As far as I'm aware- you get a PPL if you are just using fixed wing "light aircraft"- but a type rating on a Learjet 45 can't go down badly towards your future career. Heli Pilots in the Air Corps get a full PPL (H) liecence with night & instrument rating (most of the work done towards your CPL)...

It was the only book I ever read in only three; 4 hour reading sesions! (Sorry Michael...

No much can top that- but try this one: For The Sake Of ATC at this airport, I won't mention any names, they know who they are, and people who know me, know who they are. It all started off, by taxi-ing down the taxiway (as you do), then, while holding short on Runway 25, me and my instructor heard ...

Please Excuse me for asking- but it's my duty... Mark, I've noticed recently, there's been no "Historical Event" column? (Excluding Half Of The May Issue On Ryanair!). Has this been fazed out, or are you just putting it on temporary hold? - Oh By The Way, The May Issue Was Great! Yours Truly,

C150 is traditionally a 2 seater, right!

There's alot to be said for the gentleman/womans flying club - you save lifes, help the nation, meet famous people, use prop fighters (more than your average C172) and you'll never go to war- it's a great free ride, once you can put up with the training- and pass the mental exams- not for me though....

A terrible buy in the 80's, they should've only been used for early training- they really weren't up to the job.

Where abouts do you live, you might be closer to other schools other than those in the tw...
