Yes, if the course corrects an ill-judged or forgotten process that causes infringements. Or would you rather they flew again to make the same error?
If you can afford an aircraft, or even a share in one, to fly at £50/hr then you should be able to afford £200. I also think that staying overnight in a hotel is excessive - what is wrong with driving even a couple of hours to a course? I find myself often driving a couple of hours for a day of meetings followed by a 2 hour return.
It's an 0930 start isn't it, and it's made clear that being late will be regarded as failure to participate.
Would people take the risk with traffic, driving a couple of hours?
Yes, I often drive from home (near Turweston) to meetings at Abbey Wood or RAF Waddington (a journey of ~100 miles) - many start at 0900hrs and so I set off at 0645-0700hrs. Being late is not an option either (just as it was when I flew from Waddington too).
What would happen if you overslept in your hotel or the car wouldn’t start? You can over-worry about such things.
