Yes, as per the above comment, be aware that buying your own aircraft to do a PPL in is a lot more expensive than hiring an aircraft through a club, and unless you are intending to fly it very...

Whether that was what it was intended to mean originally, I think (?) It is pretty universally now accepted to be what Centaurus describes and has certainly been cited in quite a number of accidents...

A drone would (probably) have been seen, even momentarily, had it indeed hit the windscreen, and surely would have left at least some obvious trace within the cockpit... I'm inclined to agree with...

The number of times on uncontrolled frequencies I hear "ABC, abeam Smithville, 3,000ft". Useful position information right there.

Not a radio call as such but an exchange I was involved in with a...

I have seen a C-172 fitted with a ballistic chute but at the expense of having no baggage locker. Not sure if a similar thing is possible with a PA-28.

Also something else to note, this may have changed so I'd suggest investigating further, but certainly until recently there was a rather strange rule which required when you did a NZ BFR, if the law...

I think ETI is the one in DT's hangar; ETP is elsewhere on the airfield in a very non-airworthy state. There's also a turbine one at Ardmore but that's probably not what you're after. :)

I think the control for the lever flaps found in Cherokees, Tomahawks, tailwheel Cessnas and myriad other aeroplanes is called a Johnson bar too isn't it?
