I may have a spare seat for one this week (weather dependent) preferably for another pilot but I am happy to take anyone. It would be on a cost sharing basis (fuel only) which works out 15 per hour. My aircraft is a jodel 150a Mascaret and is based at Wickenby, nr Lincoln.

If the weather improves I may do a couple of hours around Lincolnshire or a trip to Duxford and back.

I am looking at training for a fATPL in the coming years and so it would be good to go flying with someone with commercial experience or currently undergoing training so I learn a thing or two about what lies ahead.

PM me if you are interested.

I can't promise anything as the weather seems to be conspiring against us this week!!!

Always hopeful - looking for flying in Sussex

I have 120 hours and have just come out of a syndicate - Tecnam Sierra. We are moving to Cornwall when our house sells, but in the meanwhile, I would like to do some flying and would be very generous re cost sharing as long as I get to log some P1 time. Really, I would like to learn a bit from someone more experienced as well. I know this is very optimistic, but if you don't ask, you don't get. I'm in Sussex, near Petworth, happy to drive up to about 50 miles.

Thanks for reading....Chris

Cost sharing

Hello all,

I'm a relatively low-hours PPL, but just finishing an IMC-rating. Fly out of north London and happy to split costs to build up hours.

Likewise, if anyone is looking for a well-travelled co-pilot, navigator, teaboy, jumps pilot, tow pilot, crop sprayer (on second thoughts, not sure if I'm qualified for that) or conversationalist I'm willing to get involved.

Glider pilot from E. Sussex with a shiny new NPPL(SLMG/SSEA) in the post. Will shortly be looking to build hours and experience around the South East coast.

Would be great to fly with more experienced pilots but happy to share costs with anyone in a similar position. PM if interested!

Low hours PPL looking to hour build from EGNF

My name is Luke and I am a low hours ppl, having recently passed in the summer of 2012. I fly from netherthorpe EGNF (Phoenix) and can rent both the 150 and 172 (just passed the check ride for this last week) from them.

I am looking to build more hours and experiences and share flying costs. Ideally it would be with someone more experienced but i dont mind.

A bit more about me: I am 23, doing a degree in mechanical engineering in sheffield and other than flying enjoy road biking and photography.

If you are interested, please PM me

I'm based a in North London and currently building hours. I'm looking to do some fairly long cross-country trips and maybe some flying on the continent. I mainly fly Warriors, but I am also checked out on C182 as this is better on longer trips. I have an IMC and I am currently working on my Night Rating

PM me if you're interested in cost sharing etc, right hand seating etc

Hi, I am going to get instructors ratings soon.

I am planning to get CFI/CFII no later than the middle of coming Feb. However, due to personal reason, I have to build time pretty quickly so I am looking for a pilot to biuld hours with. I can fly anywhere in California. Once I get the ratings we can build hours both of P1 and P2 together. Anyone interested in pls PM me. Thank you.

I thought this kind of this was borderline not allowed or failing that super duper cheeky!

I'm based in Hertfordshire (near Harpenden) and looking for any time in the air, whether I'm in the back seat, front seat, strapped underneath as ballast, wing walking - anything as long as I'm not stuck on the ground craning my neck and blinking in the sun to see what's going over my head and thinking "Hmph....lucky %$%@"

Will pay Avgas, Landing Fees, lunch, maybe even a pint.

As stated elsewhere on these forums my other half is the proud owner of a 1984 Camaro Z28 with a 5L lump in it, so if you're into cars or just like noisy things then quite happy to take you out for a spin in that in return (can't let you drive it on the road though )

Happy with long hops, short hops, circuits and bumps, even flight planning.

I'm not completely green as in my formative years I was a cadet and flew 14hrs out of 5AEF at Cambridge with the RAF, so I've had some training from ex-fighter pilots, and I've got a good grasp of the basics - just don't ask me to say anything on the radio.

To cap it all off - I've got a huge arsenal of terrible terrible jokes, which I'm sure you will all find hilarious.

For example:

Why did the Mexican push his wife off a cliff? Tequila!


Why did the Mexican buy coal? Fajita!

(I could go on)

Relatively low hours FAA ppl, most of my airtime has been in San Francisco area, (most recently Hawaii) and have flown from White Waltham a couple of times.
