I am a student PPL with 35 hours (all in a PA28). I have recently gone solo I know it was well above the norm but I got there in the end, lol . My instructor who was excellent has now left the flying club and I am now struggling to get up in the sky, so a spare seat anywhere in Yorkshire would be really appreciated. More than happy to share costs and buy the food
Hi All, This is a great post and the offers and replies are awesome. I haven't read all of the pages (too many during work hours hehe ) so i dont know if this has been brought up yet.
Is anyone able to offer this sort of thing in Australia? I'm living in Brisbane and am doing my CPL part time. I have 192 hours as of jan 08 (PA28,C172, C172RG, C182RG).
My problem is that by the time i scrape some money together to go flying again i forget a few things from the previous flight and then i feel as if i am not getting anywhere. It would be great if someone had a spare seat on weekends so i could sit in and learn and keep my mind active in the cockpit environment.
Lapsed lady PPL, early fifties, would love to find flying-friend(s) at Biggin Hill. I was very proud to get my licence in 1997 but it became increasingly difficult to find regular flying partners and I eventually stopped flying all together. I don't necessarily want to re-validate my licence, but I am keen to get back into the skies if only just for the sheer fun of it! Please contact me if you're an experienced pilot who would appreciate the company of a female ex-PPL.
I am currently starting out on my PPL at Wycombe Air Centre, early days but I am loving it! I am keen to get some more flying experience, so if anyone has a spare seat available out of Wycombe one weekend or even just wants to meet for a chat over a coffee let me know - I'm buying!
I have very recently started my training at Wycombe air park too, I hope to be able to move the gear up a notch this year depending on funds (recession permitting etc). Currently only 3 hours and getting over my air sickness (was fine the last 2 flights! ).
Am also a budding aviation photographer (mostly vintage stuff), if you know anyone who can fly in formation with you and would like some air to air shots for the wall at home give me a shout! Will do static work as well if you have an aircraft you would like photographing on the ground.
Some of my ground to air / static work can be found here.
Hello Everyone, I'm new to the forum but so far I have to say it is very addicting. Lots of great stuff on here.
A little background info of my self first.
I moved here from Canada to the UK in 2005 just after getting my PPL. In the first year I did get up flying at the Cheshire Flight school and had a successful checkout. I also managed to get up once out of Kemble Air Field that summer. Since then I've managed some flying on return trips to Canada. As you can appreciate the prices in the UK for aircraft rentals are dear compared to what I was accustomed to in Canada. Neither here nor there now as I'm enjoying my time here in the UK. But I've not done as much flying as I had hoped.
If anyone is flying about, has a spare seat and is looking for some company I'd appreciate the opportunity to get up. Generally weekends are good. And from time to time I can take a day off during the week for pre-planned longer legs. I live in the Swindon area in Wiltshire. Willing to travel up to an hour. Preferably looking to fly with experienced pilots to gain some of their knowledge and experience.

Reason: spelling mistake and broadening my area options
Hey I am doing mu hour building I trained at Cabair Denham, and have flown to Biggin Hill on a few occasions, If you want to sit in with me and buy me a cup of tea or help some towards the costs ring me on 07807464 521 863, or email me at email@example.com, I am at the moment flying from Elstree
Doing my hour building from Elstree, I did my PPL at Denham, looking at some one that may help out with the costs, went to Manchester Int and Liverpool the other day, done my night rating, looking for someone to fly with.
43 yr old Cannes based UK PPL/IMC 250hrs (expired) would love to fly again. Unfortunately, medical now unattainable. Would be happy to contribute (financially and workload) on flights from UK to S. France or the other way.
Can anyone offer anything to help? I have tried the local market here, but not much happening. Have tried the flight schools, but they only want to train (ie you need the medical first) or full charter - not my thing.
It was suggested to me that the best way to gain experience was to team up with another inexperienced PPL and share trips together, that way you can't rely on each other since you are both just as bad as each other
I think is sounds an excellent way to improve and gain more flying experience.
So if there is anyone from Old Sarum that also thinks it's a good idea and wants to team up with me, PM me. I did my PPL in the Bulldog and ideally would like to fly once a month as P1, and then once again as your passenger. So that in effect is flying every fortnight.
JP1 wish OS was nearer to me (although not ridiculously so, I', at Blackbushe) - it sounds like we have similar flying needs (restrictions?). Also aim to fly once a month, twice in the air would be great. I'm restricted to club Warrior III at the moment - anyone interested PM me too.
I have RHS available once/twice a week in Falke motorglider,cost sharing will be £10 each for an hours flying,I'm based in the York area,unfortunately max weight for passenger will be 14st,only got 45hp upfront,PM if interested,
