Jack Toner Passes his GST

Wed, Sep 16, 2020

Jack Toner learned today that his employer wants him to come off furlough and resume work tomorrow. He has used furlough productively by becoming a qualified Microlight Pilot in a little more than 2 months. Jack soloed in less than 7 hours and passed his GST on 17th September with only 25 hours in his logbook. Sean Toner is Jack’s dad and has been a Microlight Pilot for many years so we suspect that a teeny bit of parental guidance may have been involved nevertheless Jack’s achievement is exceptional. Congratulations Jack. Now stop enjoying yourself and get back to work.

Not wishing to part company with his love of aviation Graham decided to convert onto something interesting and we are pleased to report that Graham was able to adapt to the more complex controls, systems and additional power available from the Thruster T600N. Graham passed his GST on 16th September and can now add the NPPL  Microlight to his  other licenses and change the motto on his BA flight case from “To Fly To Serve” to  “To Fly For Fun.“  (Also he will enhance his Green Credentials by reducing his full fuel load from 180,000 litres to 50 litres). Congratulations Graham

Jack Toner's First Solo Flight

Thu, Jul 23, 2020

On 8th July Jack Toner started on his post lockdown bucket list of things to achieve when he took his first flying lesson. A mere 16 days later on 24th July after only 6 hours 50 minutes tuition item one on the bucket list was ticked off when Jack flew Thruster G CGFZ on his first solo flight. Congratulations Jack on a textbook First Solo. If item two in your bucket is getting your Pilot’s License it looks like it won’t take you too long.


Hi Ken,

I hope you’re keeping well!

Just wanted to let you know you can add one more to the list of Fast Jet pilots you have trained! Out of 19 students being streamed after elementary flying training, 6 of us were selected for fast jet! I definitely wouldn’t have been in that top 6 without the training you gave me back home, so many thanks once again! Still plenty of work ahead but glad it’s going in the direction I wanted!

I don’t start my next stage of training until the summer so going to put my NPPL to good use with the RAF Microlight Association in the meantime!

The trial lesson was great fun, flew the entire time, thanks Ken.
