Hi Guys,

Hi Guys!

My names Ryan and Im located in trusty oldHertfordshire. Basically, I am currently making (using several approvedtechniques! ) a realeffort in acquiring as much and any right hand seat flying as humanly possible! I am absolutely prepared to travel most places, and I dont mind being dumpedin foreign climates should the opportunity of long distant flying experiencesbecome available - im happy to 'find my own way home' (Also, if anybody out there is planning a trip to the UK from overseas, i would even travel to you from the UK for the right hand seat with you back!) Basically, I would grabany opportunity of a right hand seat which you may have available...in anything:-)

My circumstances are I have recently qualified asa PPL, and am now enrolled on my ATPL Modular course with Bristol GS. I reallyneed as much flying time as possible, to log as either P1 or Co-Pilot. I amcurrently just short of 90 hours, and need to accrue as many as humanlypossible, however, I am self-funding my career, and the expense of it reallydoes make it hard!

I would really appreciate any future flying in the right seat, and am happy tomap read/navigate, handle the radios, sing - dance or just sit there and lookpretty ! - Its the experience I am after :-)

Anyway, it's nice to see that there are people out there who (like I will dowhen I am in a position to one day) offer opportunities to people in order toget experience :-)

Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon.

Ryan AKA Memphis_Bell

C150 from Goodwood.

Hi PPL holder and love flying when I can. Fly a C150 from GWC. If anyone would like to jump in the RHS when I fly, feel free to give me a shout.

Memphis, I don't want to depress you, but as a PPL flying a single pilot aircraft you can't log co-pilot. You can share a flight with part of the time for you and part for the other pilot, by arrangement. It might be hard to get people to make you a gift of their flying time......have you thought about a share in a cheap aircraft? Then you can fly a lot cheaper than rental. Good luck!

Pilot to Isle of Man Needed

Hi Guys,

Completly new to this but hopefully in the right section. Due to a hospital appointment of my partner we need to get to the isle of man in a bit of a hurry?

Have been told that if we where happy to cover fuel and landing costs somebody looking to gain hours may be illing to help.

Need to fly from Midlands area on Friday 11th May 2012 to Isle of Man. Doesnt HAVE to be Midlands but that gives us a bit more time. None of the airlines seem to go at the right time

Any help/ advice would be greatly received

Many Thanks

long shot

It' a long shot but if anyone is flying from Switzerland IFR to the UK in the next few days and has a spare seat do let me know.
I have a friend willing to pick me up from Bex but that can only happen if we get some VFR weaather!

Looking for seat in Devon


If anyone is flying in the Devon area I'd love to join them and hopefully make something regular. I'd of course be willing to contribute something towards expenses.

I'm a 26 year old aviation enthusiast looking for a spare seat to sit in. Sadly learning to fly is a pipe dream but that won't stop me getting in planes!

Please PM me.

7 hours into a PPL now, flying from Blackbushe. Any spare seats from any airfield within an hour in the car would be greatly appreciated. I'm 17 (18 next week), but keen and eager to learn I also run an aircraft valet business in the South East, so I will be sure to do you a good deal on a complete valet.

Im hoping for a spare seat if anyone is flying from Tatenhill, Midlands. Im currently saving so i can persue my dreams of doing my PPL, and i will be studying at Tatenhill.

Id like to fly from Tatenhill with anyone who is flying from there, even if its just a fun flight, hours building etc. I will obviously pay half towards the fuel and buy lunch

I can also fill up a spare seat if anyone is flying from East Midlands Airport as though i can easily drive to that airport from where i live in Lichfield.

If anyone is interested then please drop me a private message, i look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers, Sam.

Does anyone with a couple of spare seats fancy going down to Alderney in third or fourth week of August? Aurigny rather full at this comparatively late stage. Am based near Redhill and can also do Fairoaks, Blackbushe, Farnborough, Biggin Hill, Southampton, Headcorn, Shoreham or any farmstrip in Sussex, Surrey and West Kent. Will share costs; fuel is pretty cheap there anyway and we can give you a tour of the island if you would like one as have been going for some time.

I could be persuaded to swap a week's freebie at large house in the vineyards, with swimming pool, SW France, this summer, for a seat to AeroExpo. Last-minute request, but worth a shot PM if you're interested
