Cape Wrath



Some great footage of Microlighting here. The mid-air refuelling isn't something we would normally do, but we might start having a go at that!

main programme here, but only available for a few more days

First Solo

Hi there,

everyone remembers their first time at most things - and flying solo is no different.

Gerard Murphy has been with us for a while and has had no luck with the weather over the winter. Every morning he was booked in it was too misty. And then there is the Man Utd match schedule....

A recent lesson on a great day was cancelled due to Man Utd playing Liverpool - but we wont go into that!

And so on the 18th March, a flying instructor was sitting in the back seat with nowt to do, greaser landings every time. Time to get out, with the big bonus being he brought himself and the aircraft back in one piece

Regards, Victor

Volcanic Ash Pictures

Bit late.....but here's some pictures of the week of the volcanic ash back in April/May 2010.

Ian Gregg and myself got clearance right through the middle of the Belfast control zone early evening. Unheard of to get this clearance at this time of day as the jets are usually ferrying commuters back to Belfast City Airport.

Great conditions, and all the jets were lined up with nowhere to go!

Regards, Victor
