NFC ATPL Theory

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have any reviews on NFC's modular ATPL theory course?

Im torn between them at Bristol Ground School but only because BGS pass rate is so high and I can find any info on NFC pass rates or student reviews.

Thanks in advance,

Flying in South Africa

Hi,

Anyone have any views on doing my CPL in South Africa? Worth the hassle of the conversion?

I have a chance to stay as a Conservation Volunteer while doing my CPL, so its will be rural flying. Is that good to have for experience?

Ill have my PPL by the time I go.

Thanks

Mike

Worth getting my PPL exams rechecked?

Hi All,

I recently pass 3 of my 4 PPL exams.

Is it worth getting the failed exams rechecked? Or are the IAA usually spot on with these things?

Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks :D
