Jabbie pilots happily share aircraft. Houseghosts cannot share Heliwoereggbeaters?

Or don't you trust the other pilots? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :lol: :lol:

The Airspan guys did a fly in two years ago and man, can they organize!
It seems that Keith, Biggles and company did put in a lot of effort to secure a great FUN weekend =D>
The only spark missing are the ladies and gents with their entry forms!
Would be good to support them....a lot of effort to stage an event (na na na not a normal fly in/away) like this.
Hope to see you there!

I trust the piloots, just not so sure if I trust their machine.
It's more risky than flying Cirrus ;)

Trying to teach those coordinates to Easy Plan - and it puts the dot right on top of 'Ephraim Aviation Estate' - which it claims is 1380mx12m asphalt. Not at all like the description of Airspan. Have I done something wrong, or is this a glitch in the EasyPlan database?

Heisan the coordinates for Ephraim and Airspan are practically the same. Fly to Ephraim and you will be overhead Airspan (try both coordinates in Google earth, same airfield) but the runway is 03/21 and 890mtr gravel as per "Airspan " I don't think Ephraim was ever built (I could be wrong)

Cheers,Don.

Great, thanks. Hope to pop over for an hour or two, and watch the fun tomorrow.
