After the lull in November, last month saw the sale of two complete balloons, two envelopes and several bottom ends. Zebedee has had a run of sales on used quick releases (only new ones in stock at present) and drop lines (still more to go ….!)
New for January is a Staffordshire 2.5m trailer and an old but complete T&C bottom end stored in France. Stuart Seager is offering his Champagne Flights rides business for sale – with or without equipment – see Business Opportunities. His area of operation to the North and Northwest of London.
Laura Durcan reminds us that her Altitude Insurance offer listed last month runs to the end of January.
This month we have slightly revamped our Zebedee’s Baskets box in response to a growing requirement for EASA Form Ones with second hand equipment. The old ‘C of A’ column has been replaced by ‘Form One’ with a ‘Y’ indicating the basket can be supplied with a form if needed and the ‘N’ indicating that it can’t so it is more suited to Annexe II or a home outside EASA-land or even a new life as a non flyer.
The Icicle Refrozen Meet is nearly upon us, with a considerably better weather forecast than the 2016 event. We will be there!
