If it is at all possible I would love to accompany someone who wants to fill the right-hand seat on a PA-28 from Blackbushe or Fairoaks. Currently 15 hours into PPl. Can bring a flask of tea!!

PM me if interested please..

Hi guys and girls

Just joined as a member at Sherburn aero club, looking to meet other members and/or anyone that has a spare seat going there or at Leeds. Not bothered if its just an hour or a day out. Will share costs. Starting my PPL soon and any experience and/or words of advice is greatly appreciated.
To know a few people in the club would also help as i dont know anyone.

Hope to hear from you!

Hello all,

I'm an airline pilot and fly from LGW. I'm keen to get back into single engine flying at a club in the south east, maybe Redhill or Biggin, that has a good social scene too. I'm showing my lack of knowledge already I can see but i'm hoping you get the jist of what i'm looking for.

Many thanks in advance!

Good Evening guys.

I won't beat about the bush too much. I am a 16 year old that is a sergeant in my local ( Bournemouth) air training corps and i am going to be going on a gliding scholarship in the new year. I have about 10 hours on a Beechcraft Musketeer out in the States, about 3 hours PA 28 in the UK and about 12 hours Grob tutor with the cadet and 8 launches Gliding. Would be most greatful of ANY flights, jolly's or trips from Bournemouth-EGHH,Compton Abbas-EGHA or other smaller strips in Dorset Hants area. Can't contribute much, but willing to pay landing fee's, wash, push and help maintain.
Kind regards

Bristol/Gloucester/Kemble/Upfield farm

I have 2 maybe 3 seats available on saturday 15th December pretty much all day.

I will be lifting off from Upfield farm and having a general bimble about. Willing to drop in to any airfield in the above mentioned areas or near by to pick up joyriders, as long as you are willing to cop the landing fees.

Also willing to fly some decent legs if you are willing to share the fuel costs.

Cheap seats

Hi All,

If anyone has a spare seat in ANYTHING that flies and would like someone along for the company then please consider me!

I'm 29, ex military aircrew (Lynx Mk8) with 400 hours. I have an expired PPL, can't afford to fly these days and am missing getting airborne!

I'm in the Yorkshire area but can travel.

Willing to contribute of course, hard cash or beer, your choice!

I occasionally fly an Aztec from Elstree. Happy to sit in the R/H seat of whatever it is that you are flying....mostly.
Happy New Year to you !

I also fly a JP5 from North Weald. Anyone interested in a flight in the R/H seat in January? Be warned though....the seats are live.

Whirlygig.....feel like a trip down to North Weald ? I can introduce to you the most famous military rotary instructor of all time - a certain Sycamore !

Hi Mark,

I'm based in Lpool, not too far from Barton.
I might be looking to do some PA28 time from barton in next few months

Whats your arrangement with C172, do you just hire by the hour or do you have a share?

You can PM me if you want,

I'm Denham-based and my mounts alternate between Cirrus, chipmunk and PA28.
I've 200 hrs but my usage has dropped significantly in the last 12 months due to some cash consuming projects over-running somewhat.
I'm happy to accompany others from the area, especially in something exciting, but will also welcome the company of other pilots or enthusiasts as long as they're happy to contribute towards the costs.
Where should we go?

I like a laugh and don't like "anoraks".

Hello all, I am an aerospace technology student at univeristy of Hertfordshire. I have 50ish hours logged but no PPL/NPPL and looking for some right seat or any seat to get me back in a flying/thinking situation as I have been grounded since march last year due to getting type 1 diabetes. I plan to start working on my NPPL after 21st jan. Anyone willing to lift a home sick pilot back into the clouds?

Hi Karl, give it a bit of time mate for people to actually read your post.

A lot of people here fly for a living/spend a lot of time in the air so they may be away or busy for the time being.

Good things come to those who wait and all that......!
