I was at Sabadell last october, the aerodrome was closed at that time following a crash. A training plane had collided with a building crane, erected without permission on the runway axis. That is to say, if I understood the Spanish info correctly - my control of Spanish is poor, and my Catalàn inex...

Fons have you carefully read the original message? the airline industry's exemption from paying Value Added Tax (VAT) on fuel should be scrapped, and says an additional fuel tax should be brought in I'll agree with you that extra taxes are unwanted. OTOH the VAT exemption seems unfair to me, I can a...

On a sidenote: the fuel for jet engines, commonly known as AvTur or JetA1 is sold free of VAT in Belgium and in most (all?) EEC countries. OTOH AvGas, the heavily leaded benzine mostly used in general aviation does carry VAT and is thus a lot more expensive. This is one of the arguments in favour of...

I hate taxes!!!!!! ;);) Well if you don't want road taxes, go live in a country with no roads worth paying tax for. The same goes for fire brigades, hospitals, and what not. Don't forget the availability of clean water, today it's self-evident and almost free, that can't last much longer. And if th...

Re: Hebt ge veel zwart geld, Jan?

Terzake: mij valt het op dat een gelijkaardige opmerking nooit gemaakt wordt over Egypte. Daar zijn er toch al verschillende aanslagen geweest op toeristische "doelwitten" met heel wat slachtoffers?

In all fairness we have to admit that other modes of transportation do pay VAT on their fuel so why shouldn't aviation? But I think the USA are great supporters of the aviation fuel tax exemption, they will surely discourage Europe from changing the current situation. Besides, if it really is VAT th...

That Catalina makes me regret I didn't come! Anyone knows its whereabouts? ISTR there's a Catalina based at Lelystad EHLE but that was in a quite different c/s..? Besides, this one is looking rather funny with them two big wheels but no nose-wheel - landing like this would be most unfortunate...

You meaning the new name for the SN/VEX merger remained secret until the Cameroon deal was secured? Sounds good! But what's the 90 days?

I agree on that one, I don't think everybody on this forum is familiar with al the ICAO codes. Thus, it would be userfriendly if this would indeed be possible. Yet, a far easier way of implementing this is a simple request to all members to mention the official name of the airport as well...anybody...

It seems you have less interest for general aviation, even so may I suggest you keep us posted about the situation of Sabadell airfield? It is very hard to find any info in English about the evolution there.
