Somewhere to go for lunch ..........

Re: ERRORS in the VFR Flight Guide.

That's good, jonkil, thanks. Looking at the map, Inishbofin and Cleggan are still sitting there uselessly, does anyone know whether any vote-hungry candidate might have promised to get them opened? It's even worse than some of the West of Scotland madness, to have two little airports that closed bef...

Re: ERRORS in the VFR Flight Guide.

A Garmin-uploadable waypoints database would be great, along with a pdf version. I appreciate this could however result in a wider distribution than Kevin might intend ....... :mrgreen:

Re: ERRORS in the VFR Flight Guide.

Kevin, could you change the indexing arrangement, I never managed to get the hang of it!

Great work.

Re: Mogas and Ethanol

I recently did a little test with Maxol petrol advertised as having 5% ethanol, and Esso regular unleaded. First I carefully did the test-tube procedure, adding petrol to about 10% water and shaking, then seeing whether the interface between the water and the petrol moved. Neither Maxol nor Esso tes...
