Yes, indeed But Loches is rather on the way to the Chateaux , or on the way back from either of the airfields, not a place where any significant sightseeing takes place, so I would normally have...

Yes, thank you, but I wanted the name of the microlight pilot. Expect I will find out tomorrow. Could be one of two instructors, or someone else entirely. It's a strange place to be sightseeing,...

I don't think the correctness of the language matters. What does concern me is knowing the identity of the microlight pilot without worrying relatives. The name of the DR400 pilot has been made...

Some great ideas, thank you. I'd never thought about the Marais on a bike, despite it being near home. I've done the veloddysee, but all the others are new to me.

A bit cross about this. Had planned a trip from Fance to UK in September. Got onto Brittany Ferries to see what I could sort out with the bookings. Pleasantly surprised to be offered a new booking...

No man is an island,
Entire of itself,

A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,

I've got a caravan type CO detector in my ST87. Screams loudly enough to be heard above the engine at climb power, gets through the noise canceling headset no problem. Has a shut off button and runs...

Mikehallam, another option that could work for you is along the coast to IOW then turn left to Caen. Straight on to Chauvigny, or if you have the range clear inbound at Tours.

It's good that you are planning ahead. I would suggest dealing with the air law and theory of flight, probably also human factors, first. Meteorology and navigation might be easier to learn one you...
