New "Aircraft" section

Tb20 9

We have a new forum section called “Aircraft” – here

This is for aircraft type specific postings.

Since we already have a Non Certified section, I think that should remain specific to all non certified types so please keep the Aircraft section for certified types.

I have just spent a couple of hours of this wet xmas day moving suitable posts from Hangar Talk and Flying into the new section, going back about 2 years.

Greek Airports (being sold to FRAPORT in Germany)

I see speculation that the proposal by the Greek government will include

Selling off state assets including airports and ports

Reference

Obviously this is speculation at this stage. But I was wondering are most of the airports in Greece state owned, or most private? Obviously private ownership could have mixed blessings for GA. Less complaints of empty aprons being full, but perhaps a tighter focus on scheduled traffic at GA’s expense.

Hello everyone,

Just when I thought it was sad to see the lack of development and new things in the SEP industry, I ran into the Pipistel Panthera website and was really impressed by the design and the advertised specifications. Of course, the price will probably be just as impressive but still, a 200kts cruise speed for 10 gals an hours sounds too good to be true. And it probably is. What do you guys think ?

In fact if you look in ICAO Annex 1 Pilot holding a PPL may hold a class 2 medical and Class 3 medical is for Air Traffic Controller. I think this is creating a confusion with the class 3 of Part ...

An excellent idea. Should make meet-ups a lot easier.

This is just a suggestion. It adds context to many discussions to know roughly (at least which country) where the writer is located. In your Profile it is the Base Airport item. If you don't want t...

What is the cheapest port of entry for Greece now (flying VFR)? LGIR Heraklion?

During the past week we have had record low temperatures across Hungary and lots of precipitation. In the hilly/mountainous areas this translated into ca. 50 - 80 cm of snowfall at 500 - 1000 m AMS...

There are many, many inequalities and unfairnesses, and, as the owner of a big twin, I am at the receiving end of a disproportionate number of them of them. A lot of them are debatable. However, I...

I think you should make a point of hand flying for reasonable peroids of time, reasonably often, IFR and VFR. It is like any other skill. It is also enjoyable.

Tim, might it be that when you change pitch, i.e. descend without touching any of your levers the prop moves to a more coarse pitch to maintain RPM and that has an effect on your MP.
