    Learning To Fly Videos

    I'm new to the forum! Hi!!

    I'm a radio presenter for Heart - and I'm learning to fly microlight aircraft at Kemble Flying Club based at Cotswold Airport. Many thanks to David Young.
    I'm pretty early on in my training (as you will tell!! haha) and I find doing these videos really useful.As I make more videos - they'll improve as I experiment with various angles etc. So bear with me on that and do let me know what you think.

    Thanks very much, Ben

    Please carry on posting the films..even though there are a lot of seasoned pilots on here,we do tend to forget the basics.
    Your films will serve as a "gentle reminder" to suck folk........me included

    Hi Andy, really appreciate your comments and I certainly will do. Iím lucky my instructor David Young wants to do these videos too. Theyíre certainly helpful for me so if anyone else is being helped then itís a win win as far as Iím concerned.

    Hopefully a new one this coming week. Due to fly tomorrow.

    Hi Ben
    Great video I was looking for something like this when I was learning but there wasn’t much about, think it will really help students leaning and like what as already been said good for us who have passed to watch because you do forget some things and you never stop learning, keep up with the videos

    cheers John.

    You can teach monkeys to fly better than that
