Any pilots need some company

Hi I'm currently back learning to fly after a long stint away with the military. I'm based in Thurrock and was learning in a CTSW sports microlight. Unfortunately due to finances I wasn't able to start the learning process, but now I am thank god !. If there are any friendly pilots willing to give advice and maybe needing some company on fights I'd be really happy to tag along.

Many thanks

I am in Scotland and would appreciate any offer of a seat just flying around Scotland as I genuinely enjoyed my only flight on a small plane and want more

Fixed wing microlight student pilot with 20 hours

I'm a fixed wing microlight student flying out of Barton. Not gone solo yet. I was looking to see if anyone fancied taking me up in between my lessons :-)
Willing to share costs and even handle your RT calls if you like (and are feeling brave). Happy to sit in anything that's fixed wing - just looking to pick up some experience from any pilots out there.
PM me.

Cessna 340 Fairoaks to Cannes and back - frequently

During the summer months I fly between EGTF and LFMD two or three times per month, often solo. Usually willing to fly with an enthusiastic right seat buddy or pax with feet up in the back, in return for a fuel contribution.
Usually IFR direct, occasionally with a stop off en-route for lunch/fuel.

Glasgow / Ashaig lift required July 11th


I'm a HK resident and Philippine PPL holder. I'm heading up to Skye on the 11th of July to visit my father. I'd much rather fly up to Ashaig GA than take bus /train / drive. I am willing to cover all expenses whilst adhering to local regulations. Suggestions on a postcard pls.

Any helicopter pilots in the N. Wales, Shropshire, Cheshire, (Northern) Powys area looking for some company? I'm about to embark on PPL (CPL Modular) so any air time is appreciated.

Long time expired PPL!

Hi Guys,

Any one in the Lincoln/Lincolnshire area have a spare seat?

It would be nice to get airborne again as I haven't flown for at least 17 years.
Have a little experience to offer as I have built two aircraft over this period.

Of course would love to contribute to expenses incurred.

Heres hoping

Best regards,

Thank you Jay,

It is much appreciated.

I have been in contact with Barry and have arranged a meeting with him at Kirton gliding club.

Best regards,

Looking to get back into flying SEP and possibly looking to buy into a share of an aircraft or join a club (money permitting of course). I have a CPL/MEIR and been keeping the IR valid every year but not so much the SEP. I would like to get back into single engine flying. I currently live in Hampshire not too far to travel from Blackbushe or Popham. I did some of my flying from Lee on Solent couple of years back so not to bothered about the travel. PM me if anyone can help. Regards

I live in the Kingston area, so I'm local to Biggin Hill, Fairoaks, Denham...

I'm 42 hours into my PPL. Had a year-long hiatus due to life getting in the way. Was due to fly in August, but we are having to move due to landlord selling our beloved apartment.

I'm staying sharp with theory but would be great to get back into a plane if anyone wants the company. I will be getting Night Rating and MEP almost immediately afterward. Aim to get Full IR inside of two years and Jet Orientation as the dream is to own a Citation Mustang (aim for the stars before you land on the cloud!)

Anyway... if any fair folk are flying and want to keep the right seat warm, pick me!

For BatteriesNotIncluded

Got my PPL at Denham early this year and am currently just keeping it warm via self hire every 2-3 weeks while I work out what to do next (and what I can afford: divorce pending). Have found myself a little lacking in confidence to rush into anything too ambitious and it would be good to have someone in the RHS who is aviation-savvy, or another newish PPL to share, with whom to fly more or less locally and extend boundaries a bit. Not sure if this forum allows PMs but if not please reply on the forum and I'll attempt to give non-spamable contact details.

Anybody who's interested in joining me for trips away or simply the local area i'd be more than happy to hear from you.

PM here or ask for my e-mail / phone number.


Hi H_9. My gf and I are both PPL students (47hrs / 27hrs) and would love to pick up some more general experience on a cost sharing basis. Can't PM you but otherwise can do email at ben DOT coffman AT gmail DOT com.

Hi All,

Soon to be starting PPL (just finalising which school) be more than grateful to tag along in a spare seat for experience and conversation, happy to pick up incidentals. Weekends usual with work commitments.
