All of them are crucial - that should be self-evident. If they weren't, they'd not be in the syllabus.
Which of them are more or less dry to yourself will depend on yourself; but you'll have to get...

Seconded. When I took the PPL ground class, brilliantly given by a university don who was also a private flyer, air law was the first book of the syllabus engaged. With however one notable exception:...

@Lacasta: welcome here! I am not an authority on the subtle matter of licensing, but I feel inclined to think that the ultralight license (why the Brits want to talk of a "microlight" is an eternal...

Well, for this once Belgian law shows better common sense then. Here, they'd be considered as rendering a service under family relations, besides their pay being unregistered. Accidents would be...

I reckon that's a matter of semantics. I have at one time "hired" my nieces to come and "do" my garden - paying them handsomely so they could properly fit themselves out for the upcoming weekend....

Hoi Poeli, if you are still around after all these years, come to EBZH Kiewit to see the PH-4P4 that is now based there.

I find that a bit less strange upon considering we are in the "private flying" section.

@T/S: I think "Lot's a references to servo driven instruments." might be meant to read as "Lots of references to servo-driven instruments"

I largely agree with @ShyTorque above, only I am afraid the term "servo" or "servo-driven" has no strict definition; in fact I suspect many commercial offerers to use (or misuse) the word as they see...

Packing 2 planes in a standard 20' container is tricky business. It is not the feet cubed of volume that are sparse, but rather the square feet of side surface. The two wing halves of a SEP will each...

PV panels on the roof is a good concept, yes. I have no experience, but isn't it critical to clean them periodically, perhaps once or twce yearly?

If the plane is in a hangar, forget it: you'll never catch sufficient light. If it is not, standing parked will cause much worse worries than the battery discharging, I'm afraid.

Cruise high! Who was it that said "airspeed is safety, altitude is life insurance"? I am often amazed at how low some club fellows fly, 1000' not uncommon. Myself will (where allowed) keep at least...

Allow me to insist on politeness and good manners. We can argue, we can differ, ok, but than can be done in a civilised way.

I fully agree to that: I have never yet needed emergency services with...

As I pointed out before: it is equally possible to require assistance when staying at home. There is not a single zero-risk option except euthanasia. Which requires assistance, too, to do it legally.

Some of these comments are all too harsh, though perhaps well-meant. As it is, I could drive to my homefield, get the plane out of the hangar and ready to fly, take a nice tour in this glorious...
