PostForum: Torque, Chat, and Chill!   Posted: Mon Jul 26, 2010 7:33 pm   Subject: Cost of owning a R22

The landing area at Barnsdale Lodge is pretty small unless they can move the cattle out of the main field.

I seriously considered one a few years ago and did a couple of hours on one to try it out. I was actually very impressed with it but in the end I went the route most others do and bought an R22. The R ...

I have been in many aeroplane share groups over the last 30 years and I can honestly say that nobody has ever done the hours per year that they thought they would. About half is typical.

I learned on a school's machine then after I got my PPL I got fed up with having to drive an hour to the school every time I wanted to fly. So my flying hours gradually became less and less. I finally ...

Actually I am going to make local enquiries to find out which farmer owns the field next door, just the other side of the fence to the pad on the uphill side. I then plan to offer him a few quid to la ...
