Many thanks for that info SFF. Modular and taking your time is obviously the way to go. Even modular @ L3 is too expensive.

Cheers

Thereís been an Easy aircraft performing base training the past couple of days at NQY.

Maybe to get the L3 cadets training completed ?

Maybe but probably more likely keeping various airframes flying once a month and crews current.

Nope, it was Base training for those who had completed their LPC in the Sim.

They are all 'temporarily postponed' so carrying on if they wish on the same contract in the hope Wizz re-activate their deal in the contract. Lucky for these cadets, it was an ATPL and not an MPL.

Having driven past L3ís swanky sim centre the other day in Crawly, I can confirm not a single one was in use.

Unless you can see the position of the drawbridges (which I don't think you can from Gatwick Road) I doubt you can confirm anything.

Stone Cold 2,

You should drive by tomorrow, I have just looked at the SIM schedule, and they are all in use.

And did you know that some of the training is done with motion off? Obviously you don't.

I had seen the drawbridges and all were down with no sign of activity.

Some very touchy people in here. I left the sim at CAE 19:30.

It was quiet on the road, I drove past very slowly. Nice looking sims.

L3 had a Diamond DA40 accident @ Cranfield some weeks ago. Any idea what happened? I presume / hope the pilot was ok. Mysteriously scant coverage.

Sorry folks, the answer is in ‘Accidents’ where I should have gone first. Pilot ok which is main thing. The report will be from the AAIB.

You know this is a thread about a group of rip-off merchants right?

Stay clear of this organisation. If you want to waste your money on integrated training at least go somewhere thatíll get you through it.

I agree. Avoid at all costs. Appalling and toxic. Complete and utter waste of money.
