Edwin Calvin wins his Pilot's License

Sat, Sep 15, 2018

For Edwin Calvin it was a close run contest between finishing his private Airstrip on his farm and finishing his Flying Course for his Pilot’s License. Passing his GST on 15th September in G CGFZ at Ards Airport resolved that issue, but Edwin now needs to work full time on his JCB to get the strip ready for the arrival of his nice new National Private Pilots License.

Congratulations Edwin you will be amazed at how many new pilot friends that a Pilot with his own Airstrip acquires.

Not all Introductory flights are for the same reason.

Sat, Aug 25, 2018

People book their first Introductory fights for a number of reasons varying from wanting to learn to fly to just having a bit of fun. When this guy turned up today I placed him firmly in the ‘Bit of fun’ category

Tom McCrea passes General Skills test

Fri, Aug 3, 2018

It wasn’t a perfect day for flying on 3rd August 2018 but a bit of rain and the occasional sneaky low cloud didn’t deter Tom McCrea from completing his Flying Course and passing his final General Skills Test. Tom has planned ahead and last week bought a share in a beautiful Jabiru 450, so all he has to do is wait for his license to arrive from the CAA and then enjoy the rest of the summer playing with those sneaky clouds again. Congratulations Tom.

Tom McCrea's First Solo in a Microlight

Fri, Jul 6, 2018

Tom McCrea is an Economic Migrant fleeing Cessnania for a better life in Microlighterland after hearing that he could learn to fly at half the price in Microlighterland, and that it is more fun there as well. Tom was quickly welcomed in his new home and granted asylum. He has already proved that he will be a net contributor to his new homeland after flying his first solo in G CGFZ on 6th July 2018 after only a two hour conversion. Microlighterland continues to offer sanctuary to Cessnanians on a humanitarian basis and is proud of its record of alleviating the suffering of less fortunate Aviators. Congratulations Tom


Hi Ken,

I hope you’re keeping well!

Just wanted to let you know you can add one more to the list of Fast Jet pilots you have trained! Out of 19 students being streamed after elementary flying training, 6 of us were selected for fast jet! I definitely wouldn’t have been in that top 6 without the training you gave me back home, so many thanks once again! Still plenty of work ahead but glad it’s going in the direction I wanted!

I don’t start my next stage of training until the summer so going to put my NPPL to good use with the RAF Microlight Association in the meantime!

The trial lesson was great fun, flew the entire time, thanks Ken.
