Woolfy -- I think i will stick to hang-gliding -- much simpler control stick. I remember that i woznt much good at landings -- busted my left boot once -- did a big belly skid up to a cow once, lucky it woznt a bull koz i had lots of red on the "sail". Did a bit of solo-gliding in an old wood'n'canvas glider -- i remember dropping a big brown bag of chuck over the office where i worked, my extent of weapons training. madMac.

Funny thing, i am very scared of heights. madMac.
