For something which started out over three years ago as a private online diary, just to resolve arguments between Judith and me on how the weather was on such and such a day, it has grown a lot, and been huge fun for us to do. We always tried to give an honest account of the day (the flying, that is), and hope we achieved that. We also at some point decided to try to turn it into a useful resource for pilots, particularly with the podcasts (and later, webcasts) which have proved massively popular all over the world, with tens of thousands of downloads.  There are also various articles on flying, plus the site and comp live updates via a Twitter feed.

We have had a lot of support from people over the years, giving us feedback and encouraging messages, and, of course, lots of pilots were willing to share their time and expertise  in the podcasts – this has been much appreciated, by us, and by the thousands of readers of the blog. Together, we turned this into one of the best flying blogs around.

So, many thanks again, to all our readers and contributors. It wouldn’t have been the same without you.
