion there is nothing wrong with doing it if you know why you...

I reckon its the right decision as well. I went via that route and I'm certain that the greater variety of aircraft I've flown along the way has made me a better pilot. I also feel that during...

I don't think I could afford to fly if I took up golf with any level of commitment. Its fortunate for me that I hate the game with a passion.

On the Permit vs CofA costs question, permit aeroplanes are much cheaper to maintain, not because there is less maintenance, just because you can do most of it yourself.
