I'm definitely over the hump now - Aircraft Systems Knowledge 90%. 4 down and only 3 to go.

I also took a Tecnam from Basair for a fly yesterday - I can thoroughly recommend them. Aerodynamically clean, simple controls, GPS equipped, comfortable. Very nice. Although they are simple to fly, I think they would reward precision, and thus an excellent training aircraft. They also require a load of rudder, which is a good thing, IMHO.

My mate Carl is in London at the moment - pop on over and take a look as he visits the British Museum and sees the best bits of the Acropolis, then visits the Acropolis and sees the bits left over. He also ponders who has the right of way - a car, a trcuk, or a cow?

In other news, my licence has actually turned up! Yes, it only took five months (!) to arrive from the halls of bureaucracy, but I am finally legal, and strangely nonplussed.

Air Law today, passed 88%.

That would be impressive, except it's an open book test. I should have scored 100%. Some of the questions were a bit dodgy, though. It wasn't so much a case of picking the correct answer, as picking the MOST correct answer. Anyone who has sat the exam will agree with me on that one.
