I agree with the view that one should also consider doing their training in the country they'd be flying. Weather puts off too many prospective students who tend to look at Spain and the US. The...

Good that I asked this here. It seems I have unintentionally learned a bad habit and my FIs didn't notice. I'll definitely work on getting it right.

don't know if that should be the way to go as I am a non-UK PPL student and doing the training in Spain.

Now that they have a tri-gear, how does it perform on the points you mention? Any experience?

why not more Europa around

By now I have flown in a RV and seen a few RV projects. It is enough to say that other experimentals can only dream of similar popularity.
