Transitioning to biomass fuels in general aviation

http://www.brdisolutions.com/pdfs/bcota/abstracts/26/z313.pdf Engine endurance tests showed considerably less wear on ethanol than on avgas.

Re: PPL Hourly Costs

Hmmmm, M747 :roll: Does anyone know whether or not any research or a type of audit of these costs across the GA community in Ireland? Here is my thinking on the cost issue: Tap into contact of any GA pilots who are working in the accounting/audit world - thinking big 4 here? Discuss the merits or ot...

Re: PPL Hourly Costs

Can anyone give me a rational explaination why the rate per hour for flying lessons in general have not reduced given the current climate? I looks to me like possible 'rigging' of prices - if proven, it's illegal activity.

Folks,

I'm sure this was unintentional but I posted to the NAVSRAv thread recently on this site seeking some sort of basic information regarding what is going on within NAVSRAv. I would have imagined it was a straightforward question to ask but I'm puzzled at the reply I received.

Hi ceatach, Why restrict and not share straigh forward information like a summary of the items on the agenda and conclusions of the meetings. This was always the case before now. It makes perfect sense to 'share' and 'involve' the wider community. You don't have to share word for word, who said what...
