Re: Are these planes still flying?

Eamon regular pops into Coonagh for cuppa and a chat in BJC. A nice little machine indeed. That is one of your list co...

Re: Water Contamination in Cessna Aircraft

On a recent trip to the US, while in an FBO, I saw a recently issued bulletin from Cessna stating that fuels containing ethanol should not be used in any Cessna aircraft -period! They stressed the risks of water contamination and carb icing that it brings.

Access to and from the terminal was easy though on Sunday morning we did run foul of an Aer Arann flight arriving and departing. Because the gro...

Re: End of an era

Ditto.

Will miss BFP upon which I had logged a lot of hours over the past seven years - including my second "first solo" in August 2003 (after a 17 break from flying).

As HUM says the Koliber is a good replacement with more more, greater range and get up and go.
