Hello from The Flying Reporter
Before Oscar Romeo was grounded, Instructor James Lee & I flew to Deauville in France for lunch.
I have news from Oscar Romeo’s annual. The annual is mandatory maintenance to light aircraft, and involves a five day inspection.
A glider ditched in the sea off Beachy Head in East Sussex on Saturday 13 October 2018. Gary Ramsdale, a light aircraft pilot, flying overhead reported the emergency to the UK distress and diversion cell on 121.5, thereby ensuring that the Coastguard helicopter knew the precise location.
In May 2018 I joined three other aircraft on a five day tour of Europe, flying through France, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Germany and Belgium.
Would you know what to do, if you had to crash your aeroplane in the sea? The Flying Reporter joins other pilots on an extreme survival course to learn new safety skills.
In this mini series, I demonstrate some of the steps I follow, when preparing for a light general aviation flight in the UK.
