Congratulations Matthieu

Congratulations to Matthieu who passed his IR first time today. As he is converting from an ATPL(H), he is our more experienced student. Matthieu also differentiates from his peers by being on a reduced CPL and IR course, which we were sure he would get through easily. His test took him to Alderney and then back to Bournemouth with EXM91 where he was told he earned a very solid pass. All the best Matthieu!

Two First Solo Flights!

We had an excellent end to the week with two of our students going on their very first solo flights, and not in the easiest of conditions either! Well done to both Scott and Frazer who along with their classmate Issy now have a week off and will be heading to FIT Aviation, LLC next week for four months! Unfortunately, the wind stopped Issy going solo today so best of luck to her for her first solo in sunny Florida.

Pre-Test Flights

Our Duchess’ are away today, each flying a pre-test sortie. Quentin on board Mike Whiskey, has headed west towards Exeter to carry out his approaches with instructor Blackadder 01. Meanwhile, Airline Pilot Academy student Vinesh Patel has donned his life jacket for his flight across the English Channel, ready to carry out his approaches in Alderney with Blackadder 26. The flights are designed to simulate the real skills test. It will take them through the sequence in which they will fly the test as well as possible routes they may expect to receive from their CAA examiners. They are expected to make their own decisions throughout all stages of the flight with minimal input from the instructors. The success of which, would mean a recommendation for test. Best of luck guys! Interested in becoming a commercial pilot? Then get in touch. ⬇️ 01202 596 955info@bcft.aero
