In addition to the UK’s civil and military aerodromes, there are hundreds of smaller, grass airfields set up by private individuals (termed ‘farm strips’). If you own suitable land, it’s possible to set up your own – of course, planning restrictions and practical considerations apply. We outline some of them here. Naturally, we suggest you obtain professional advice before flying from your land – however, if you do own a suitable portion of real estate, you can operate your aircraft from it for up to 28 days per year without planning permission, providing it’s safe to do. If the usage exceeds that, then you’ll need to apply to your Local Authority for change of use permission. Airfields operating under the 28 day rule are classified as ‘unlicensed fields’. This isn’t to say they’re illegal, but rather that they haven’t been subject to a Civil Aviation Authority survey; which quantifies and assesses approach obstacles, runway surfaces & length, and so forth. Your farm strips is therefore likely to be more challenging to fly in and out of – but, as most farm strip flyers will tell you, therein lies the challenge!

Verschiedene Mikroprozessorschaltungen, die mit Atmels AVR-Controllern realisiert wurden - vom ATMEGA8 bis hin zum ATMEGA128. AVR ist eine 8-Bit-Mikrocontroller-Familie des Herstellers Atmel. Diese kleinen Prozessoren basieren auf der Harvard-Architektur und verfügen über eine einige KByte internen SRAM- und Flash-Speicher. Die Software der folgenden Projekte wurde größtenteils in C geschrieben und lässt sich mit dem AVR-GCC kompilieren.

When Aerofex showed off its "hoverbike" almost two years ago, the California firm received a flood of emails from people asking when they could buy one of their own. Now Aerofex has unveiled plans to begin selling a commercial model in 2017 for about US $85 000—but anyone eager for a head start on living the "Star Wars" dream can put down a preorder deposit of $5000 toward the final price.

The 2011 eruptions of Grímsvötn are a timeline of volcanic events at Grímsvötn, Iceland's most active volcano, which, although relatively small for volcanic eruptions, caused widespread disruption to air travel across Europe in May 2011. The last eruption of Grímsvötn was in 2004, with the previous most powerful eruption in 1873.
