    Hi Sal,

    Yes, it is a life-jacket. The reason I was wearing one (uninflated I might add!lol) was we had flown over the Channel - that was taken at Jersey Airport - and that was Dave's aerobatic plane, which is very tiny when you're seated inside, and had there been an engine failure over the Channel we wouldn't have been able to put our life-jackets on had we needed to ditch in the water. So Dave always made me wear it when we flew over the Channel. By the way, slightly off-topic, but to have one of those life-jackets reset after you've inlated one, costs an arm and leg! I'm not sure why, but I know it does.

    Of course, I never wore a life-jacket when we flew over the Channel in larger aircraft (though some people do) but with small aerobatic planes it's foolhardy not to wear one.

    Hi Richard/Pip,

    That picture is actually Butterfly Valley - just off Oludeniz. I can't remember taking that photo, but I think we must have taken it from up in Faralya.

    Hi Richard,

    I'm not sure of the camera model (I'm not at all technical) but I know it's a Sony. We actually have 3 cameras - two are Sony (one of which I cannot find - hence why we have two!) and I think we have a Kodak, too. I'm sure it's a Kodak. So I'm afraid I can't tell you which camera we used when taking the photo - in fact, I don't even remember taking the photo - but we've taken hundreds over the years so I can't remember each and every scene shot. Ertie's a much better photographer than I am - so I'd imagine he took that one. But I doubt he'll remember, either.

    I really need to be more organised and start dating and placing my photo albums. I have THOUSANDS of pictures and videos, and when I get a chance I'm going to upload them (and scan some older ones, too) I've been meaning to do it for yonks!

    Hi Pol,

    Oh no - I'm not talking about organising them on my PC! I'm talking about organising my proper albums and scanning them onto my PC. Some of my photo's are just normal pictures, but I no longer have the camera (lost it) so the only way to put them on here is to scan them onto my computer first. Same with some of my videos - they're on tape - so I need to transfer them to digital.

    My PC photo album is OK.

    I will get round to it eventually. Rolling Eyes

    Hi Strawbs, I just asked because being a professional photographer I can see that picture was taken with a different camera to the other pictures, and amateur photographers tend not to have more than one camera. You take great photo's you know!

    I'd love to see some more but you don't update daily like you say haha! No worries, in your own time, there's no rush with me I can promise you. If you need any help or guidance with your photo albums or advice on how take good shots I am always happy to oblige. I live in Kent and I think you're south too, so I'm not that far from you. It's no problem for me, that's what these sites are for, to get to know one another and make friends. That goes for everyone else on here too, just let me know if you need a hand.

    Sal




    Hi Sal,


    Firstly, you don't need to worry about your brother having to land on water (lol) all first lessons are cross country. Which airfield is he flying from? It won't make any difference - he'll still fly cross country - but I'm just curious as I may know it. Some airfields (most, actually) have grass strips for runways, while the larger ones (usually airports) have tarmac runways. Grass airfields can be quite bumpy, and if it's wet it can be a little difficult to come to a stop and sometimes you have to touch and go and come back in again. Having said that, flying in the winter is much nicer - the visibility is always better - and if there's no crosswinds it's a much smoother landing - and less bumpy flight. Your brother will feel the turbulance much more in a small plane - but that's normal and nothing to be worried about. What I can tell you is the FIRST flight you do is ALWAYS the very best one!

    Having said that, it does depend on the person. Some people adore it from the very first moment as soon as they take off, but occasionally a person can freak out and have a panic attack. That's fairly rare, but it can happen - even with those who have always dreamt about going up in a light aircraft. I remember Dave was never that keen on taking people up on a one-off pleasure flight in case they flew into a panic, and he'd have to turn around. One man had a flight booked for his birthday (that was a surprise gift for him, too) and as soon as they got up he froze and wouldn't let go of the yoke (that's the control column - like a steering wheel if you like) and in his panic he was pushing it forward. All planes are dual control, but Dave had to bash the man's arms so he would release his grip on the yoke. I'm just giving you the worst case scenarios - but it's better to be forewarned. BUT that is unusual - and I'm sure your brother will love his experience.

