Successful Skills Test Pass!

HUGE congratulations to our student Aeryn who successfully passed her PPL Skills Test today!

Despite the cold and frosty start, Aeryn was fortunate to be able to take advantage of some of the better weather we have experienced over the last week. Flying in her favourite Cessna 152 - G-BOYL, Aeryn flew with our in-house examiner, Laurance. 

The flight took them both to the east of Gatwick, with a diversion into East Sussex, followed by VOR work to both identify position and also for tracking purposes. Once the navigation element was completed, it was time to demonstrate general handling skills - such as stalling, steep turns and a practice forced landing before returning to Redhill for some circuits. 

Aeryn flew the entire test to a very high standard and examiner Laurance remarked afterwards that he was very impressed with her pre-flight preparation.

Aeryn is celebrating her success this evening by watching the latest Star Wars release.

Congratulations Captain, you have done yourself proud!
