Hello,

I'm new to PPG but have 350hours single engine aircraft experience and I also have some 750 parachute jumps. So picked up powered trike flying quite easily after 1 hour instruction. On the continent it's easy to find a field for FREE take-off and landing and I wanted to know if that's possible here - perhaps it's a closely guarded secret?

I live in Ascot (under the Heathrow TMA) and would like to find nearby sites.

Thank you and Happy flying.

HI Tobago,

I live in Bracknell, I'm afraid you need to travel west, to the Binfield area and almost to the M4 before you're clear of the Heathrow no fly.

I do know of a field in that area and once I've established a good relationship with the guy that owns it I'll share the info.

I'm not feeling quite as lonely in Bracknell anymore; I've met another guy from Bracknell and now you. A few more and we can start a club :D

Regards.

Ken.
