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,

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

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,

3. Experience: over 130 hrs in fixed wing (mostly Cessna 152/172) and rotary (mostly Schweizer 300), plus 7 years of professional helicopter flight testing (over 100 hours in the back seat of Blackhawks etc)
4. Money: completely willing to split costs! Of course, free flights are awesome too. ;-)

Anyone wants to split flying costs in Madrid / Toledo area?

Im looking for someone who wants to split the cost of renting a plane for a few hours mon 28 jan - fri 1 feb.

You can log the entire time, pilot-in-command, as i dont care about logging hours.
Must be checked out and current at Aerodomo Camarenilla or Cuarto Vientos (or other small airports close to Madrid).

A little about me..
Im an airline pilot. Have a long layover in Madrid. WIll be free on mon jan 28 - thu 31.
I have about 13,000hrs and currently fly Cessna 172/175 on weekly basis.
I just wanted to fly around the area, check check out some other airports maybe?
U get hours at half price, i get to look out the window.

Hi all - I'm a PPL candidate flying out of Manchester Barton. Passed first solo and would love to get more experience in the cockpit as an observer as I continue to learn. My flight instruction is only on Saturdays (when the weather is co-operative) so it's a slow process and I'd love to keep up momentum. Happy to share costs, of course, and to join from Liverpool or perhaps even Blackpool.

Currently moving to Manchester area, usually fly for a living but unfortunately lost job due to Covid 19.

Looking for some fun flying, possibly:

Anyone not using their aircraft much and want some help towards the costs, happy to fly some hours with you or on my own.

I have CPL/IR, FI rating and around 5,000 hours, a mixture of GA, Microlight, Tailwheel, Aerobatics, Instructing and Airline.

Safe and experienced pilot w/ sense of humour, looking to make some connections in the area.
