Hi Monocock

Greetings from Carmarthen in South Wales! I'm afraid that I am not a young, nubile female student pilot but a 62 year male who has a general interest in aviation. Actually, I am 62 today! I spent 37 years of my life in the RAF as an Aircraft Fitter Weapons. I retired in 2004 with the rank of Warrant Officer. Spent many years on bomb disposal and saw action in Northern Ireland, Falklands, Gulf war 1. I got married for the first time at age 57 to Theresa who is a psychologist.

I obtained my PPL (Hot Air Baloon) in 1987 when attached to the Australian RAF. Did a lot of flying (or is it 'floating') there and took part in the 1988 Australian Bi-centennial across Australia Hot Air Balloon race. I came 43rd out of a field of 88..... quite respectable I suppose. A claim to fame is that I flew in Antarctica! (intentionally I hasten to add.... I didn't get lost!).

Had to give up my PPL in 1998 due to health issues.

I too enjoy good conversation. I am one of the old school I'm afraid.... 'hang em and flog em!' I vote conservative, am a royalist, am passionately British ( I stand for the National Anthem whenever it is played!) and listren to radio 4. I try to model myself on Basil Fawlty so that says it all!

I wouldn.t mind coming along on a trip with you when it suits. Just a 'jolly' really. Hope to hear from you.

Regards

Peter

CPL ME IR Pilot avaliable

Hi all,

If anyone would like a CPL ME/IR pilot to join them on a flight i would be more than happy.

Can take the stress of air traffic, flight planning and navigation away.

Local to Central South coast of UK, but will travel if an interesting flight comes up.

Cheers,

Rougueg

Hi there,

I'm not asking for a jumpseat as such, however, I hope you will allow me post still.

I live in surrey, nearest airfeilds are Biggin Hill, Redhill Aerodrome and Kenley Aerodrome (Gliding), I also study at the university of Chichester nearest airfields being Goodwood, Shoreham and lee on solent.

I am keen to volunteer/ help out in return for knowledge and experience basically. I've got a small amout of air time in military aircraft as I was in the ATC for 5 years achieving the rank of Flight Sergeant, so I'm not new to the industry. Being a student activities are hard to fund.

So, if anyone is nearby me and could use a little help around the hangar, drop a PM or so


Thanks

Interested in doing some flying

Hi Alister,

I'm based in London and would like to do some flying over the weekends. I am a 72hrs+ PPL and I would be interested to share a seat if you are available over the weekends.

Thanks,
Ajay

Hi Guys,

I’m based in South Wales but willing to travel if anybody wants me to fill their spare seat?

Although I am a student and can't afford to fund private flying at the moment, I am currently an instructor on a motor glider VGS and fly on a UAS but would like to experience something a bit different.

I have an NPPL which I gained via a number of scholarships combined with UAS and VGS time. I also just completed an AOPA basic aerobatics course, again via 2 bursaries, but can't fund any private flying due to being in University.

I have over 200 hours on various types but mainly Vigilant, Tutor and Firefly.

If anybody in the area would like somebody who is confident on the radio and very eager to have new flying experiences in all types please let me know.

Hello,

I'm in my early thirties, good sense of humour and I love dogs and walks in the countryside. Err, wrong forum?

Seriously though, my day job is flying a Boeing around Europe but I'm keen to get back into GA, so I'm more than happy to act as ballast for any East Anglian flying.
