After commencing his Flying Course and completing his First Solo on the school’s black Thruster Dimitar Ivanov decided to buy his own yellow Thruster to complete his training. On 23rd January Dimitar passed his GST in his own Thruster G RAFH which accounts for the beaming smile on his face despite the fact that he is being attacked by an angry looking shark. Congratulations Dimitar on gaining your licence and an interesting looking aircraft.


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.
