Just wondering about the experiences other have had in undertaking a trip across the water. I'm particularly wondering about any special paperwork, customs etc and how you managed with navigation - is it much different apart from getting used to charts - I'm only a new PPL so i won't be doing it next week or anything but something i'd definitely k=like to have simmering on the back burner.

I've done the UK three times in the past week. Most important is your GAR form for customs, up to date charts, knowledge of UK airspace and services they offer (Information only, Radar avisory, LARS etc) you can PM me if you need more info.
