8.33 ra­dios, in­fringe­ments, thanks, and more on non-glid­ing air cadets

This pheas­ant hopped onto my en­gine cowl­ing af­ter land­ing late one win­ter evening at Elm­sett air­field. He was unim­pressed that I had landed at what he clearly re­garded as his airstrip and would I please push off! Good mag as ever af­ter forty years of read­ing Pi­lot.

Aha! Just landed I see! WTF are you do­ing on my air­field? Were you in­vited? Do you have Prior Per­mis­sion from Pheas­ant Con­trol? Have you submitted a Gen­eral Avi­a­tion Re­port? Does HMRC know about your ar­rival? Did you get clear­ance from Euro­con­trol in Brus­sels? Do you have any il­le­gal im­mi­grants on board? This is just not good enough, you know. By the way I’ll drop all charges if you have a bucket of wheat for me. Roger Bell, by email
