|Hi. I’m John,
I joined the club soon after it started. I took
the RAE at Oldham ARC in December 1992, licensed from January 1993.
Also a member of the Oldham
Radio club, RAYNET,
the local Repeater
Group and the QRPclub.
Other interests are photography, flying, motor sport
and messing about with computers.
|Here's a picture
of 'my' aircraft, taken at Tatenhill airfield one fine Saturday last year.
GBCCF is a Piper Cherokee Archer, PA28/180. It
is powered by a 180bhp horizontally opposed four cylinder air cooled engine
by Lycoming. It has a maximum cruising speed of 148 mph.
|It is actually owned
by my good friend of some 40 years, Ian Buchan, and is based at Manchester
|An interesting flight link is www.theflightzone.co.uk
I am also a member of the
Institute of Advanced Motorists since passing the test in 1977 and
have acted as an observer (unpaid volunteer instructor) until 1996. I'm
also a gold badge holder of the Rospa
Advanced Drivers Association.
Anyone wanting to improve their driving and lower
their insurance premiums by passing either or both of these tests can contact
me or go direct to the relevant web sites
Here I am at Ringway shortly before take-off.
