Its all gone Cosmic.....

The classroom at The Limousin club
Earlier this month saw the launch of Cosmo flight school in France.
Cosmo Flight school is continuing the legacy which was trail blazed by my instructor and mentor Sue Virr.
Flying over where I am living in France
I trained with Sue and due to her I learned about and fell in love with flying. Her infectious teaching ability rubbed off upon me by the bucket load to the point where I have been away and trained, qualified and now will be working as a full time flying instructor.
You can keep up to date with our day to day flying adventures on our facebook page:

Final Approach runway 03 LFBL
I have been so roundly welcomed by the local flying club they have brought in a plane specifically for us and spring has certainly sprung here in France so the skies are clear and the flying is great.
I have had a few students in the air already last week and I am fully booked this with PPL students. There are trips planned out to the coast to La Rochelle and down to Bordeaux over the coming weeks.
I was invited up to the tower at Limoges this week to meet the controllers
Fingers crossed we will have our first new PPL pilots in a few weeks time.
Personally I am loving the flying, the teaching is great fun and it seems the students are enjoying it. The little plane we have is great to fly and the airport are so friendly its a welcoming place to work. I am praying for a good weather summer and plenty of time up in the big blue......
I have 2 new students starting tomorrow with differing amounts of experience so will be sure to report in.

A pretty big week of flying with some centreline hopscotch.....
