I shall be blogging my progress in a new blog,

Since last time I posted, so much has happened. Radio failures, a failure to get my log-book signed, necessitating a new GST, engine problems and finally, our skins failed the Betts test, so that we were grounded while expensive replacements were made.

Bought an Xair

Finally managed to get into my blog, since google changed something or other, making my password inoperable!

I do mean to update things just in case there really is anyone who does read this.

I have bought a half share in an Xair, fixed wing microlight and have had several wonderful evenings, recently, flying it with co-owner Richard.

 Since taking this shot Doug has fitted a PTT button to
 the top of the joystick, like a machinegun tit.

Next, must test fly the Q, before deciding whether to keep it or to keep the Quantum back in the air

Two permits, new medical form, insurance, transfer documents, blah blah blah...endless bureaucracy sorted out after a year grounded by pulmonary embolisms etc....
