Seat needed

Hi all,bit of a shot in the dark,but worth a try!
I need to get from the east (Hull ish) to the west (Hereford/Ledbury) tomorrow... Or even part of the way (Manchester ish)since public transport is completely useless.
110 hr ppl/night,lapsed but still useful,so more than willing to help and contribute towards a bit of fuel. Need to pick up car of all things.
Thanks in advance if you can help.

Hi There,
I am Italian and I have a ppl complex. I am coming to London 8-29 August 2011 and I will be available mostly during the week (or the full weekend of the 27-28 August).
I can offer to share the cost of the plane (please tell me that we share the piloting as well), some decent conversation, possibly a cofee when we touch down!
I would also welcome information about airfield around London (any but reacheable via public transport) where I may be able to self-hire myself an aeroplane.
Thank you!
There are plenty of places around London where you can hire. Where in London will you be staying?
I fly from Denham so PM me if that's of interest.

flying buddy from the South East


I qualified with my fATPL last year and have been trying to get some work flying but with no such luck (bad times). I am looking into getting flying again (good times) and would really appreciate it if someone fancied some company in their plane, just so i can get back into the swing of things before i go up with an instructor.

Ideally I would like to fly from Blackbushe or Fairoaks, being that these are my closet airports, I am happy pay for landing fees and food etc.

If you would like to help a fellow pilot and have the company PM please.

PLH-NQY September 2nd?

We are two aviation enthsiasts that collect UK airports and have tickets to fly EDI-PLH and PLH-NQY-DUB with Air Southwest (before that airline is history). However, the Royal Navy goes on leave every summer and closes their radar at HMS Drake which was an opportunity that Eastern Airways seized to close Plymouth earlier than planned. The result for us will be a no count at PLH, as we arrive from NQY by bus on the evening of September 1st and depart in the next morning by bus again to NQY.
We would still like to have a take-off and landing there, so if anyone could be of help and happens to be flying out PLH in the early morning of Friday September 2nd ...

Looking for a seat.

Hi everyone. I am a recent graduate from an FTO with a frozen ATPL. I'm looking for ways to keep flying and would be very grateful to anyone who would be willing to let me occupy a spare seat. I am happy to sit and enjoy the views, help out with r/t to leave you free to fly or anything else you'd like me to do. I am living in Oxfordshire so anyone going flying in this area, I would be very happy to hear from you.

Spare seats available next week and LAA rally

I have 5 spare seats available in a PA32 flying from a farmstrip near Bath/Bristol, happy to take anyone along for a small contribution towards fuel. Usually fly to destinations in UK, channel islands etc...

Doing a trip next Weds/Thurs, destination undecided, ideas welcome!

Hoping to go to the LAA rally at Sywell on Sunday 4th Sept and have spare seats then too.

Dunsfold - Monday 29 August - fly to Wings & Wheels

Finally managed to get a slot and have 2 seats available from Rochester to Dunsfold (in a 180HP 172). Have to go early and not allowed out until airshow is finished - so all day visit. By flying in to the show, admission is 10 each rather than 22 on the door. Anyone local enough that would like a seat pm me.

(No Red Arrows but Vulcan should be there!).

Seats Available Cessna 172 Blackpool

I fly a C172 and looking for someone to share costs either another ppl or student or individual. The cost are exceeding the enjoyment on your own and the next step is microlight flying which I do not want to do unless I have too. Well I am sure their are a few of us in the same boat so ideas, comments accepted.

Anyone off to Alderney sometime in late October or early November, there are 3 of us wanting to get over there without the hassle of Gatwick/Guernsey/Alderney. Anyone want a jolly over there, all costs paid? Even if it's only the out or inbound leg. Can fly from Redhill, Biggin Hill, Blackbushe, Fairoaks, Farnborough, Rochester, Shoreham, Washington yadda yadda yadda.

Europa test flight

Hi all. I'm currently doing my ppl (on circuits now). I'm looking to catch a ride in a Europa with a view to purchasing a monowheel in the future. I'm based in Orpington Kent, but fly out of Stapleford EGSG. Looking to see how it flies, what it's like, and have an interesting conversation, preferably with the builder. If anyone can help I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
