Although the Colonel is advancing in years and receding in hairline, he qualified a mere 18 months ago, and flies a club PA28. He is also quite regimental in the keeping of financial records, as the rupees are very dear to him....
Total cost (unsubsidised) since qualification has worked out at £108.80/hr (8,916 rupees/hr). This includes club membership and couple of those small bits of equipment required for comfortable flight (tigerskin underpants, a rack for the jolly old blunderbuss etc).
The above has been partially subsidised by cost-contributing passengers within the bounds allowed by the CAA, meaning that the Colonel has only needed to drag £92.22/hr (7,557 rupees/hr) out of the pocket of his plus fours.
The Colonel is currently juggling Club 1 month currency rules with the weather with the personal financial position with flying hours. However this position should improve slightly in the New Year to allow him to shout 'Clear that bally prop what?, Arf Arf!' through the DV window a whole twice a month.
