It's been a while since I was active on the Flyer forums and in truth flying was taking more of a backseat for me even before Covid. Then I was diagnosed with bowel cancer (fortunately well on the road to full recovery), which finally made me pull the plug on flying. I sold my aircraft back in March and am on to other things.

I have the following items for sale:

[SOLD] 2 off David Clark H10-13.4 headsets. These were only ever used on the rare occasion that I took passengers who didn't have their own headsets and are in as new condition, complete with AFE cases.

[SOLD]1 off Bose AHX-32-03 headset. This was my main headset for many years and it shows inevitable signs of fair use wear and tear. Complete with case, spare microphone muffle and spare ear muffs it should be good for many years yet.

[SOLD] 1 off GoPro AAMIC-001 microphone adapter with PA90 interface cable. The combination permits recording of headset audio on your GoPro, or the PA90 can be used in its own with a smartphone.

I'm open to offers for the above. Student pilots and youngsters are likely to get preferential (= lower cost) treatment. Make your case!

Contact me via PM please.

Good to hear from you and good to hear you are on the road to recovery; I had a similar issue 4 years, 3 weeks and 5 days ago so know what you've gone through.

More a heads up that battling through is worth it. Hope you remain well!

Flying is now a lot less important to me than it once was but I did not pull the plug.
Thank you Frank. The good news is that they got the cancer before it spread (T3 N0 M0) so no chemotherapy, yippee! Every day is a little better and six weeks after surgery I am able to do almost everything apart from be out of range of a loo for too long. I remain very positive.

I don't really know for sure that I've quit flying completely but I'm certainly done with aircraft ownership. Who knows? When the airport, closed since March 2020, reopens I might get the urge... in someone else's aircraft!
