Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

  1. Hi Guys,

    just had my joining date delayed till April, and i'm thinking about going to the states shortly after new year. I started my PPL over here, but price and weather has meant i've never had a good run at it.

    I just wondered if anyone has or knows anyone who's done similar? and if they would recommend a specific place to do it? Also if anyone knows how much i'd be expecting to pay that would be great?


  2. Chewey I did mine at Hercules Air Park which is just outside Clearwater Florida. Good instructors, well maintained A/c, mostly Cessna 151's or 2's. and a C 172. They also have twins if you want to go that route.
    The more hours you book, the cheaper it becomes.
    I didn't use the facility, but if you want it, they have a villa at Clearwater Beach that you can use.
    Check for up to date details and prices in Pilot or Flyer magazine.
