Only just discovered these forums, despite reading my other half's Flyer for a couple of years now! And just received my PPL, which explains why I am now looking for ideas on how to make best use of it, which is what brought me here.
It took me almost two years, and 70 hours, although the first few months were sitting on the right, doing a co-pilot's course. And of course the appalling weather has meant it took me from January first solo to July's skills test, and then our family holiday delayed the R/T and final paper work. Great to have it all done and had the pleasure of flying my wife somewhere last week rather than the other way round. I may even have impressed her a bit with my landings - well the first one anyway.
Just returned from my Qualifying Cross Country. LFBL-LFBI-LFBU-LFBL. Really pleased, weather was fab and all went well apart from slightly strange over city downwind at Poitiers?? I double checked their instructions too as you are normally routed around the East then North of the city, but they wanted me LH downwind for RW21 which is directly over the city??
All updated. Nice to see some more freshly minted PPLs coming off the production line Never too late to declare an early achievement this year, like tomshep - it's good to see the list continues to grow.
