Carlisle were great for me, managed within a matter of days to organise and complete my QXC, and skills test shortly thereafter. They even assisted with the non-standard application to the CAA. I'm...

Seriously, EGKB - when you start your training, you will reach a...

Slightly O/T

GtE - not sure if that was aimed directly at me... My dad has flown microlights for 20+ years, and has a lapsed PPL(A). However, flying from small, often unlicenced fields across the country has...

Another vote for the Breitling Aerospace, on a dive strap so light and comfy. Been my everyday watch for the last 8 years. Had two batteries (around 50 and two weeks), but sadly the lower LCD has...
