As a Sussex based Flying School, there is certainly lots to see locally from the air, the South Downs, Coastal Line and all the various Coastal towns certainly make for a more than pleasant view of our local surroundings. But there is more to see in this Sussex based Flying Club.....

As most pilots are becoming more aware, the days of the JAA are coming to an end, making way for the new European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
For pilots with a curent JAA rating the conversation will be automatic with no stress inducing hoops to jump through! However, the situation is less clear for pilots still using their "licence for life" UK PPL. The proposed conversion from UK PPL to EASA will involve a skill test along with some other legislation to delve into.

The Instrument Meteorological Rating (IMC) course is natural step forward for those who have qualified for their Private Pilots Licence. It permits pilots to fly safely in poor weather conditions, although its real purpose is to ensure that a flight may safely continue should the pilot inadvertently encounter bad weather conditions en-route.
The IMC course consists of a minimum of 15 hours flying instruction. At the end of the course there is a flight test and a written examination.

It has become very apparent that we have entered into a long period of financial stagnation which has lead to less work, lower pay and subsequently much lower disposable income being available. The length of this stagnation period is currently predicted at being of a 10 year duration and this poses great difficulty to all types of business especially flight training organisations.

In 2010/2011, as a newly qualified PPL (Private Pilot), the next logical and cheap route to an extra ticket on my licence was the Night Rating. With only 5 hours of training required it is a quick and easy tool to learn, but will enable a pilot to hire the aircraft on the later part of the day in the winter where by not having to rush to get back to base before the sun goes down.

It used to be one of the extra perks of travelling to Europe, that on your return to the UK, you could stock up on alcohol and tobacco at prices 20% of that in the UK high street.
Nowadays, this benefit is normally only offered if you are travelling long haul on intercontinental flights from the UK, and even then the Airport's shops increase their prices only giving you a small discount.

It isn't unusual to take a short domestic flight to Heathrow or Gatwick and be delayed by weather or air traffic restrictions. This could mean the difference between catching and missing your connecting long haul flight. If taking an earlier connection isn't possible, you might want to consider flying into one of London's smaller, uncongested airfields, some of which are only a 20 minute cab ride from Heathrow or Gatwick.
