Totally agree with you Bob on your last comment. If a web site cannot provide me with simple but vital information which is easy to find then I have no interest in browsing that site. The whole point of a web site is the get the customer interested...to make them want to hand over their money right ...

My advice, Loose the dream now, start thinking realistically, you will save yourself a bucket load of money and dashed hopes, it may also prevent you from getting piles and a bad back when you older. Don't bother joining the masive massive other list of wannabies who most will never make it in the ...

If you buy a book called the PPL Confuser there is sample questions in that.

However it is possible...only if 1. plane never goes tech. 2. you dont take a day off. 3. you are on top of your game when it comes to the exams. 4. No bad weather....

The first night I had to stay in a motel. It was spring break when I was there, all motels/hotels were...

However I would not recommend them for PPL training or hour building. They are too commercially/professionally orientated and you will not get prio...
