I've got a copy of a 'discrete procedure' for Wellesbourne - looks like it originates from 1995 and uses the HON VOR and DME. Is this the same as an unpublished approach? I've only ever used it...

Without wanting to speculate on the cause, having an incident after take off on 18 at Wellesbourne can't be fun. Having practised many EFATOs on that runway, I know you're not left with a whole lot...

I picked up the Thom manual and the IMC Confuser from eBay for a couple of quid. I felt a bit guilty actually because they must have cost the guy a fair whack new!

I find all I need is something with a second hand. My Swatch seems to do the job fine :)

It isn't much further to walk around the perimeter from parking to the caravan either.

I think I've seen them illuminate before while flying - can't for the life of me remember where though; and like Mad_Jock, it made me jump a bit too! I don't like unfamiliar lights flashing on the...

Perhaps FADEC would just make flying easier then. Maybe it could be viewed in a similar way to having a panel mounted GPS, in that it could reduce the pilot's workload?

Is this old or fairly recent? I seem to recall an AAIB report on a Nipper which entered a spin and became difficult to recover from. The pilot put it in a field and ended up on his roof too.

I've used Rocket Route in the past, it's meant to be particularly useful for filing IFR flight plans. I'm not sure I'd pay to file the one or two VFR flight plans I do a year though.

You could come at it from a different angle; keeping a blog about your flying trips isn't really promoting, it's merely factual details about events which have happened.
