Passed my skills test. Yippee!

Post by highflyer1000 »

Passed my skills test last Monday. The sky is the limit now. What is the best way to proceed. Group ownership, rent club aircraft, get ratings???? Any ideas from people who made the wrong and right choices?
A good landing is one you can walk away from, a great landing is one where you can use the aircraft again.

Congratulations on passing your test.

I was given a good piece of advice from Paddy Robinson after passing my test.

"You now have a licence to learn to fly use it carefully end enjoy it"

Congrats ! I wish you many happy hours of flying.

But it depends on what kind of flying you want to do.

Do you want to go touring with some mates for a booze up weekend in the channel islands or take a week away in france ?

Do you want to race around the skies tumbing and twisting doing aerobatics ? ( my favourite :D )

Do you want to potter around and go into short farmstrips and have tea and craic ?

Well if it's affordable flying you're looking for.

Have a look into the world of something like a Permit type. A jodel or something along the lines. Jodel's are reasonably cheap to maintain. They're a lovely aircraft to fly, and they give you the joys of mmastering a taildragger.

Yes, money pending - do all three!

Congrats on getting your PPL though. Whatever you do with it, I wish you safe flying.
The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no.

Keep it current!

Think of your local club. How many of the same faces do you see there every weekend. What about all the members who rarely fly?
