It's the position and order of notes in a stave ( 5 lines and 4 spaces ) in written music.

Solo'd on the cadet 111 and flew in the barge as did many. Still fly in a Barge occasionally but the pre flights are now CBSIFTCB. Gliding has now overtaken my modelling interests.

  Bit like driving, but only brake is called a stall  %)  and if it rains whilst in both forementioned gliders, it's like needles in yer eyes.

  Last flight I had was 45knots on ASI, - - - -  flying backwards.

Martin

Gliding : have a look at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIsd2vxokyc&list=TLXKUujmPeYbiNZhgIkQow-Eh3tbl1yd9o

to give you an idea what gliding can be like.
 
The guy is using a cable launch (as opposed to being towed into the air by an aeroplane)

Points to listen out for ... 
Commands "Take up Slack" at about 1:18 and "All Out" at 1:54,
It is not 100% clear but I think the cable is released at about 2:40
finally the landing at around 5:35,

another video showing a cable launch from outside the cockpit . . .
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2Qh95I_YM0

In the cadets, 50 odd years ago, when I did my three solos and got my licence we used
cable launches all the time. I think nowadays the aero-towing is a lot more popular.

And the infamous "CABLE BREAK", and yes, it happened to me for real.
 
   If you want a bash Martin, most clubs do an experience flight cheaper than the "Extreme sports" offerings. Best time to enquire is through the week rather than weekends.
 
  Regards   Ian.
 
  Release was at 2.40, you can hear the click.

'er that was indoors got treated to a glider flight for her birthday, after ten minutes or so the pilot gave her the controls and sat back...she flew round for a bit, really enjoyed herself she said, then the pilot took over for the landing. She had two more flights that day...cost me a fortune.  <:(


Helis are great to fly in, Martin...I had a fun flight in a Jet Ranger at out our local air show with a lady pilot, by heck could she fly! She took off with the nose down at full chat, reminded me of the scene in 'Apocolypse Now' ..only wanted the music! She was one amazing pilot, not afraid of the thing at all.


It's not expensive, around 35 for a ten minute flight at these airshows...worth every penny.

My first flight in a helicopter was in a Whirlwind. We were on an exercise and being winched in. As usual I was tail end charlie and as my feet left the ground the pilot decided to move off over the north sea. Wonderful experience, not, being 50 ft over the north sea dangling 20 ft below a helicopter with ill fitting combat suit trousers slowly descending  8) Probably wouldn't happen today with elf n safety.


My last two flights were 18 months ago over Niagara falls and the Canadian Rockies, altogether different experience.

Flying at 1000 feet over Cornwall in the back of a Royal Navy Merlin with the main door wide open - incredible!!


I have also flown in the navigator's seat in a Lynx - all you need is a son in the Fleet Air Arm......

I spent my last cople of years as  observer in the army  back in the 60's  we had Bell Augusta Souisxs a later version of the ones in Mash  a goldfish bowl attached to a meccano set .  Often flew with the doors off and in the stretcher taking photos with a  Polaroid very High Tech. You aint lived till you experience a Torque turn  where you climb and then  cut the  tail (Anti Torque ) rotor she  just flips round on the spot from the ground it looks like it has looped the loop in the air Wow . Marshalling was also something' we could often back them into woodland  ah those were the days

'er indoors bought me a gliding lesson last year ............ Cable launch ..... Proper Rush. Seemed like one minute we were sat on the runway ........ Then vertical, at a rush, lots of noise ..... loved it.
 
Helicopters ??? ......... Depends on the pilot. I did a few filights when I worked in Africa. Some of those blokes were "not right" ...... I think they'd seen too many Vietnam war movies  {:-{
