PostForum: Private & Personal Flying   Posted: Sun Feb 07, 2010 5:26 pm   Subject: Ivy House Country Hotel, Lowestoft- NO FEES THERE!
Flew into this hotel for a Sunday lunch with the misses in 2007, shortly after passing my PPL(H). A very friendly place with a small field (with a windsock) they use as a helipad- they went out and m ...

I don't have any figures, but would guess that the average time needed on a 44 would be considerably less than the 22 as it's far less 'twitchy'.
It's an expensive way to learn though!

Not sure of any web sites, but CAA CAP413 is the official guide. The AFE PPL series of books also has a very good chapter on RT.
There's also a CD set (2 CD's I think) that is meant to be very good, ...

1000 hrs, good grief!

I'm still trying to reach that magic 100hrs post PPL!
Now that you're CPL (very well done, by the way, I still quake at the thought of 500hrs of ground school!), can you not ...

Hi Eric,

I live 30 mins from Cambridge airport (did some training there at Aeromega last year), but fly out of Conington now. I'm still a rookie with just over 20 hrs P1 since gaining my PPL but al ...

Sam,

Both exams are mainly helicopter orientated, but do cover common ground too. The aircraft general (technical) has the odd question about instuments which will be common to fixed and fling wing ...

A good idea to keep your hand in post GST too. I've been aiming to do an hour or so every 10 (20 hrs in, stuck to it so far) just refreshing all the manoeuvres covered in the PPL sylabus (apart from E ...

Welcome to the rotary world, Sam!

For Q's and A's, 'Pooleys JAR/PPL helicopter Manual' is excellent. I also used 'Principles of Helicopter Flight' by WJ Wagtendonk, both available from Transair amo ...

If that's USD 900, then it's a bargain! A mere GBP 450 if you can avoid VAT and duty Wink

I would have thought the medical was compulsory for the owners' insurance to be valid if nothing else? I had to have a medical and passed air law for both PPL(M) and PPL(H) first solos...

Hi Matt,
