Most of the instructors from BAeFT @ Prestwick are at flyglobespan, Loganair or Flybe based in GLA and EDI, several retired one at easyJet (GLA). Any one in particular?

Bob Eccles (a bit abrasive!).........Top man (He was but, many wouldn't have felt that at the time)

To make one comeback from the big 'C' is more than most can achieve!

Ten years!!

It can't be ten years.

Frankly I can not be that old and surely my flying skills would've improved a bit if it was really that long ago
Happy days......

PS Whoever got to keep the 'solo' and 'IR' book, there's a lot of rubbish that I've scribbled in there!
PPS What about KC Jones??
