View Full Version : Any pilots looking for flatmates in Norwich?
16th Feb 2012, 21:08
This is a bit of a long shot, but I figured it was worth a try. I'll be moving to Norwich soon to take up an offshore flying job (out of Norwich airport), but due to my partner's job, she'll be unable to move up until the summer. We will therefore be retaining our main home near London for now, and I'm planning to find something low cost in Norwich for my on-duty times in the interim.
Are there any other pilots based in the area who would be interested in renting out a room or sharing a flat or similar? At this stage, it looks like I'm going to be sharing with strangers anyway, so it might as well be strangers I can talk shop with. Quiet, non-smoker, easy to live with, etc.

perhaps reveal your gender for those that are unaware :ok:

That rules out my ex's!

In case it makes any difference, I am of a feminine bent. But I can burp, fart, drink beer and play the banjo as necessary, if that helps.

A burping, farting, beer swilling, banjo playing bent female pilot? You belong in Africa, it is your calling, your destiny, your family is there......plus the beer is cheap and everything is bent!

Ah....Fair Whirls would be a match for you but I think she has departed the Bishop's turf.

Banjo skills are going to be very useful in NWI, you'll go far. Now, if you can master Dwile Flonking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwile_Flonking) you're set for life

Ah, Whirls and I know each other from way back; where did you think the banjo habit came from?
I'd heard Norfolk was a bit odd, but dwile flonking is the oddest I've heard so far. Which probably doesn't bode well.

Norwich has a decent Apple Store with a Genius Bar and they're not at all bad.
Saxonair at EGSH had both part time and full time pilots. A call to their Ops might put the word out for you. There used to be a crew room of sorts for Eastern and perhaps you could arrange to be at the airport at some time to coincide with one of their arrivals with a notice appendage request, crew room. Not sure if KLM have a room anymore but airside briefing might have a lead. Norwich is a back water, thank goodness, but at least the people there are relatively human although they labour an uphill fight against a most dreadful airport management. You'll love the security at NWI where bits of string are confiscated in case they could be used to tie up prisoners but 50 inch belts are not because they're apparel - apparently. Enjoy the fine city and all its benefits, many of which are to be seen in the shopping centres on Saturday mornings.
