Under the Aero Alliance flying school we see our first Student to begin training under night conditions. Visit back for updates on his progress! Below are some exerts (with his permission) from his personal blog. Enjoy:
"Tonight I started my night rating. I'm constantly in a position to want to learn as much as I can to make me a better pilot. I think the slight transition to flying on instruments partially will help me do this.

As a Flying Instructor with Aero Alliance I, along with the other instructors love the summer time. It is hard to be upset with the world when your have the warm air and open blue skies to greet you at work every day of the week, okay, nearly every day of the week!
However as winter looms ever closer, the atmosphere changes and instead of packing our sun tan lotion for the day sitting on the Le Touquet beach, we pack the torches, ready for the season of night flying.

Earlier this year Aero Alliance was asked whether it could conduct a full flight test profile on a Seneca to establish a new data package for the next generation of light aircraft simulators. Aero Alliance was approached because of its wide experience of flight simulation and flight calibration expertise combined with experienced multi-engine light aircraft pilots to undertake this kind of specialised aerial activity.

One family from Kent were due to fly back from Spain on a scheduled airliner after a summer break holiday.
Unfortuantly during the holiday the child contracted Chicken Pox and was denied travel with their booked carrier, so leaving the family to make their own way back, a gruelling 1000 mile drive, estimated to take 2-3 days by car.
AERO ALLIANCE received the emergency repatriation request at 5pm. Crews were readied immediately and the aircraft was deployed at 07:30 the following morning.

We are delighted to announce that we now have a De Havilland Dove available for charter. This classic aircraft, seen below at Shoreham whilst collecting passengers for a trip to Le Touquet, has recently been renovated and is resplendent in RAF Transport Command livery. This aircraft dates from 1948 and is in beautiful condition both inside and out.

Our work horse Piper PA31 Chieftain was delivered to our Maintenance Base at Redhill by Andy Bland and Mike Parsons. Just like cars aircraft have to have service intervals or commonly known as "checks". These checks are done in time terms, not mileage and range from 50 hour checks where the engines are examined in depth plus the airframe and systems to the larger hour checks where wings are x-rayed to check the main spars inside and engines are overhauled; whether they visually need it or not!
