Re: A Thousand Shay Fall

I've just finished reading this book and I totally agree. A Sterling effort from a Stirling pilot. Murray Peden's book gives a fantastic insight into EATS training in Canada. It has answered a lot of questions as to what went on at the various stages of training. It was also good to hear from a bomb...

Re: Canadian Sojourn

I've checked the Heritage museum website and unfortunately we'll be there a couple of days early for most of the flights. They start in June. Damn!!!

Re: ATS Lessons

Max the course at SFTS was divided into two sections. ITS (Initial Training Squadron ) covered basic work on Oxfords and then Ansons up to gaining their wings. ATS (Advanced Training Squadron ) then taught the finer points of flying on Ansons. Until I can work out the codes, I don't know what was co...

ATS Lessons

I'm currently typing up my uncle's log book. When I got to his ATS training at 6SFTS, the lessons were in code. While this was also done for his time at EFTS, a sheet with the lessons and codes was included. This is not the case for the ATS training. The codes are: A 1 to 4 B1, B1(P), B2, B3, B7 BP1...

Something you won't hear from a GPS in the UK

On our trip through Central Australia, the GPS piped up with -" At the next roundabout take the third exit in 647 kilometres ". Our trip lasted 6 weeks covering 5 states and doing 9500 Km. First time in a motorhome. Enjoyed it but don't know if we'd do it again. Main benefit was being able to visit ...

Re: Link Trainer

I've now come up with another problem. My list of exercises for the Link Trainer only go from 1 to 8. However, in EFTS my uncle has done Lessons 1 -14. What are each of the lessons?

Link Trainer

Can anyone help with the meaning of "P&F" when using a Link Trainer. The first two sessions my uncle did on the trainer were marked as "P&F" in his logbook. He the went through the series of lessons during his time at EFTS.
