I know people at both, although I'm not local - both have always impressed me with their approach and professionalism.

I'd suggest arranging to visit both, then deciding which you like the look of...

If it's illegal, I'm in trouble as I've been doing it with that software on and off for years.

That said, I have a multi-device licence, and often print the key bits of route off on A4 from my...

I've never done that many hours in one month.

I do have two adjacent pages of my logbook when I was a student at ETPS with 13 sorties in a row, in 13 different types: last one admittedly a private...

Some developing thoughts....

- Dan is clearly a Cranfield fan, as am I! But, City is still good.

I hope I qualify as both an academic insider, and an aircraft industry insider - but I'm also an engineer and pilot, so business management isn't really my forte: I do flying machine stuff.

I haven't - I know the aviation safety / aero-eng people at Coventry, and they're good - but I'm less convinced that Coventry have much skill in aviation management. They appear to not have external...

You are comparing two excellent courses here: both universities are very good, both courses are very good, both courses are taught by people who really know what they're doing. You probably can't...

As it happens I know all three reasonably well.

All are good, all are a bit on the expensive side - presumably because of their relative closeness to London, all three have schools who look after...

Makes you a bit better at flying by reference to attitude, particularly for the landing.

Other than that - no, not really. It just happens that some of the most fun aeroplanes to fly out there are...

It's a complete mystery. All we know, is that nobody who matters in the UK wants us to leave EASA.

Signed.

I never had anything to do with the accident, or the investigation. But I did occupy a post at MoD at the time where I saw the iterating draft reports - which told me more than enough to...

I have flown various C, D and E series Shadows. They are nice to fly, but need a fair bit of TLC - I'd own one *IF* I didn't need to fly with a passenger much (it's a bit cramped in the back), and...

I'd strongly recommend joining London Universities Air Squadron if they'll have you, and also that there's a very good London University Gliding Club. University gliding clubs are great for the...
