There's a spare seat going in a 172 from Liverpool next sat. Hoping to do a decent run-around (5 airfields or so) if the weather's half decent.

Anyone who would like to come send me a pm

Long shot, I know, but any chance of 2 seats to Biggin on Tuesday morning? Share expenses, of course. Positioning a/c back to base.....

Seats always available from Lincoln, cost sharing. Modern fleet of 100% serviceable aircraft. I might be lying about the last bit. They all work after a fashion, no important parts will fall off.

Early Bird Catches the Worm?

Greetings all

I know its a fair way off but if anyone is planing flying into Aero Expo in May at Sywell and is based in or around the Greater Manchester area and would find an extra pair or hands, eyes or some extra cash handy then please get in touch. I am coming to the end of my circuits(so will be a lot further on by May) so wont drop your aircraft into the ground should you need sometime 'hands free'.

I also a a mate who if you fancied a landing elsewhere(Sheffield Area) would love to come along and more conversation/hands/cash will be forthcoming there to.

So hope to hear from anyone who may fit the above.

Cheers all

Southern Spain - Jerez - Malaga - Velez Malaga


Live in Southern Spain, looking for people to rent Cessnas 172 (I'm most familiar with this type) with and do flying trips. I have about 90 hours now. If you fly one way, and I the other, then we can share the cost. Nothing too adventureous, want CAVOK and basically good conditions and good conversation. And no "lets try to stall the plane" kind of stuff, safety first :-)

Look forward to any reply.

One seat from Sutton Bank to Sherburn for the UK bash in the Cub in return for a cup of tea on arrival, returning same day. Beer on return to the bank would be good......

Channel Islands or France

Anybody fancy a day trip to the Channel Islands or France maybe this Sunday? Thinking about planning a few trips seen as the weather is nice.

Will be departing from a farm strip in Wiltshire and probably have at least 4 spare seats including RHS if anybody wants a go at doing some of the flying, just asking for small fuel contributions.

Toronto / Oshawa

I'm a UK based PPL, about 90 hours in total. I'll be in Canada for a week in May, near Oshawa / Toronto and I'm keen to get a little bit of flying in.

In previous years I've hired aircraft and instructor for an hour and flown out of both Barrie and Buttonville.

Does anyone have any tips on where else I could hire from? I don't mind driving an hour or two out to get there. I may get the Transport Canada FLVC so I could fly on my own licence after a check out but given I'm only there for a week it's questionable whether it's worth it.

Alternatively, if anyone has a spare right hand seat and wants to take me up for an hour or two ill happily pay my way.

Most of my experience is Pa28 / Pa38 with a tiny bit of Ce172 but something different always adds to the fun.

Sherburn fly out.

Planning to fly Sherburn <-> Halfpenny Green on the club fly out scheduled for 14th. April.
I have a spare seat in an AT-3 so PM me if interested.
Prefer a pilot to share cost and flying but students welcome for some cross country experience.

RHS Flight Buddy / Entertainment

I live in Littlehampton and know Shoreham Airports setup quite well.
I'm a 38 year old keen flight enthusiast who's currently limited to online flight simming (I fly VATsim for VA assignments.)
Because my boss is tight, I'm married, have 2 kids and a mortgage, flying for real at present is pretty much out of the question.
If some or all of these variables improve / dissapear I may look to try and gain a PPL
may I offer the services of "spare seat entertainment"?
Ex forces, so i've got a story or two to tell.
I haven't been registered too long with PPRuNe so I'm not so sure of the format but you can PM me [email protected].co.uk
or i will just scan the forum for a while?
hope to hear from you soon.

I'm a PPL based out of EGTC (130hrs TT) and tend to fly every few weeks.

I'm hoping to increase the frequency in order to gain more experience and competence and would be keen on flying with others pilots to share the fun and costs.

Equally keen to help with RT & Nav (or to hold the camera!) if anyone has a spare RHS going on trips out of Cranfield.

I'm flying PA28's at the moment, but have experience on the DA40 and AA5's.

All the best.

I'm a young pilot with 250ish hours, flying out of Goodwood in a PA28. I fly most weekends throughout the summer to both new and old airfields. I often have a spare seat available.

If anyone is interested, student pilots, new PPLs or people who want to 'convoy', get in touch.
