G-MZDA at Full Sutton


After many years of looking longingly at every plane that flew by, I took the plunge in 2006  and started flying lessons at Baxby Airsports Club. For several reasons it took almost two years before I got my licence, by which time I had bought a share in “Delta-Alfa”.

Learning to fly has it’s highs & lows, and I’ve posted a description of the first lesson at The Day I Flew In Mountain Wave which was definitely a “high” in more ways than one. I’ll post some more memories as I get time.

On these pages I’ve tried to put a record of some of the flying books that I find inspiring & valuable. Latterly, under the pseudonym of “The Armchair Pilot” I’ve started writing longer reviews for the North Yorkshire Flying Club monthly newsletter, you’ll find some of them reproduced on this site.
