We are considering a Fly market where you can sell aircraft spares that you no longer need. Any takers?

If you need a block parking for flying clubs or aircraft types please book in advance so that we can reserve it for you. Kitplanes has taken the first block booking. :wink:
I am sure the FAKR's will also book their usual parking. :roll:
