Regarding Alderney, I wonder about doing a EuroGA fly-in there. Or the Scilly Isles for that matter. I wonder whether anybody from mainland Europe would go there? From the EU (non UK) there is just the Guernsey GAR form to do, plus obviously a flight plan.

Well, plus the Schengen immigration exit & entry on the EU (non UK) side :)
The Guernsey GAR form at Alderney, you can even fill it in on arrival on the spot.
Alderney gave me the bad surprise that they have Jet A1, but won’t sell me any.

Scilly Isles, the runway’s a bit shorter, hmmm. Will have to see if TODA is more than the runway.

So I need to go to Pontoise which has no customs any more. Never had to make a customs only stop before in France. Do you just land, pay the landing fee at say Calais and then go? Customs have never actually come when I have landed there before having filled out the declaration on their page.

Further tests (S95) show interesting and possibly expected results. Basically, both the S95 and the S7 produce more or less equally usable RAW images (meaning the dynamic range is similar, in good ...

This is the level 6 criterion. I test almost exclusively French pilots, of whom probably only 5% achieve a level 6, generally for reasons of structure and fluency rather than pronunciation. Howeve...

To Elba? Sure I can also bring some EuroGA t-shirts. The most important thing, I have found, with the leaflets is that they are left somewhere where people who go places / have a desire to broaden...
