Private Pilot Licence

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was just wondering what the possibilities are for keeping my PPL valid while in the navy. I am going in as AC but would still like to keep my private flying up to date.

    When i asked at the careers office i was told that there might be an opportunity but i was given a yes or no answer.

    I think i read somewhere on here that ther are flying clubs at yeovilton and culdrose but would a rating be welcomed or is it purely for flying officers?

    Any info would be great. Thanks in advance.

  2. When I served some 17 years back.

    PPL holders irrespective of rank/rate were allowed to fly in their off duty time.

    Some trades/branches had to declare the fact as it used to be deemed a dangerous activity and needed to be taken into account.

    I would consider pleaure flying to be less dangerous than free fall parachuting, but it's my humble view only. :D
  3. I have a really burning desire recently to do that, I could think of nothing better than throwing myself out of a Plane, think i'm turning into an adrenalin junkie! :D
  4. I can recommend it, although I don't know why I pushed myself out, but landing, safely was an amazing feeling!
