Good afternoon Chaps
Any recommendations for flying PPL training in the Reading area ? Preferably a centre than can administer CAA PPL written test etc. Any input welcome

White Waltham located approx 15 miles east of Reading along the M4. They teach the PPL syllabus to JAA standard.

I used to live in Reading and fly from White Waltham. Superb place, really nice people, good club atmosphere (used to go by bicycle if I expected a heavy night - good parties! Get lucky, a really nice girl gives you a lift home, otherwise you cycled home and Thames Valley Constabulary left you in peace). Also, a good place to keep a plane, do flour bombing, dawn patrols etc... Oh, and they were pretty good on the teaching front as well!
