Finally got the weather and passed the PPL skills test.

Thanks to everyone at Kingsfield especially Guy and former instructors who know who they are (engine failure).

And thanks to everyone on this forum for their advice and support.

Hopefully keep flying and keep current when I get the paper work back from the CAA.

Very Happy

Now I can say "I AM a Helicopter pilot" Cool Rather than that I can fly a helicopter.
