Continuing on from my previous lesson we went back out to the aircraft and completed a quick walk-around, checking the fuel, oil and to make sure the aircraft hadn't accrued any damage on the previous flight, despite flying the aircraft about 30-40 minutes prior, the checklist was followed to the letter to make sure nothing … Continue reading 1st Exam, Double Lesson & Circuits – Part 2
Im going to start off by saying, I PASSED MY AIR LAW EXAM! I also passed it with no wrong answers, 16 out of 16 correct, something that I am extremely happy with. I'll go more in-depth in another post as to how I am revising and studying my theory exams. I arrived at the … Continue reading 1st Exam, Double Lesson & Circuits – Part 1
I got my Class 2 Medical certificate and the process to get it.
First lesson of the new year - lets just say things didn't go quite as well as we had hoped! I got a phone call quite early in the day asking me to come in earlier for my lesson as the weather was going to play a massive part in the days flying schedule. Having … Continue reading Lesson 5 – Stuck in a Rut!
This lesson was postponed, due to the weather, on my original day and was moved to the next day, which brought better weather compared to the previous day.

This was to make … Continue reading Third Lesson – Climbing and Descending
First - apologies for this post being a day late, this is due to the fact I didn't have the time to get it written up because of a family get together. I'll always try to get a post written up over the weekend and post it on one of the two days, unless my … Continue reading My Second Lesson
As I mentioned in my previous post, I sadly had to re-arrange my first proper lesson due to the low cloud and visibility - much to my annoyance the day before and the day after were both really good days - the new lesson was booked for Tuesday afternoon. Having woken up and checked the … Continue reading My First Proper Lesson!
Having been watching the weather for a couple of days now on the run up to my first flying lesson I was hopeful of some good weather. The past few days have seems some mixed weather in the UK, cold nights, foggy mornings, clear skies and cloud, all over the space of a couple of … Continue reading Not the Post I Was Expecting to Post!
