WOW!!! Can't ask for better than that!

I'm really getting into the idea of flying to the UK - I think my flying and confidence are to it but I really need to sharpen up my RT by the sounds of things.

Thanks to Pilot and Damienair for the replies. See you over the Irsih Sea!

Flying to the UK

Good afternoon boys and girls, I'm looking for advice on flying to the UK. I've had my licence now for about 18 months and am determined that this year I'm going to make use of it and fly to a destination in the UK.

The works extend weel beyond the footprint of the new terminal whether it be a materials delivery compound or a collection/drop-off point for labour; I would suggest that now would be a good time...

Hi WhiskeySection, I've trained from scratch with Ultraflight and have no complaints. The aircraft are well maintained with a technician on the premises full-time and i've never been stopped from flying because of a plane being grounded because of 'technical difficulties'. Availibility of aircraft h...

Even when a question is 'too 'general' could someone who knows the costs involved not state them and the type of aircrafdt to which they apply? At least then we'd all have a starting poin...

Zebedee, one more thing - not IF you get your PPL but WHEN

Happy flying

Thanks Michael, good to know. I'm not a new student - I have a few hours and hoping that i can use holidays from work early next year to 'fast-track' my PPL. I hope to do all my remaining hours in about 2-3 weeks and finish what's left over as many more weekends as it takes. I just don't want to spe...
