I'll be moving to Wattisham in May. Looking for an SEP share in the area.

Any types considered, just seeing what's available. :thumleft:

Lucky you - One of God's chosen counties and I am sure you will love it here :D

There's not a lot about, certainly I'm not aware of anything particularly tasty at the moment. But please feel free to come and visit Old Buckenham once you are settled (and it's allowed).

@Highland Park

I presume Hotel Hotel is run on some kind of non-equity group? I never seem to see the same person flying it two days running.

(For the OP it's a 172)

Yes it is. They’ve produced some flyers that are on the counter in the radio room, but for obvious reasons I can’t get to one. If the OP is interested in a 172 (it’s an F172H), I can put him in touch with the group trustees....

It would be nice if the group checkout included some test on how to park it considerately in the hangar.

But as mentioned before, PA28 and C152/172 are easily available. 'Nice' aircraft are a bit less harder to come by.

Maybe Geoff should group the yellow Staggerwing?

So, we've covered lots of things that are available in south Norfolk but is there anything in the county @Adam_R was interested in?

Well there's always another PA28 in very Northern Suffolk. We await its appearance here with bated breath ;)

I will take you up on that offer. Tasty would be great, but it looks like it may have to be a Warrior in Norfolk :lol:

We often see WA going about its business. It's quite a large group, and the thing that is apparent to the outsider, is that all the guys flying it seem cheerful and chatty. They once loaned us a pair of lifejackets which saved us having to return home (40 minutes) and get ours out of the spare room. :wall:
