    Here is an edited version of a 32 min flight I

    had on Sunday 31 May. It's the beginning of winter so the inversion layer prevented me from getting very high but even though I sunk out I managed to get back up in a thermal and landed back on top of the mountain. You'll see my friend Dave fly past in his Hang glider near the...

    Freedom

    I am an amateur hang glider pilot and I feel absolute joy and freedom when I fly, using the natural elements to soar like a bird is like nothing else that I have ever done in my life. Here is a quote which sums it up :"Once you have flown you will walk the earth with your eyes...

    I really loved aviation

    as long as I can remeber. Although I don't think I will be able to get a pilot license, I still am able to do the flying, in the virtual world! =D Aviation is just amazing, and a great achievement that as humans we have achieved. When ever an aircraft flies by, I find myself...

    Pilot Almost...

    I always dreamed it. Wanted to get into the Air Force but my eyes were too bad. I did take flying lessons through Civil Air Patrol but my head was not on straight and I quit before I learned how to land. (stupid I know, I was young). So, I can take you anywhere, but you'd have...

    My grandpa was a pilot.

    I've travelled by plane just a few times but loved it. I often see planes from where I live.

    I Guess It's In The Blood

    My dad was a Fleet Air Arm pilot in the closing year or two of WWII - he flew Fairey Barracudas (and won't hear a bad word said about them!). The war ended before he got an active posting. He's maintained his interest in all things aviation and I guess he passed it on to me...

    Who Needs Are Fancy Car?

    Well I am planning to learn to fly and become a pilot. I have been fascinated with aviation and flying since I was a child. My father and grandfather were both in the RCAF and I grew up on airbases. Most guys want a fast car if they win the lottery. Not me. If I win the lottery...

    So I go to the airport (Southend) with one of my work colleagues, we cheak out his light aircraft ( a Cherokee) and we get permission to take off etc. We departed and do a couple of circuits, and then we decided we will fly up the coast. Then suddenly we hear a choking noise...

    Could Aviation Be "Greened"?

    Do you have any ideas how aviation could reduce it's environmental "footprint"? Do you think aeroplane with electrical engine has a future? Jet engine with Hydrogen-fuel? Diesel engines with biodiesel? Electrical aeroplanes with solar-cells? Or will aviation have at all no future...

    The Beauty of Flight.

    To see it - to be it.  There are so many aspects of this ; the aircraft, the science, the art, the sound, the ideas, the sheer fascination with FLIGHT!

    The Clunk. The Plane That Started My Passion For Aviation

    The Clunk, Clunker, Lead Sled all interesting nicknames for this venerable aircraft. I remember when I was a little kid and my grandfather was still in the RCAF as an airframe tech. He took me to work with him one day and showed me around his work place. Now as I am older I...
