I was thinking a little more distantly than that. Back in the late 1980s, there was a British run school in Cannes called Flight Training International (FTI). They offered intensive PPLs (and other ratings) in the sunshine, on a fleet of brand new red and white DR400s. Their registrations were mostly in the form G-FTIx. A number are still in circulation. The school folded at some point in the mid 1990s.
In a curious connection to FLYER magazine (pre Seager publishing days), the very first edition offered as a prize, an all expenses paid PPL with FTI in Cannes.
