Fri, Mar 31, 2017

Ben Ringland passed his General Skills Test today (30th March 2017) in the school Thruster. The weather relented just long enough to do the test and the cloud stayed out of the way , so a happy Ben took full advantage and is pictured here looking quite pleased with himself next to the Thruster.…

The weather made Phelim Brady wait to finally achieve his First Solo Flight but eventually on 25th March the sun came out and the wind died down long enought for his First Solo.

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!
