I had my first CPL lesson today at Stapleford, and after I had finished and headed down to the small restaurant, I could have sworn I saw Alan Sugar walk in.

I know he has a pilots licence, and what with me still being on a high from actually being on my own CPL course, I couldn't be sure....

Anyone seen him around to confirm it was/wasnt him...?

he flys a Cirrus SR22 out of there - is there quite a bit.

G-WAMS (one of staplefords Arrows) used to be his AMS = Alan Michael Sugar as in AMSTRAD - (AMS Trading)
He was flying there quite a bit when I did my flying at Stapleford.
I don't do 'hero' worship, or c'leb watching though, so I really couldn't give a toss!

Shuggy just phoned me as usual to discuss his day, and you wouldn't believe it, he said there was a new guy in the Stapleford restaurant today.

Spoke to him at Gloucestershire Airport once, after he'd booked out. Was tempted to say "your're fired but resisted" :lol:

I haven't been there for a while, but used to see Sir Alan quite a lot down there. Seems like a decent enough guy.
