Asym Lets Go!

Theres nothing better than a board and a set of colour pens! This was Pierre’s brief prior to flying in Mike Whisky with Blackadder 26 earlier today. Pierre is coming to the end of his MEP training and currently taking on the challenges and fun of the Asymmetric flying on this portion of the course. Once Pierre has completed the MEP he will head into the sim with Blackadder 01 and start the Instrument rating training.

Can you tell us the aircraft this flightdeck belongs to?

The aircraft is flown by one of our former students all over Europe, North Africa and even Israel. There bright yellow with red markings, and very little windows, carrying everything but fair paying passengers. But can you tell us the type it belongs to?

Hey Pierre

Heres Pierre after arriving back to the BCFT apron post MEP training flight. Pierre has taken to the Duchess and like many of our students loves flying the twin.

Sam has now finished his MEP training and has moved over to the BIFM training, flying both the Duchess and our very own ALSIM procedural simulator.

Pierre and the Duchess

Heres Pierre prior to departure completing the ‘A’ Check on Mike Whisky. During the ‘A’ check Pierre decided the left engine required more oil, and is seen adding Oil to the left engine. We encourage our students to take a hands on approach to things such as oil and refuelling, whilst theres always a member of staff available to assist, our students relish the chance to go it ‘alone’. Pierre has now completed his first MEP flight, only another 5 hours to go until IR! Want to know more about BCFT and the flight training courses we offer?

YAK!

Yesterday afternoon ATPL ground school student Spencer made the most of the sunny weather and flew his YAK – 18T into Bournemouth parking at our facility. He flew in from Sandown on the Isle of Wight after grabbing some lunch after flying from his home base at White Waltham. The YAK – 18T is a Russian produced training aircraft, larger than our Duchess fleet, the YAK is powered by a radial engine. Compressed Air is used to move flaps and gear, making it somewhat different to our our single engine training fleet. After a short chat and tour of the aircraft, Spencer departed by towards London.
