Which isn't exactly very demanding I always thought the NPPL was better 100nm with two stops
I don't know.
What does the evidence suggest?
People with new LAPLs
- never flying beyond base?
- bumble aimlessly around not finding destinations beyond 80 miles
Due to my slightly unusual route to a UK PPL I never did the traditional QXC my UK trained counterparts did but having flown across a lot of Europe after qualifying and some time in the US I never thought I had missed out on that experience of the QXC.
Some post qualification help/guidance/coaching is probably more useful than just the experience of the QXC alone.