    There's no other tips I can give you really - you never fly the plane on your first flight - though you do sit in the captain's seat (on the left) and the instructor will let you have control when you're flying straight and level at about 3000 feet. You only hold the controls - you don't really fly it - but a good instructor should make you feel you have flown a little, and that's a massive thrill for most people.

    As far as safety is concerned, before EVERY flight the instructor (or pilot) will do a thorough check of the plane before you even get in it, and it really is thorough. It's almost like an MOT - you check every part of it - from the wings to checking the fuel tanks - and very importantly - a little nut on the tail (which is tiny) but you always, always check that! If there's a problem with that part - you do not take the plane out. And then once you're inside you have to go through a checklist together (you can't miss anything out as you tick off each check in your pre-flight checklist - and you both go through it together - unless you're flying solo) so you can be assured all checks will be done, and the plane will be safe to fly.

    That's all the boring stuff you have to do, really - but it's crucial.

    Regarding the landing gear not all planes have retractable - some are fixed. Small 2-seater Cessnas etc are fixed, but larger and more powerful ones have retractable gear. Twins always do, and twins are the best if you want to fly over the water or over a city (you can't fly over London in a single engine - it has to be a twin ) but your brother won't be going up in a twin on his first flight - but you can tell him all this, anyway. He'll be able to impress his instructor! Flying instructors love enthusiasts - I've noticed that. And if your brother takes to it he'll be hooked - I guarantee it! I became hooked! I love you It's a wonderful feeling of freedom flying up like a bird - there's nothing like it in the world. Gosh, I miss it.

    But I've done it - hundreds of times - and I don't need to anymore.

    Your brother will love it - I know he will.

    When I get the chance I'll upload my videos and pictures of when we flew - and when we did aerobatics in Dave's plane affraid I'll have a quick moosy on youtube to see if there's any first flights so you can get an idea what it's like - I can promise you it is safe and FANTASTIC. When I came down from my first first flight I was buzzing for days - so much so I booked another one 5 days later and signed up for a course! Razz If your brother loves it as much as I did - there'll be no stopping him - remember my words.

    Here you go, Sal.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCQoH4UFyaE

    I found this one from Biggin Hill where I used to fly - and this would be the worst scenario if the land gear didn't retract - and you can see it's no problem if it doesn't lower. I think this may be a practice run (you always go round so the tower can double check that it's down ) but looking at his altimemeter he was flying too low to do near-stalls (that's where the buzzer sounds) he was flying at only 1500 to 2000 feet - so I think it may have been a pretend emergency. It looked staged to me - bet the tower and fire guys were pissed off it was! Those fire guys are lovely, though.

    By the way, when you land, that buzzer sounds on touchdown so tell your brother to expect it. It happens every time. It can sound scary the first tme, but it's perfectly normal.

    Very quickly, let me know how long you think that runway is - you'll never guess by looking at it.

    Hi THD,

    No, it isn't as loud as that when you're flying - you wear headphones! The reason it sounds loud is that the microphone on the video wan't wearing any lol You wear headphones to talk to air traffic control, and the reason you couldn't hear the pilot talking was the sound of the engine drowned out his voice.

    When you've got the headphones on it's MUCH quieter.

    I'm busy today, but I'll try and upload my own vidoes on there soon - the ones where we're doing aerobatics are really exciting! It will give you a thrill just watching it.

    I'm waiting for Sal to pop back up! I sometimes wonder why I bother.........

    Maybe she's gone to find out how long the runway is at Biggin drunken

    Oh, slightly off-topic (again!) but in the link I put up of Biggin, the trees just before the runway actually hide a dual carriageway and all the lamposts are shorter than normal to allow for aircraft landing. But along those trees are some houses, and one woman bought a house there about 20 years ago - and then used to complain about the aircraft! Exclamation She'd take a note of the number of the plane, and then phone up to complain and say the plane was flying too low! Suspect She LOVED moaning! lol That's like buying a house by a railway bridge and complaining about the trains going past!
