• Post checkout EGHH-LFRC

    by  • 10th July 2011

    We had a nice, almost uneventful flight from EGHH via KATHY and GARMI to LFRC. Flying with Garmin G1000 cockpit is a whole new experience comparing to regular “steam” gauges. Ivan flown the outbound leg and he landed on deserted LFRC about 4pm local, the only a/c on the ground was PA28 from flying...

    flightComputer Update

    by  • 29th June 2011

    Test your site for IPv6

    by  • 28th May 2011

    I’ve found a nice website  to use for testing IPv6 from where you are, as well as verifying IPv6 for your servers. Very useful to double check if your server firewall rules don’t cut if off. It’s http://ipv6-test.com/ , however I can’t see anywhere who is running that page.

    I’ve spent last Sunday travelling back to Bournemouth. Met my former PPL instructor Dean who is now working with BFC and we went back in the good old G-SLYN for BFC checkout and a refresher for me, as I haven’t flown since January. I really missed flying and it was a joy to do...
