It's not that it's tough, it's really just a pass or fail I found. Got mine after a few hours, if you intend going on profesionaly then go for it before you start spending big money! Think about doing it after a few hours just to make sure you like the flying bit. They'll quickly check the tackle, d...

Knew I was missing something in my budget!! Wasn't trying to be anal or anything, was doing a few rough sums myself and that's what I came up with. I've heard nothing different than Class 1 Medical & PPL as requirements to start ATPLs alright. Michael747, did you get a good deal on the 40k loan?...

Thanks Viz,

I'm sure you'd make a good sales rep for them as a nixer! I've heard from a few people that they're well laid out alright, which helps when you have that much info.

Like the ATPL forum

This is one of the first things I did after my intro and would recommend it. It's better to know the situation from the get go instead of spending loads of money and then finding out that you can't be a pilot. The Mater Hospital are the only ones that do a Class 1 in Ireland, costs around ?605 and t...

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the info and well done on the first time pass, NFC would definatly be handier and your right in saying it's up to yourself, but would of course be interested if Bristol was much better. Any word on when/if Sigmar will start up it's ATPLs again?

Hi Viz,

How are you finding Bristol? Hearing good stories about it so far, was thinking of NFC's Oxford course but starting to think Bristol. Any help appreciated!

Was the Sigmar one known as Pan Aviation? Has anyone heard about the quality of NFC GS? Working it out roughly ; ?3521 for Bristol GS and 1 year Q Database access ?1000 for 40 nights accomadation @ ?25 a night ?90 return flights x 2 ?4611 Total (roughly) Around ?861 (roughly) more expensive than NFC...

This is true. I was thinking along the lines of people who live close enough to their FTO. For myself anyway, I live in Dublin so doing a course with NFC (something in the region of ?4k!) wouldn't cost me anything more in terms of accomadation and flights. So it wouldn't work out financially for me ...

Doubt there's 2, this has got to be the place, close to the a/p aswell which makes sense.

Just ordered my tickets yesterday, same story, should have them by the end of the month.

Hi Hupla, Did 2 static lines out of IPC, best experience I've ever had, seriously! Didn't have any freefall time but it's an experience having your legs dangling 2000ft above the ground then looking up hoping everything holds together. Say tandem would be some buzz as you get freefall time, only reg...

Hi JFH, If you did the Oxford course wouldn't you have to take into account flights & accomadation for the 2 x 2 week revision course and then the time you will be over there doing exams? I reckon you wouldn't end up with much of a saving compared to PTC, on the other hand NFC's costs a 'bit' mo...
