Well the new webite has been launched www.flyinginfrance.com

Another week and more fun and adventures......
The author in Cannes
Over the passed couple of weeks I have been all over the place, Monaco, Cannes, Nantes, La Rochelle...... so much lovely flying have also met some terrific people.
We have had some god awful weather, winter has stretched in May but here I sit in next the runway in Limoges and I am wearing shorts for the first time......
Someone left a Hurricane on the tarmac at Cannes
Firstly I have had my 6th new pilot of the year pass his flight test, John Matthews, a film director from the UK hadn't flown in 20 years and now has his PPL in his hand and passed his test first time.
Monaco with the F1 start line over my shoulder
Then comes the exotic trip South a week ago, I have been asked by a married couple who want to do their PPL to teach them on their own plane, so off I travelled to Nice on a commercial flight with fellow commercial pilot Abdallah whom I met at flight school in Florida and lives not too far away.
It just so happened that the weekend that we flew down was the Monaco Grand Prix F1 so we got to see some of the glitz and glam that it all brings.
My office for the next few weeks
We only managed an hour flying whilst there due to the plane having a problem but some work by the plane doctors and the plane has now arrived up here in Limoges.
In the mean time my students have passed some of their theory exams and are doing really well.
Le Coissette at Cannes
Check out the Ground speed
We are approaching the longest day of the year so to fly over 7 hours in one day yesterday was a long day for me as well as teaching and briefing, but its not really work is it ? I mean flying up and down the atlantic coast of France with really nice students.
I've moved house this passed week and this is my new home
I will stop blabbing on and upload a few pictures from the passed few weeks of flying......
