I would just like to echo what MarBergi has said above.

I spent 6 weeks in PTC doing my Multi IR Conversion and had absolutely no problems with them. Never messed about with the schedule, aircraft in great condition and top class instructors.

Never a truer word spoken!

Have to say Bristol worked for me (91% average)

Some people like to do Aviation Exam too but its all personal choice at the end of the day.

How do you go about proving to the Revenue that you are self imployed if Im going to to be flying for Ryanair on a daily bases?

The reason I ask is that I've been asked to supply a company name (if I have one) for the invoice for the TR. I haven't set anything up yet. Just wondering how you guys approached this.

Thanks lads for the advice. I looked into the sole trader thing and my accountant advised against it as the revenue have copped onto this in Ryanair. I also have been onto the Bokloster place.
