We have two of them and neither one has ever flown.

There only appears to be two training routes for it, is that sufficient for me to get full TR once complete?
TR Granted, I added a few more TR routes for it. I think when I set it up the first time I had only 3 regular routes and 1 tr route, but added to it later, now there are a few more TR routes, all from lands end.
I see you have done the required 4 routes and the full rating is granted.

I forgot about the Twotter. Having flown Glasgow Barra both ways and Benbecula Barra when I was the only passenger, no wonder they dropped that leg, I wondered if we can have th Glasgow flights which they still fly. Barra and Tiree I think.

The routes are still there, but both Twotters are currently at Lands End.

G-RBLA was definitely a Loganair aircraft, so over the next week or so I will create a route from Birmingham to Glasgow and ferry that one up to Glasgow where it can be based for the islands flights.

I flew a PA28 into Barrra twice a couple of years ago, it wasn't easy identifying which beach to land on at first.

Joe, I have done all four training flights, request full TR please.

Already granted. There are already 'All Aircraft' routes that connect the northern and southern DHC-6 routes through Kemble so I did not create one, but some connecting routes between Birmingham and Glasgow is a reasonable thing to add.

My favourite bit of Barra Airport is the baggage collection point.

I will go for the TR. I will get the Ambassador back to EGNT then back to EGPF then sort out how I am going to do it.
