Before my license was restricted on medical grounds to Group 1 only, I used to take non-pilot friends regularly on that transit. There was universal amazement that we could do this kind of thing.

Even though I've now done it loads of times I'm still surprised each time. Yesterday I heard ATC telling a Monarch (airbus I think) on a four mile final that he should look out for a Skyranger crossing the 26 threshold northbound at low level - I thought...hey, that's me, and put a bit more throttle on!

It does impose quite a high RT load though.
