    Yes, it's very good, and gives you more opportunities. And that includes useful experiences posted here.

    I'd like to think you were right and I wish you were, but I suspect that there would be things for Section S to look at, like the different engine mount, firewall config, and a few other things. When...

    Again, beg to differ, all of the EU has a common standard for paragliders, which are also Annex I but it had to be negotiated. And it's voluntary, as there is no real money in regulating the cheapest...

    Depends on the regime in place, I'm left with the impression that the LAA aren't keen on upgrades but the vibe from the BMAA is that it might be possible. Skyranger might be good for 560, similar for...

    Can you identify the shackle in order to get an easy ride through the orphan system?

    Yes, because these aircraft and licensing for them are Annex II about to become or now Annex I, they are outside EU regulation.

    It's therefore up to the individual countries to decide how to...

    IIRC Savannahs in the UK are only Jab powered. Maybe a factor in purchase.

    They sell very quickly on AFORS when advertised at the right price, so if you're waiting for the sellers to come to you, you may be waiting for a fair old while.

    I think it's P&M convention on batten profiles to number the battens from the root to the tip with ascending numbers.

    If it got withdrawn the law would be almost unenforceable. Bit like every drone having a registration.

    It's great when pilots post their experiences of trial flights or learning in a sister discipline. Probably easier when those sister disciplines are under the same umbrella.

    Thanks for posting...

    No, they are rather different. Lower landing speeds, and different way of handling. You seem to want to categorise everything as higher/lower. It's not that simple. If you want to fly something...

    It makes the point that the question is highly theoretical, and not a practical way to proceed. We could now head into a long discussion about Boyles' Law, Charles' Law and thermodynamics, but it...

    This is not about cross over between types of flying, it is about training and skills. If you point out that wing loading makes a big difference to how an aircraft flies then when moving from high to...

    If you have a radio, and are in the UK, jump onto a Volmet frequency or listen in to your local airfield. They will give a QNH. Copy it.

    Given that the two closest examples of SSDR and sub 70 I've flown come from the same wing and the same trike, with adjustments (FoxCub & Peabee), I'm not seeing the justification for this statement. ...
