Congratulations to our LSA pilot Rupert

Rupert is no stranger to the skyye and already has his helicopter licence. He has now completed our conversion course to fixed wing aircraft and qualified with his NPL (LSA) licence. The training involves writing two more exams as the Principles of Flight are different for the two types of aircraft and the Technical and General exam also needed to test his new technical knowledge of fixed wing aircraft, along with some practical training with our instructors.

Our Instructor Johnny (right) congratulates Rupert after his flight skills test
