Rhedyn Coch and Greenlands - both are north of the A55 ! Well they were when I last landed on them...... (the strips owner will confirm this !)

Condors

MJ
Yes, I remember G-AYFD, G-AVZE and G-AWEI all at Sherburn in the early '70's (perhaps also G-AWSO and G-AVOH ?? - I'd have to dig out my first log book to check)
My first solo was on 'EI and...

Suitable training aircraft

Without a doubt, the trusty Rollason Condor.

Tailwheel, very pleasant controls, and will spin convincingly.

All of the Condors I learned to fly in had the placard "All aircraft bite fools"...

Home design and home built...

FelixF


If you have plenty of determination and patience, go for it, via the LAA.
I know someone who did successfully design and build his own single seater, quite recently.


He is now well...

Turb time

AB, the best piece of advice was Rogcal's suggestion about doing some time in a 2 seat Jodel. A Chipmunk is nothing like as light in handling as a Turb, neither is a Cub. Of the three, the Jodel...

Strip machine

Ecosse


You'll probably finish up with either a Jodel 117 / D120 or maybe a 90 horse PA17 Vagabond. Scotland isn't noted for having plenty of airfields where you can get fuel. A Jodel 117 carries...

Banana runways

Breighton originally had only a piece of peri-track for a runway.
Very definitely curved. 29 and 10 approx.
This was in pre Real Aeroplane Company days...

Who's who

Whoever your "talking ballast" was should have made it perfecty clear as to who was in charge and what your role amounted to..

Way out west

Coops
Barton via Crosland Moor, no problem, but going through Crosland's overhead could be exciting as the circuits are at 1825 QNH and joining aircraft could normally be as high as 2825 QNH,...

Which taildragger ?

Genghis
Bring back the trusty Condor I say !
But no, it's a cloth bomber so it needs hangarage, therefore it won't fit the wish list. Pity as they're a good aeroplane, albeit not quick. Plenty of...

Expensive low volts warning.

On an 0-200 or C90 the generator drive is in the accessory gearcase along with mag drive gears and starter drive. Not a good place to have metal debris from a sheared generator drive shaft. A rare...

You'd expect at best 2350 from a healthy C90 with that prop.....
I've seen as low as 2125, and a similarly leisurely takeoff performance.:)

Stripping

Have a look at the Highlands Strut website. It's a good starting point.
Scottish strips are closely guarded.......

Exciting landings...

"Some years ago", several Jungmanns (Jungmenn ??) had to be ferried to England from Spain.
It seems they didn't all get home without a few interesting arrivals due to the unlockable tailwheel being...

"to be precise" - Your own words.
But you weren't precise enough !
One major difference. Small aeroplanes like the Turb, Taylor Mono, have far less inertia that the Cub, Jodel, Tiger, so...

For enlightened pilots who have a northern 1/2 mill map, there's Crosland Moor, which does have a partly grass strip.
Just a short 10 minute walk from the airfield is the Sands House pub. Never...
