I have travelled to Lithuania for 3 years, also Mons and Prague. All these events are massive fun and I have meet some really nice orginizers and pilots over the last 5 years.
I have preached abit about how UK pilots should travel more and now with new dates for Mons and Prague, and soon announced Lithuania I think, it should not be difficult for UK pilots to travel to gain rankings.
Being from Northern Ireland UK it is more expensive for me to travel to EIM Leeds than it is to Lithuania,Mons or Prague.
I really do hope that you can encourage a few UK pilots to attend some of these competitions. They will have the time of their lifes
I'm working on some of the guys!
Pehaps if I go as the old man some of the boys will come and hold my hand
