Airtourer, AirTrainer

I'm a pretty low houred PPL but have managed to get ratings on a couple of models ( 150 and CT4/E ) and have found them to be good ships. I did all my initial training on C152s so it took a bit of...

All I can say is I hope that the aircraft was privately owned. I rent 172s from time to time in Hamilton and I would hate to think that I was getting into an aircraft that some plonker had decided to...

Newspaper report said that the aircraft was nicknamed "the kid".
