I wonder would Kevin consider a VFR Flight Guide website? It would be far more straightforward and easy to update than a book and he could fund it by charging subscriptions. I'd say lots of people would have no probs paying a tenner or so a year instead of the twenty or thirty euro once-off for up-t...

It what works out for you personally I suppose, so I would suggest that every student has a think about what works for them I find that a 15 minute chat and 45-55 minutes in the air worked best for me. I can give the lesson my full attention for about 50 minutes, but after that my mind starts wander...

Would I be correct in assuming that the introduction of the new half mil invalidates the existing one, making it not a legal map any more.

As suspected, the weather screwed me for the two lessons I had booked for friday and saturday and I am informed that our runway (like most of the country I suppose) is like a soggy sponge and won't take much more traffic.
