Since the creation of our full 20-hour courses, the response has been fantastic! - With all ages taking up the challenge to complete an abridged Commercial Pilot Licence condensed into 20 hours of simulator training. The first of our adults to have completed the course recently flew his real-time, solo, Carlisle to Newcastle IFR (instruments only) flight.
A superlative effort landing safely at Newcastle following an itial go-around from an NDB to ILS approach and a radar-vectored ILS approach:
Mr. 'L', (who would like to remain anonymous at this time) sets the 'standard' for an IFR NDB approach into Newcastle International Airport departing from Carlisle on his final flight of his full 20-Hour course.
Although arguably not his finest flight, the initial approach (1) preceded a go-around (2), followed by re-establishing over NT (3), with a near miss (4), and radar-vectored ILS (5) to a SUCCESSFUL landing!
The planned approach can be seen here:
Congratulations Terry on completing the course! ;-)
