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.

Can contribute to costs of flying in South East England

Anyone looking for a way to lower their flight costs give me a shout.

Based in West Sussex, have never flown in the UK before (FAA licence), looking for someone to introduce me to flying over here.

Flexible with time as I work shift work, (flight dispatch at LGW), willing to travel and can contribute to the cost of flying.

Looking for anyone with a spare seat flying out of Blackpool EGNH

I'm a FAA certificate holder, done 99.9% of my flying in the USA

Now back home more often so before I start going through the CAA procedures to fly in the UK on my FAA ticket I would like to get in the air whenever possible to help get educated and comfortable with the airspace/ATC etc.

Very willing to share acceptable costs.

Any redhill flyers want to team up for a day and maybe show me the area from the air

Learned to fly at Denham and since then had a career in USA flying Falcon 20 and DC9

Looking to pass a day with some good company March 22

Want to Join You in Cockpit (Essex, Cambs, Suffolk - UK)

Hello Everyone,

Iíd like to get in touch with Pilot-Folks who fly any time of a week to anywhere in the UK or outside Ė to join you in the cockpit.

I am 37 yo Second-Career-ATPL-Student, with PPL and 90hrs total. Flying experience from UK and Spain. While taken time off work to study Iíd to stay in touch with cockpit environment, be in other planes than C150/C172, see other airfields, see how you work.

I am easy to get on with, I wouldnít interfere or play wise guy. I can help with workload, radio, maps, keeping heading, making coffee on the ground.

I donít mind this being one off or regular thing. As to the costs, I havenít considered contributions fund (paying my own way through my training), but I donít mind paying your landing fee (as long as we donít land at Stansted or Heathrow, lol).

I live in Newmarket, Suffolk (border with Cambridgeshire and Essex) and can travel up to the departure airfield.

You can check me out on FB or Linked In (not allowed yet to post URLs), jsut type in Jakub Duzynski

Happy to meet for a coffee in your base airfield first 😊

Take care,

Jakub

Thumbs up Goodwood to Derbyshire

May be a long shot, but is there anyone traveling from Goodwood up north tomorrow Sat 7th with a spare seat ?
My mate is dropping a truck off for the FOS and is looking at trains back but it is not easy with many changes !
Ideally somewhere near Derby.
Happy to contribute !

I would be interested to fly with any PPL's as I try to rebuild my 'lost' self belief. I'm a 200hrs PPL(A) and I feel like I would like to observe and learn from other pilots as well as share the love of flying that I still have.

My closest airfields are Biggin Hill and Redhill. I'm more than happy to contribute financially where appropriate.

Many thanks

Angel Looking for spare seat for FAA PPL pilot (former flight test engineer)

Looking for a spare seat for fun and to keep my flying skills fresh! My BFR was last year and medical's up to date. I'm living in Munich, Germany now, but I'm traveling back home to the US for the holidays.

Anyone flying in the following areas with spare seats, let me know!

NJ/NYC area: 22 Dec to 29 Dec
Puerto Rico: 31 Dec to 8 Jan
Ft Lauderdale/West Palm: 9 Jan to 13 Jan
Munich, Germany/nearby: any other days ;-)

My info:
- PPL fixed wing, ~130 hrs in mostly Cessna 172/152 (various models, including G1000)... some time in Piper
- Little bit of seaplane & glider training, little bit of Pilots n Paws experience, happy to help with volunteer projects!
- Rotary wing: ~11 hrs total & solo'ed a few times in Schweizer 300CBi; few hours in Hughes 500 and R-22 also
- 7 years of professional (rotary) flight testing experience
- >100hrs in the back of twin-engine helicopters (as FTE)

Looking forward to flying with some of you! :-)

Looking for GA pilots regularly flying from London to or through Dinard (LFRD)

Hello PPRuNe !
I am looking for pilots regularly flying to or through Dinard from any London GA airport.
As a PPL student (~25h) I am looking to build up some experience by travelling with more experienced pilots.
I am based in London and my ATO is Dinard (LFRD), where I often go for the weekend.
Thank you very much for your help. Best regards,

S
