Nearly there with the flying. For me to legally fly in France I now have to have French 'brevet' which is not a problem as it merely involves a short flying test. But for me to do that I have to have some time with the instructor at Castellones who only flies at weekends because it's not his main job. And would you believe it, the weather just has not been cooperating - he and I originally said that we'd knock it off in January and here we are nearly in May. It's either been wind or rain or if neither, a water-logged airfield. My Dutch friend Victor who's retiring down here soon with his wife to a lovely house they've owned for several years is highly frustrated because he's in the middle of his training at Castellones and for the time being is only able to get down for a few weeks at a time and just can't get enough time in. Weather's the old problem in the UK but I'm surprised that we should be suffering the same here, but life pulls some funny tricks, doesn't it. But no matter, I've been busy on the house and the X-Air and who knows, at this rate I might even be able to do my test in that rather than the club's aircraft as it'll soon be ready to fly. I've just made a spanking new panel for it which I'm quite proud of and can't wait to start using
