Free if you finish this course, My course flying the brand new Boeing Saab Fast jet trainer the RED HAWK. If you can fly the Cessna 172 you will easily be able to fly the RED HAWK. A truly amazing aircraft, you can even do air to air refuelling and land on aircraft carriers with this.

Flight Training can be very slow and expensive. Whether you fly as a student or fly as an experienced pilot, every hour of flight costs you loads of money. You don’t have much control. Well with VR Flight sim you gain the control. You set yourself up once and practice whenever you want and for as long as you want. Let me be your guide into the VR World. Buy this course and learn everything you need to know.
The USAF train their jet fighter pilots with the VR headset and the controllers. If it is good enough for the air force it must be good...and it certainly is.
Start in the Cessna 172 one of the best trainers in the world and learn to fly the easy way then go on to learn multi engine or tail wheels even helicopters. Flight simulators for PC and Mac are great fun to play with, but do you seriously want to learn how to fly? Have you got the money or the time? are you too old? do you have a medical condition that would stop you? My course is designed to teach you everything you need to know so that at the end you will know whether to commit thousands and thousands of your cash to a flying school, or simply enjoy the pleasures of proper flying on a flight simulator going anywhere you like anywhere in the world. Do something impressive, Learn to FLY! I got my pilots licence in 1996 and regularly fly the flight simulator because I can learn to fly aircraft I would never be able to fly in real life through lack of money or opportunity.
Flying with the VR headset is awesome. It is better than flying the real thing in my opinion because it is free and safe.
The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four-person, high-wing single-engine aircraft manufactured by the Cessna company . The Cessna 172 is the most manufactured aircraft in history and probably the most popular training aircraft in the world.
The first models manufactured were delivered in 1956 and it continues to be manufactured, with the number of devices manufactured at more than 43,000 units until 2012 . 1 The Skyhawk's main competitors have been the Piper Cherokee , the Beechcraft Musketeer and the Grumman Cheetah (the latter two are no longer manufactured), and later on the DA40 Star and Symphony SA-160 .
The early 172s were virtually identical to the Cessna 170s , with the same stern shape and the same high landing gear bars, though later versions incorporated a revised landing gear, lower rear, and stern window. Cessna advertised this modification as "Omnivision". The definitive structural development, reached in the mid -sixties , consisted of the glue still used today. The profile of the plane was hardly modified since then, mainly undergoing updates in the avionics and motorization including (especially in 2005 ) the glass cabin Garmin G1000. Production stopped in the mid- 1980s, but it was resumed in 1996 with the Cessna 172R and Cessna 172SP models with respectively 120 kW (160 hp) and 135 kW (180 hp) of power.
The old Skyhawks were delivered with a 110 kW (145 hp) Continental O-300 engine, while later versions mounted 135 kW (180 hp) Lycoming O-360 thrusters , although the 110 or 120 kW O-320 versions are more common. In addition there are a few units that mounted 164 kW (220 hp) Franklin engines.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone at all who seriously wants to learn to fly but cannot afford it at this stage.
- Learn so many of the tricks to getting your flying up to a good standard.

I will show you the basic skills you need to fly aircraft fixed wing and rotary.
Learn from me first before you go to the flying school and part with your hard earned thousands as it could save you a lot of money.
If you are stuck on anything please feel free to ask questions.
So you want to learn to fly?
Why not it is Great fun.
My style is not for everyone but here it is.
Flying can be very very expensive, Helicopters are double expensive, but now there is no need to let that stand in your way.
The future for flying training is CGI and VR headsets with controllers. The air forces around the world are already doing this in their pilot training as is saves a fortune. So whatever type of flying you want to do this is an inexpensive way to go.
Today the flight sim on your own computer with a VR headset is almost like the real thing. (Yes it is!) I am a real pilot and done plenty of both. I love flying in VR because it is FREE. Loads of cool aircraft to fly too as FREE downloads. You can easily build hundreds of flying hours experience for FREE.
If you want to be a commercial pilot there is no option but to spend heaps of cash, join the military or land yourself a scholarship with a big airline. But in the meantime you can learn with me on your own PC almost for free. My courses are an excellent introduction to being a pilot.
You will need a joystick and controllers too and a flight sim programme. I use X Plane 11 and microsoft flight sim. VR headset is highly recommended but not essential.
Don't waste cash at the local flying school just yet. I am a Multi engine pilot and skydiver, I qualified as a pilot in 1996. I ran my own flying school "The Baron Flying Club" at Shoreham airport in East Sussex, where students were trained to PPL and multi engine PPL standard CAA UK.
Today I teach private students only.
I love doing low flying and aerobatics but I want to bring my online training to everyone, students, people who simply cannot afford it, or do not have the medical requirements because lots of people do fly just for fun and are not actually interested in going commercial. Sim flying is actually better than the real thing in many respects mainly the cost.
Using pc and mac based flight simulators we can go through every aspect of flight school without the crippling cost in easy stages and make it fun. Flight sims are not held up by the weather either as real aircraft often are, the realism levels are awesome. I enjoy flying the flight sim every day, We really can go anywhere in the world to fly.
Do it in your own time as much or as little at a time as you like, At the end of my courses you will know if you have the ability, desire or need to actually lash out thousands and thousands of your own cash to fly the real thing.
The drones are the future certainly for combat aviation. They will be controlled by someone on a computer sitting in a room on the other side of the world.
VR headsets are really very good for flying and I highly recommend them. In my opinion it really is worth investing in a good joystick, throttles and rudder pedals, even second hand ones from ebay can be found at a good price.
