    I think that a few of us in France are a bit too far east for your route, but the best of luck anyway.

    Dave, is there a map which shows your route through France in more detail ?
    The one on your website shows the whole route, and just a line down the middle of France.....
    The three most useless things in aviation:
    • The air above you.
    • The runway behind you.
    • The fuel in the bowser.


    Rule #1: Always tie your aircraft to the largest heaviest object available. The planet Earth meets these requirements and is readily available in all locations.
    Rule #2: The great thing about twin engined aircraft is, if one engine fails, the other engine always has just enough power to get you to the scene of the crash.

    Spokesy,
    As I am sure you are already aware I have organised your Egyptian Handling with G.A.S.E. and the Italian sector I believe is covered as well

    Was good catching up with you at Rufforth, shame I couldn't find my logo on your kite

    Do you already have the press coverage organised for France ?
    Is the French Federation aware of your flight ?

    P.S. If I'm around at the time, I will definitely be in Saumur to cheer you on.
