All the best to all starting out or about to see their hard work take to the air.

March NEWS

3 new starts again this month, 2 8’s and  a 3B, all good stuff. Lockdown restrictions easing at the end of the month, be safe getting back in the saddle if you haven’t been flying for a while. 



The UK’s 2nd RV14 has been cleared for flight, G-JGRV. Details in the projects section of the LAA Mag. Hope all goes to plan with the testing.

3 new starts this month as well, 2 7’s and  a 10, all good stuff. Let’s hope the lockdown restrictions ease in the near future so we can go flying again. 


Two new starts this month, a 7 and an 8. G-RVZZ has also been cleared for flight.

The new year has started much as the last ended, in lockdown with next to no flying allowed. Lets hope by the time we reach a year we can get back out to enjoy out toys again.
