Without wanting topics that (selfishly) I would like, may I suggest the following as areas that might interest others as well, especially if my suggestion is treated as a ‘lead in’ to associated ideas.
Like the very successful Zoom last night, we need some who can talk, and demonstrate, with enthusiasm.

  • If I needed to change the AI in my six-pack, what should I go for: The new Garmin GI275 replacement or go completely Glass, and by whom, and in what steps?
  • If I wish to upgrade my Garmin 430W: Whom should I use, Garmin or Avidyne; and what box should I be looking at?
  • What is the best way for a ‘poor’ flyer (both in costs & abilities!) to get weather before take off; and whilst in the air?

Hope these comments might help.

As a possibility at the other end of the GA scale … in 2012 I did a “VFR in Europe” presentation at Shoreham. It was very well received, but ran over 2hrs. Some people wanted me to do it at some other GA watering holes e.g. Blackbushe but no way was I going to be driving around and doing that for free And none of the schools would promote an event like that (I am not an instructor, etc). Video is ideal for this sort of thing.

The PPT is here under Articles. So the material is all ready and I just need to run Zoom on a second device concurrently whose screen can be shared. Not a lot has changed for VFR flying in 8 years I am sure…

In the spirit of “go VFR” how about a session where someone with the right skills would run a mock prep session for a VFR flight from ZZZZ to, of course, Annecy LFLP? ZZZZ doesn’t have to be in the UK, so there is no fear of an inadvertent CAS bust ;) And yes, let’s assume intra-Schengen and intra-EU, so no need to discuss customs and immigration.

I’d be really interested in a personal owner pilot story.
Basically anything about buying and flying your plane.
Why did you buy the plane…how did it go so far?
@peter @emir
Maybe someone with a turboprop?

Okay, I could do this. I think it will be fun to talk about, because I did it 3 times and everytime when I bought a share of a plane or the plane itself as single owner, it was against all rules. So the story won‘t be too long, but might be a real contrast to maybe @Emir‘s.

That would be a very interesting topic eddPeter.

Second that. Would be very interesting to hear.

So it seems that there is some interest. @peter and @Emir what do you think about a session run by the three of us. I will start with the unprofessional way how to buy and why, followed by you @Peter with the professional approach of someone who understands the technical aspects of an aircraft and then @Emir because of your twin. If everybody of us will stick to 20 minutes it might be interesting and fun for the others.

I was totally unprofessional when I got mine in 2002 I just got lucky by getting a relatively high performance type which made some great trips much easier.

The idea sounds good to me.
