Just been informed that the Aloquin Flight Centre has gone under, which is a shame as I had heard good things about the school itself when I was in Canada.
However, I am told, the good news is the Irish Cowboy division is also gone.

I think we're missing the biggest issue of all here.

Is the desk in question proper wooden or is it one of those cheap mdf with a veneered top jobs from the likes of Homebase or B&Q :?: :shock:

I have a few night hours under my belt which I did quite some time ago. It's great fun and puts your flying in a slightly different light :roll: Some people seem to fail to realise that a PPL is not just a licence to fly an aeroplane from A to B, but a licence to learn and build experience with.

My advice would be to try and get up with someone with some experience, just as a passenger in the right seat. Then get checked out somewhere, and go flying but bring someone experienced with you for the confidence boost for your first few trips. There's many people who I'm sure would give their rig...

I am only a low hour pilot but you can rest assured if the engine on my plane stops and a forced landing is imminent a Mayday call will most certainly be made. If I'm going down along with my passengers and there is a risk to us on the forced landing, which there is on any forced landing, not to men...

Just heard about this myself, fingers crossed the crew got out before it hit the ground. I know a couple of lads who fly these and hoping to God the crew are safe.

They are in Gatwick, not the airport..it's a 7 pound taxi fare to the CAA, although it is walkable :)

They have a ten working day turnaround so you can't walk in with the paperwork and walk out with the Licence. Having said that my last stuff was turned around in just over a w...
