Gone till November!

Yes thats right there will be no more updates on this blog for a while I'm afraid! The primary reason being that I'm on the other side of the world training to be an Airline Pilot! I'm based in Hamilton, New Zealand and currently doing my PPL flying having passed all the written exams!

I've just started work on my ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot Licence) exams and should be back in the UK in November to take the exams at Gatwick. In the mean time here are a few pics of one of the aircraft I'm flying. Its an Alpha 160A and it makes 160HP from an unbelievably unstressed 8 litre engine at 2700RPM! It cruises at 127KTS which is just shy of 150MPH!
