Thanks, that's very handy to know and no doubt I'll have the odd question from time to time (would of had a few when I was doing my A2 CofC) but i'll be sure to drop you a message next time some arise.

As i'm getting further and further into this in addition to the actual flying of the drone (which I can do very comfortably) I'm really enjoying learning all about other stuff like getting a good understanding of weather, ie, forecasts and patterns etc and also rules around aviation in general

No doubt you had your Betfair market screens next to your radar display. :)

Having watched every episode of Aircrash Investigation, I must be the leading aviation expert here.

No worries.

Was one of the best bits of the course for me... My wife finds it a little weird that I can name the clouds but i'm sure it gets her a little excited when I show her the 'altocumulus lenticularis' cloud - that's what I tell myself anyway!

Happy to help with airspace NOTAMs, restrictions etc but there are already a lot of useful tools online.

When I've been hiking, pre-pandemic, it seemed almost impossible to fly my drone pretty much anywhere! Even in the middle of nowhere there were signs warning that flying a drone was banned. A few YouTubers I follow for routes have to be very careful with their footage.

A new method of dealing with the drones is being tested:
