Brilliant news. A few days ago I placed an ad on AFORS (Aircraft For Sale web site) for hangar space or parking in Kent and got a call within a day or so from Bob at Linton near Maidstone. He invited me down to see the strip for myself and talk about it, which I did this morning.
Very cold, but although the snow mentioned in my previous post below did hit East and South Kent, it didn’t affect where I live or, luckily, Linton. No flying going on but got a warm welcome and a cup of coffee straight away, so a great start. We chewed the fat for a couple of hours or so and I had a look round. It’s just what I want – very informal, only a few aircraft there, not much by way of ‘facilities’ (which suits me fine), the sort of place where you get stuck in and help each other out. I liked it immediately and we ended up by shaking hands on a deal.
So I’ve now got a space, outside parking only initially, for MYRO as from March and can start making some plans. It’ll be a good place to finish assembling MYRO and get everything done that’s necessary to get it permitted and back into the air. I can actually make arrangements to get MYRO’s wings there more or less as soon as possible as there’s space enough for them in a hangar so they’ll be there ready for me to press on.
So much now to do, including finishing off getting my licence! But at least now I’ve got a way forward and some more clear targets to aim at. I can hardly wait 🙂
By the way – anyone know a good bank to rob 😉
Oh yeah – didn’t mention….. it’s a double celebration today actually because it’s also my birthday. Best one I’ve had for a while 😀
