I always thought the rotor was like a washing machine too! In Easterly wave at Talgarth climb rates of almost 2,000ft/min have been recorded by gliders, with sink and rotor to match. It could be...

I helped out at a 'Flying Evening' for Derby Scouts at Saltby Monday. I flew seven trips in the BGC Perkoz, six Scouts and one Leader, and the Puchaz did about the same. All the kids loved it - it...

I'm not sure I see the relevance of being at 2000ft and 6nm from the threshold in a Rallye. In fact, it seems like a very poor idea, as with slats out, flaps down and any sort of headwind you could...

I must second Piper.Classique. I've also got a reasonable amount of time in Rallyes, again usually aerotowing. Its one of the most benign aeroplanes ever built, which is why its sometimes referred to...

Another very valid point of the auto/manual car analogy is that anyone who can drive a manual car can drive an automatic. The inverse is definitely not true! Funnily enough I've recently written on...

Hi A&C, I think the MB Mk-17 seat is an option. The one I flew at the factory didn't have them, not sure if the RAF's do.

Well, I taxied it out, took it off flew it around for a bit, tried a few steep turns, rolls etc and then a couple of circuits so yes - I'd say I flew it. In fact the last landing was pretty good, if...

I flew a Vampire T.11 many years ago. The cockpit was an ergonomic nightmare, but what sticks in my memory is how poor the initial acceleration was. I was pushing the throttle hard against the stop...

Thanks Nipva. Yeah, I bet the Gnat was a BIG step up from a JP (have flown a StrikeMaster a couple of times).

Sorry Nipva, my bad - perhaps I didn't make myself clear. I deliberately didn't say 'view' but 'perspective'.
My point was I was looking at the two machines from having very little experience of...

To give an almost diametrically opposed perspective to Nipvas, I have about an hour in a Gnat and two hours in Hawks. After the second Hawk trip I honestly felt that I could have safely taken it...

Hi Treaders, from what I hear I don't think the RF-4 soars as nicely as the -14, but the -31 does.

Digressing slightly I was a little disappointed that no one on here had ever flown WT900, and...
