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.

Corey Purdy. Solo in Seven and a half hours.

Wed, Jul 8, 2020

Determined efforts by Covid to thwart Corey Purdy’s first solo failed on 9/July/2020 when Corey took to the sky in Thruster G CGFZ on his own after an unusually low seven and a half hours dual training at Newtownards Aerodrome Congratulations Corey.

Flight Training Restarts on 6th July

Thu, Jun 25, 2020

GOOD NEWS! The UK Government has approved the resumption of dual flight training and Experience flights for General Aviation from 4th July. The NI assembly has approved close contact business ventures from 6th July. So from 6th July for my students who have been patiently waiting to resume flying and get their licenses the wait is over. Also anyone holding a gift voucher can make a booking by calling me on 07740766443. The government has yet to publish safety advice and precautions about close contact businesses but I assume it will involve disinfecting controls and communication equipment after each flight and may involve some type of PPE. We will be complying with any and all Government advice before resuming operations.

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!

Cheers

Ross
