  1. Hours

    Ok I have a question....so I'm going to be working on my glider licence shortly, and when it comes to hour requirements, does it count as hours on type (on the 22-3) or can I use built up civy time (blanik) towards it?

  7. Airliners.net anyone?

    I was just wondering if there were any members on CW who frequent or have a membership on airliners.net. It's a truly wonderful site for anybody who loves aviation. They have a few pictures of the Air Cadet Gliders too; with over a million photo's they'd have to have at least a few. The Aviation...
