    There's nothing wrong with going 3 axis (despite what some people would have you believe) But I think you may find a Jabiru a bit cramped for space
    The best time to learn to fly was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

    Its a shame we cant swap plane numbers around like cars ,i had a flex a few years ago and the reg was ...G-MYKS would have liked to keep it , what we can do is put a new number on our planes so if any name you want is not being used by another aircraft you can re register it to your plane

    G-KATE has already gone (was a helicopter)

    Oh well I don't think the other owners would have been too happy about the change

    Not yet - want to try an autogyro before making a decision (and then need to discuss with the boss).

    don't try it Stuart, the free wheeling rotor bearing is the same bearing as in a washing machine, when it stops as they do, your wing ceases to be a wing and becomes a guillotine blade instead. I've had a washing machine bearing collapse at home, my ruined washing was the result. Would hate to scrape you up out of a field

    What are you implying Katie
    Seriously though, i know what you mean, i cadged a flight in one last year, it was very uncomfortable.
    I agree with Mike , we should be able to transfer registrations.
    How do you see what are available,do you contact the CAA?
