Congratulations to Matthew Collins - PPL pass May 2014

Congratulations to Matthew Collins for passing his Private Pilots Licence today. Matthew has completed the PPL course and will now enjoy the luxury of sharing his passion for flying with passengers. 




Matthew, having previously flown in fixed wing aircraft, picked up the initial rotary flying like a natural. After completing his first solo flight, at an impressively low hour time, Matthew began to build his solo hours leading up to his solo cross country flight. The cross country qualifier involved Matthew lifting from Goodwood, flying to Thruxton via Blackbushe Airport before returning back to base at Goodwood.  Once the solo cross country was completed Matthew and instructor Toby Chamberlain began the final pre test preparations. With the PPL skills test completed, Matthew can now fly as a fully qualified private pilot. Well done to Matthew what a fantastic achievement.
