We have a thriving Facebook group, open and free to members and non-members alike, a good way to keep up to date with some of the flying trips our members make, the flying posts they are enjoying from others, and general light-hearted updates about flying.
For those who don’t want to join Facebook, but who still want to see what others who have are talking about, here are the most recent posts from our Facebook group:
Why I always yell “clear prop”, esp with my old 582 - see what can happen!
Crikey, had a few of these before now...
We can all empathise with this eg the first fire up after a carb balance or a decoke 😁
Reminds me of my old Blade 582 - bar in and just after a decoke...
Hi Guys. Sorry the website went down. My service provider webfusion broke it. Didn't have a backup and then insisted that it was down to me to fix it. Nice of them. Now Ian is putting the .com back up, and I have pointed the .co.uk to the .co...
Get your logbooks out folks! Ryanair to recruit 120 new pilots in the 'next week or two'
impressive pilot skills.
Great Flight this weekend to IOW. Some video with Chris Curtin. Thanks to Paul Oliver.
Mike Avison and John Boardman could do this at the end of Oxenhope 29 in their plane, if we took the wall down... 😉
What a bloody moron.
We should add these to our Fly Out destination potentials 😎
This looks interesting.
Reminds of the full throttle test on my old 582 just after I'd decoked it and balanced the carbs 😎
Heck of a landing this! Can see him "imagining the piece of string extending from the cockpit to the runway" 😎
Great flight down the Humber and up to the Beverley fly-in today, back along the coast to Scarborough. Lovely crystal clear blue sea, could have been the Maldives!
Useful for students. Or anyone.
These boys need to have a pop at Zero Five... 👊🏻
Similar effect from my old 582 on full choke when starting from cold... 💨
Likely didn't have the desired effect... 😳😂
Flying with Ian Harriman & Dean this week, watching the sun go down over the Dales and landing in the twilight - doesn't get much better!
Flyuk 2017 the Mersey and scotland
Nice flights & visit to my old Dad near Fadmoor today, partridge pie at the pub, very bumpy ride though. Made me realise there was another reason for sometimes coming straight in on final, to avoid unnerving yourself! When it's very gusty near hil...
Crucial reading folks... 😎
Not sure if people have seen this, seems like well worth a read https://www.facebook.com/flyermagazine/posts/1539726746047630
Nice plane! Would have been perfect had they strapped 582's to the wings instead... 😎
Anyone with a 582 will feel this 😎
Hi All, as you may know I m selling 1/2share of my quick 912. Around 500h (i ll have to check exactly!), permitted last month, serviced to the book. Mode S Transponder, electric trim, fly like a dream . I'm asking £7000 for half share. Monthly co...
Not flying related but I thought it was funny.
Great day out from Rufforth to caunton.
This gave me the willies when I watched this.😵
This is why I could never go more than 75% throttle with my old 582... 😎
Love one of these.
Great flight up to Northumberland yesterday with Paul Hill & Ian Harriman, calling in at Eshott before landing on a deserted beach near Lindisfarne. No one in sight. Magic!
Captain Ed at Beverley 😎
Excellent trip to fishburn in silky smooth air.
Hi Dave. May you have a safe and enlightening experience. From IAN and Julie here in India.
This is brilliant.
Awesome clip. Does anyone know what kind of trike that is.
Has the 1st hangar lock been changed recently. My key doesn't work any more and nor does Phil Harwood's.
A few photos of the Ruffians at bedlands gate and today with Paul hill
Just to help us get our "fix" on a dull winter day in the UK.
What is the record for speed vs power, this?
Hi, who manages the hangarage at Rufforth East please - just wondering if there is a vacancy? thanks
Worth keeping in mind - 'mags off' the first check!
Wishing you all a Happy Peaceful and Prosperous New Year Clear Skies
Looking forward to an opportunity to visit Rufforth Airfield and to meet members of York Flying club in the New Year. A lapsed PPL and glider pilot seeking flying adventures; Microlight, ultralight and gyrocopter; a new challenge for 2017. 👍🏻
Turn it up loud!
Think we should put a bid in for this. Would solve the question of how to get the run way cleared ahead of the next fly in!
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas Clear Skies 🙂
Happy Christmas all.
Happy Christmas everyone, may your stockings be filled with flying goodies and your tables be laid with just enough to not affect your next take off! See you in 2017....
This would be the next level for the Hangar 2 simulator... 😎
Bad news today, GSEEE failed its Brooks test and needs a new trailing edge! Will be out of action and pocket for ages 🙁
One for Michael Poole Those clever at electrics skip this post, you probably knew this anyway:- Got this all working and tested nicely, 4am woke up thinking 'Plonker'! Rigged a 40 Amp relay to feed a 75 Watt load, (carb heaters, vital) as the o...
Finest application of a 582 I've ever seen 👊🏻
No doubt Hangar 2 keeping a close eye on this development! 😀
5 years ago today since I bought GSEEE. Flown nearly 50,000 miles in it since and its as great to fly today as it was then 🙂 Here's to the next 5 years...
Flying from Hexham to Oxenhope
Flying to Hexam with Ian Harriman and Paul Hill.
Bit of Monday evening reading!
