In this visual Navigation course, flight planning every leg. We will be flying the Mk2 Hawker Hurricane which is modified with the desert air filter and camo.
We take off from British Gibraltar on the southern most tip of Europe and head south to North Africa and fly {not always along the coast} 20 legs to Cairo in Egypt.
We may have mechanical problems along the way and we are also flying actual weather conditions.
VR  VFR navigation and no auto pilot. taking careful note Headings time high ground and of weather conditions.
Great use will also be made of the GPS moving map. Hurricane is not fitted with VOR.
The trip will be made in a series of short flights taking in the interesting locations along the way. You can even look the places up on google maps and google earth.
The British Hawker Hurricane played a major roll in the North African campaigns during world war 2 and we will be passing most of the locations, You could take a closer look if you wish.
This course was inspired by the North Africa campaigns in WW2. There is lots of additional information on this on the internet.
VFR Flight Planning and The Basics
VFR flight planning is the name given to the form of planning undertaken for flights in which the pilot will adhere to the set of regulations known as Visual Flight Regulations (VFR); VFR flights are undertaken when the pilot can use his or her own senses to guide the aircraft during its take-off, landing and journey. In order for a flight to take off under VFR, there must be certain criteria met for this to be a safe option. Weather conditions must meet specific requirements before a VFR flight is allowed to occur and pilots should be able to clearly see from the cockpit in order to navigate safely.
VFR Flight Planning and Controlled Airspace
All airspace is separated into controlled and uncontrolled areas. Air Traffic Control manages the airspace by separating VFR aircraft from other craft whilst in controlled airspace. Usually Air Traffic Control only needs to provide help to IFR craft in controlled airspace but will where possible assist VFR craft if the assistance is asked for and if the airways are not too busy. VFR flight planning can allow for the successful arrangement of flight space ahead of time and this will always aid in the completion of safe flights.
VFR Flight Planning and Technology
As VFR flight planning has developed along with the technology which now makes it even safer for all concerned, so the process of arranging and scheduling flights has become a much simpler operation all round. Computer aided VFR flight planning removes much of the brainwork which used to be involved in the process; sophisticated computer programmes can now calculate risks and predict weather patterns and air traffic well in advance of any flight. This has made the business of commercial flight much safer, faster and simpler than ever before in the history of commercial airlines. As our technological knowledge improves and advances it is accepted that all flight planning will become even simpler as will the general management of aircraft and airlines. Improved communication has gone a long way towards making the safe air travel we all enjoy, possible.

I will show you the basic skills you need to fly aircraft fixed wing and rotary.
Learn from me first before you go to the flying school and part with your hard earned thousands as it could save you a lot of money.
If you are stuck on anything please feel free to ask questions.
So you want to learn to fly?
Why not it is Great fun.
My style is not for everyone but here it is.
Flying can be very very expensive, Helicopters are double expensive, but now there is no need to let that stand in your way.
The future for flying training is CGI and VR headsets with controllers. The air forces around the world are already doing this in their pilot training as is saves a fortune. So whatever type of flying you want to do this is an inexpensive way to go.
Today the flight sim on your own computer with a VR headset is almost like the real thing. (Yes it is!) I am a real pilot and done plenty of both. I love flying in VR because it is FREE. Loads of cool aircraft to fly too as FREE downloads. You can easily build hundreds of flying hours experience for FREE.
If you want to be a commercial pilot there is no option but to spend heaps of cash, join the military or land yourself a scholarship with a big airline. But in the meantime you can learn with me on your own PC almost for free. My courses are an excellent introduction to being a pilot.
You will need a joystick and controllers too and a flight sim programme. I use X Plane 11 and microsoft flight sim. VR headset is highly recommended but not essential.
Don’t waste cash at the local flying school just yet. I am a Multi engine pilot and skydiver, I qualified as a pilot in 1996. I ran my own flying school “The Baron Flying Club” at Shoreham airport in East Sussex, where students were trained to PPL and multi engine PPL standard CAA UK.
Today I teach private students only.
I love doing low flying and aerobatics but I want to bring my online training to everyone, students, people who simply cannot afford it, or do not have the medical requirements because lots of people do fly just for fun and are not actually interested in going commercial. Sim flying is actually better than the real thing in many respects mainly the cost.
Using pc and mac based flight simulators we can go through every aspect of flight school without the crippling cost in easy stages and make it fun. Flight sims are not held up by the weather either as real aircraft often are, the realism levels are awesome. I enjoy flying the flight sim every day, We really can go anywhere in the world to fly.
Do it in your own time as much or as little at a time as you like, At the end of my courses you will know if you have the ability, desire or need to actually lash out thousands and thousands of your own cash to fly the real thing.
The drones are the future certainly for combat aviation. They will be controlled by someone on a computer sitting in a room on the other side of the world.
VR headsets are really very good for flying and I highly recommend them. In my opinion it really is worth investing in a good joystick, throttles and rudder pedals, even second hand ones from ebay can be found at a good price.
