Interesting...

My understanding was that SSEA was for NPPLs and SEP was for PPLs (CAA or EASA), and n'er the twain shall meet.

Is it that CAA FCL has either put the incorrect rating on the...

Thanks Genghis, that is quite an illuminating site. Sadly, it made no mention of my cycling proficiency or swimming badges ;(

Back to the OP's question.

All aspects of Hovercraft (design, build, flying) used to be controlled by the aviation authorities (latterly CAA) but it was eventually realised that this simply added...

Lantern10 and Westaussielame, thanks for the responses. It looks like you are both right. The T-bar would seem to be a locally made holder for the Champion two-pronged feeler gauge. Interestingly...

Spark plug feeler gauge/gap setting tool

I've been using a nice little gap setting tool for massive electrode plugs. Somebody else sourced it for me years ago and I now want to buy another one - but cannot find one anywhere.

Well, Tigers, Ryans, Wots, Cubs, Pitts', Jodels, Hornet Moths, Stampes and Harvards actually - but then that is the risk of trying to generalise. As you hint, you fly each to their own strengths and...

A couple of questions have occured to me on this topic:

1. Does sending someone solo after tailwheel differences training count? Done away from a DTO or ATO as a stand-alone FI and CRI.

Pilot DAR. Interesting view on wheelers versus three point landings. Not sure I agree (actually i am sure, I don't agree). Both techniques have their place and you can use either, to your prefence,...

Interesting Whopity, thanks. I have been included on a CAA list of R Examiners in my role as an LAA Coach and understood this was to allow me to revalidate national licences.

Having learn't to fly on Tiger Moths I don't have first hand experience of going from nose-wheel to tailwheel; just the other way!
