Thanks to all those that came to see us at Flyer Live in December

We had a great show and met lots of C42 owners and many soon to be or very new owners

We will be on the Comco Ikarus stand at AERO Friedrichshafen 5-8th April

This is the 25 year anniversary show and is one the biggest GA aircraft exhibitions in the world with paragliders, single seat de-regulated, microlights though to 600kg LSA aircraft and beyond in 12 big halls packed with aircraft and flying goodies of all sorts. Well worth a visit.  Comco are on stand 301 in hall B1 and it would be great to see you there.


Our next show in the UK is the Microlight Fair at Popham on the 29-30th April, so hoping to see friends old and new at the show
