Might need to be careful that the structure matches the original forum to minimize issues importing it?

Besides that, hell yes for a Student Pilot area because that exactly where I am just now and being a curious sod always love to ask questions :ROFLMAO:

Thanks Vince :)

Reece was very slow/reluctant - actually, not fair to ascribe a motivation - so let's stick with slow - to respond on FB - although being fair he doesn't know me from the proverbial Adam :ROFLMAO:

Airfield cards is a much better platform for the fly in info, I have some custom code that lists events in order of the dates.

I see on the airfield cards site that is seems to be for you to enter your own flyins and events. The ones that I put up here are not ones that I have anything to do with other than those that I come across when seeking out things that may interest me. Others I find that may be of interest to other microlight pilots I put up for their information.
I find the airfield cards a great source of information, but I tend to go there for details of somewhere that I am already considering visiting.

I know what you mean, but learning the code to make it happen on there was a lot better than trying to learn it on this platform. There are lots of add ins for this forum software, but I am not prepared to throw money at it that I don’t have

If it involves extra cost and hassle then it is not worth it. I don't know if I can edit titles if so I put the date in the title to make an easier referance for folks to use and locate at a later date. Any new ones that I come across I will do that from the start.
Thanks for looking into it Vince.

I can certainly update the thread titles if you can't ginge, just tried a couple and my moderator permissions allow that, so I'm happy to sort the rest (y):)

The old forum had a section for offers for help around the country - must have been a total pain to set it all up, so rather than go through that again, are we hopeful of getting the original database integrated at some point?

For those of you who spent time in a light blue uniform, you might remember an article in "Air Clues" called "I learnt about flying from that".
It consisted of frank and honest reports from military aviators about incident and occurrences they had experienced and had learnt a lesson from - no names or consequences, just shared facts and findings.

I think this forum could be a good place to do likewise, just sharing experiences we learned a lesson from and feel it's worth sharing to hopefully stop others making the same errors. No criticism allowed - just thoughtful and observational comments.

I'm sure we've all got something worthwhile we could add.

The BMAA used to publish a list of people and their contact details from all over the UK who could help with supplying trailers or overnight hangarage should someone have a problem and have to land out but I don't think the list is still published or the reason it was removed, possibly GDPR?

I might be a ballache given the all the various different types, but I liked the aircraft specific category.

As a Quantum pilot and owner I could find the Quantum category and then flick through those threads to see if someone had already tackled a similar fix or had experienced a similar issue which I could then learn from their experience/mistakes and other pilot reviews of a solution(s)
