    Cool Complete n00b saying hello, first hovercraft arrives tomorrow!

    Morning all, just to say hello, complete new boy here, never ridden/driven/piloted a hovercraft but my impulse buy arrives tomorrow and I'm very excited!

    Been looking in to hovercraft for many years but at last I have taken the plunge so I'll be joining up, looking for advice, help and flying buddies.

    Based just outside York, is anyone else in the area?

    Things to sort out: learn how to fly a hovercraft, get some TP liability insurance, get a tow bar, clean out the garage ready for the new arrival. That seems to be in reverse order ...

    Regards,
    Ed

    Arr an air of mystery! You've bought an SRN4 haven't you!!!!

    Where, outside York, are you?

    I am near Sheffield and have got a "pass" to launch my cruiser at the Humber Bridge with Humber Rescue.

    Is it a racer or a cruiser you have bought?

    Hi Brian, just 'near York' in the same way as you are 'near Sheff' I'm keeping a bit of a low profile at the moment (in the public forum).

    Yes it's an SRN4! OK, no it isn't, but it IS a cruiser ...

    Humber Bridge sounds fun. Mine won't be coming out to play for some time, much to learn.

    Cheers,
    Ed

    The Humber is probably the nearest to me which is how Gary "Firth" introduced me to this site, which is run by "Humber Rescue".

    My middle Sister also lives in Mkt Weighton.

    And I learnt to fly at Humberside whilst with the RAF.

    And I was a founder member of The Lincolnshire Land-Rover Club.
