​​​​​​Where were you working in Greece? I have an old Euro CPL(H) but not looking to fly (59 years old, let be realistic) but looking for ops or ground crew. Got a fair bit of experience in those...

If you want to fly without a check pilot go 44. Due to the handling risks with a turbine it is hard to get self fly hire. It is great to get turbine experience if you are planning to go down that...

The definition of perfect pitch is being able to throw a set of bagpipes into the toilet without hitting the sides, same goes for the Banjo.

Sturgeon's fault

Have to say that I think Cameron was undone by the unfortunate rise of Ms Sturgeon. During the last election a lot of voters south of the border saw her as potentially holding the balance of power at...

Edinburgh Trip

Might be worth considering Cumbernauld Airport which has good transport links to both Edinburgh and Glasgow, fuel and is outside the control zones for easy access.

A bit Rich

I do find the attitude of the German led EU a bit rich considering that they are talking about a country that they raped and pillaged less than a generation ago.

Bad luck killed Ayrton not Williams.

We can speculate endlessly about the cause of the car leaving the road but the essential truth is that the accident was relatively, in Formula One terms, benign. The impact with the wall was very...

R22 Self Fly Hire in Scotland

From experience I would go to Perth. Better local flying, Perthshire is spectacular, and avoiding the micro climate at Cumbernauld which can ground you on days when the rest of Scotland is bathed in...

Tyre Nonsense

The situation could be resolved simply by producing a tyre which can last the race at a controlled pace (Alain Prost/Niki Lauda style) or can go flat out but will wear out at half distance requiring...

R44 incident

Was there not a very similar incident with a 44, think it had just left Manchester Barton with exactly the same, inadvertant IMC and loss of control setting a transponder code. Maybe enough of a link...

Lotus 79

Got to agree, lovely car, manual box etc. but not much aero? It was the first fully developed ground effect car with sliding skirts to seal the underbody air flow. It had so much aero that 'jumper'...

Last boring race?

Yakker,

Pressure on Alonso the whole way through and the last few laps (had you switched off?) lit up by the great Robert Kubica. The man is there with Vettel, Hamilton, Rosberg and Kobyashi...

Electric cars will cost you, and the environment!

Absolutely right.
