  1. Unfortunately yesterday I lost permission on the field I had been using for the past 3 1/2 years. In hindsight I couldn't have expected it to last forever, the original landowner who gave me permission died 12 months ago and the remaining family are not now in the area. There was a frontage of houses across the busy road some distance away and I have been flying a lot recently. Complaints came in.. However the crushing realisation that I had nowhere to fly from (permission being sort for a shared site elsewhere) redoubled my efforts this morning to search for another. With some conce
