Re: Flight time limitations

I think you may be confusing JAA regulations with employment contracts, Michael747.
JAR-OPS limits the number of hours crew can fly to 900 hours in a 12 month period. Seperately an
individual employment contract may place a limit on the amount of time that their pilots can fly in a private capacity.

If you miss the date you will have to do a skills test; leave it too long and you will have to do a full flight test; leave it longer s...

Why don't you pal-up with a fellow PPLer. That way you can double the flight distance you can afford to fly, and your buddy will fly the return leg, rather flying on your own and only getting as far as the midlands before cost forces you to turn around.
