Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

I visited North London FLying School at Panshanger the other day. They are looking for full time instructors. Good pay. Check the threads on here about them and go have a look at the place with an open mind. Seems to be like Marmite...yuo'll love it or hate it.

eph6,

The Portsmouth Southampton area is really duff as there are no airfields closer than Goodwood and Bournemouth offering any flying training.
If you are IRI qualified, you could try CTC at bournemouth. Otherwise, Shoreham is about an hours drive from Portsmouth and there are a couple of schools there worth trying.

Thruxton and Old Sarum are also within commuting distance and I know Old Sarum have just got some new aircraft in anticipation of the summer rush for flight training! Worth a try.

If you fancy mixing NPPL microlight with a little bit of group A, Solent Flight at Lower Upham might be worth a try.

good luck

thanks opsdog

Appreciate the reply and I'll check them out. It really seems pretty quiet out there, all round. What a difference one year can make.
