If 10% or more of your helicopter is US made, you will need an OFAC license to export it (even temporarily) to Iran. There's a general license (J-1) for fixed wing aircraft, but can't see an...

Almost all of my post PPL flying is with people I didn't know before I started training. You're right, most non-flying people will come along once or twice for a go, but aren't very interested, but...

Bit befuddled by this - I am asthmatic with a Class 2, but I have never been asked to do anything other than a peak flow (during medical with AME).

Exit from EU does not mandate exit from EASA - it's a separate entity. I've no doubt EU nations are obliged to belong to belong to EASA, but its membership includes at least four non-EU states...

I have no problem with phone PPR, but then I'm pretty low on experience and currency, so I prefer to hear about odd procedures and warnings on the ground first. To be fair, most PPR allows PPR by...

I found myself renting for a while from a club 75mins drive away (via the Dartford crossing - so often more!) and it really ate into my enthusiasm. Now sharing at a field 15mins drive away and loving...

I believe that a fair amount of networking goes on in BWPA groups, but I have no direct experience as I'm not one for "women-only" type groups (even if they do let in token men ;))

I just subscribed on the iPad, called up the Pilot subscription team and asked them to cancel the rest of my paper subscription. Had the refund cheque within a week.

It's all a matter of size - I would imagine a claims adjuster charges ~3k just to open a file, same again for a lawyer. On a typical UK spam can it's probably better commercial sense to just pay up...

AFAIK, in UK law you cannot enforce a contract that concerns an illegal act (that's why bookies break your legs instead of suing you).

There doesn't have to be anything specific in the policy; if...

Is there anyone attending with a spare seat from Essex/Nth Kent? I would love to attend but have recently lost my medical (hopefully temporarily, but unlikely to be fit by the bash date)?

The most interesting point for me in this and the previous thread, is that I don't recall any mention of this kind of issue in my training.

Common sense has always dictated to me that I don't...

I once was caught unprepared when a passenger felt sick - during a frantic search through my pockets for something suitable I found a (unused!) dog poo bag. Worked perfectly and had a tie top. :ok:
