My flying adventures [Part 1]

Good morning/ afternoon/ evening everybody,

Some of you may know me, and know what I do. Some maybe don’t, and therefore please let me say hi and introduce me!

My name is Jack, I’m a student Pilot and I’m 15. All my images and regulations belong to EASA under the CAA. Today, I’ve included some recent images and videos of my recent adventures in the UK. Some flights I have been training, others purely for ‘fun’ with my friends. In one image, you can see me in IFR IMC conditions. The cloud base was pretty low that day, and so we climbed above it. Also, you’ll see a PA28 Cherokee 180. This is my friends aircraft and it’s very fast and beautiful.

We also a Dc3 chipmunk which I was very lucky to meet the pilot and chat. Also, we can see a ladder with someone standing on it fueling the planes?? Yep you guessed it, that’s me! Here I am fueling our company’s aircraft with yep, you guess again, a Robinson’s bottle. Funny. If you want the explanation, feel free to PM me lol.

I hope to create these little ‘hello’ pages weekly and I hope that everyone on the IFC finds these interesting, informative and inspiring. I hope, with my adventures, to inspire all of you young pilots who dream of flying. It’s a great, addicting hobby and you love it from the first minute.

Enjoy.
Wishing everyone a great week.
Jack

@Ecoops_123 is correct. The factory built funnel is tiny. It needs 150L on each wing. I spend roughly 30mins fueling it. It prefers Robinson’s bottle, not Ribena. The thread is wierd on the cap screw and makes it hard but very fun :)

It’s my job aswell. I’m only a student pilot but getting a job out of it aswell. Will be good for the airlines

Flying is amazing, one of a kind. Take one flight. At my work, we say that if you do one flight with us, you will be addicted. A bit like all the biscuits at our work, you’re addicted
