Exam Week!

Our students are now halfway through their exams this week and from the feedback we have been receiving, it all seems to be going well!

This sitting features a good proportion of our students who are about to sit their first ever exams. The tuition offered by our instructors along with the fantastic resources from Padpilot will surely take them through the week with ease.

For the seniors of the course, hopefully these will be the last and looking forward to seeing you on the flight line.

Best of luck to all of you!
Keep studying hard.

As the week concludes, so does Quentin’s time with us.

He trained with BLD01 for his Instrument rating on our FNPTII and BE76 Duchess, making a quick progression along the course.

Today he flew with EXM 108 for his IR Skills test from which he came back with a solid pass.

He will now make the journey to Dublin for his MMC/JOC.

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!

Bravo Igino

What a busy week it has been, with Pilot Careers Live and 3 CAA skills test taking place!

A big well done to Igino, one our newly qualified students, having passed the Instrument Rating – his final module with us.

Igino commenced training with us back in summer for the CPL where he took the conversion of flying in UK airspace in his stride. He completed both modules with a first series pass.

He will now move forward to complete his MCC course.

All the best Igino!

Xclusive Jets Recruitment Day

Our FNPTII simulator is extensively used for IR training, set to emulate the BE76 Duchess’ that we operate.

But did you know the simulator can be set to operate a wide array of aircraft?

Our facilities were used by Xclusive Jets earlier this week to hold a recruitment day for future First Officers. For this event we set the simulator to replicate an aircraft in their fleet, the Cessna Citation, so that the candidates could be assessed.

We wish all those that underwent the assessment the best of luck!
