Re: Tecnams

Problem exists between control stick and chair ! They take a little more flying then your average c172/pa28. Its easy to see how someone can get caught out in a x/wind ( particularly from the left ). Definitely not a forgiving machine on the ground.

Re: Effects of current economic crisis on GA?

I personally haven't been affected by it, still doing as much flying as I normally would.

I have however noticed the decline in GA activity at my local club. Also the decline of activity on 127.5 is noticeable, very little light aircraft activity.

Re: qualifing cross country

Must be 2 full stops, 1 leg of 75nm or more and 2 landings. I myself did Waterford - Shannon - Kilkenny - Waterford. You might be over complicating things for yourself if Baldonnel are active or if its a busy day in Weston. It's a pretty much given that it will be quiet in both Waterford and Shannon...

Re: Aerobatics lesson

You'll have great fun in the Super D. It's a real stick and rudder airplane. It gives a fantastic opportunity to learn aerobatics at a manageable ( and affordable ) pace.
