    Talking Ive Just Started Private Pilot Training.

    Ive just started doing my Joint Aviation Authority-Private Pilots Licence (JAR-PPL). Ive been wanting to do this for such a long time, so i finally got round to my first day at the airport today. I was like a little boy there i was so excited. Im really looking forward to seeing this through, the instructor is a nice guy too so it should be a great experience.
    Any1 on here doing their PPL or have done it?

    my son however got a trip up of his gaffer and was allowed to have a go at the control's

    hope all goe's well for you mate, and if any av-gas get's into your car you will need more and more lessons on how to keep your car off the runway

    One of our suppliers has his own plane. He has offered several times to take me on a flight.

    The first time he offered I was at his factory looking into why some of the equipment he supplied kept failing.

    I was all set to say yeah that would be great when he added proudly that he'd built it himself

    Might send one the guys instead.

    Good luck with the lessons.

    Yep.

    45 Hours now, not been flying for 2 years now, work, though have fun!

    I would suggest you buy Aviation Law, The Confuser and the PPL1 book, and get your medical done quick, once you have your medical and Aviation law exam completed you can do your Solo, (after minimum 7 hours)

    Good luck, expensive hobby, well worth it though.

    I use the Sussex Flying Club at Brighton International Airport, best thing is they have a bar for when I finished

    Good on you mate. It is one of those things that if you are into it you will finish it.

    I have had my PPL for 14 yrs now. Have got approx 840hrs of flying up in a Cessna 182. It isn't my profession but one of my hobbies. I must say though, that flying in a 182 for all these years has me hankering for something with a bit more go.
