Re: Personal accident insurance for PPLs?

Hi dhardiman, You are quite correct in what you state. We at Ultraflight reviewed it a couple of years ago & felt it was necessary to have PPA cover for all pilots, including those renting aircraft. We have cover for £150k. I'll find out the Insurers details if you want to contact them. Regards Brian

Re: your choice of SEP aircraft

Martins Originally, the microlight class was for designed for aircraft clearly definable as microlights, but the lines have become blurred with higher performance micros such as the Samba.

Re: your choice of SEP aircraft

Hi Martins,

The Samba XXL is a microlight, so any flying will not count towards hourbuilding. The >450kg variant is an option (Samba XLA). Capital cost is considerably higher than the Ce 152 but running costs are lower.

Is rental an option?

Re: Doubt!

Hi Mikey, If you're doing the Nav, it probably means that you have gone solo, so you have done the hardest & scariest part of the course. After a few flights, you'll learn the landmarks, get used to the map & be able to pick your whereabouts on the great canvas 2000' below you. Your instructor will ...

A shocking quote.

If an officer made a comment as such wholst acting as agent for a reputable company, there would be a complaint & subsequent investigation. Any chance this happening?
