"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward. For there you have been, and there you will always long to return."

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. Start learning what 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 airforce it must be good...and it certainly is.
The World really is your affordable oyster with your computer and flight sim programme. Today the airforce flies drone attack aircraft anywhere in the world from base stations thousands of miles away. Anyone can now afford to learn fly anywhere in the world day or night in real time conditions including the weather. A pilot has to plan his or her route, assessment of weather conditions and terrain clearance. This course teaches you what you need to know to navigate your Cessna 172 around the world VFR. It goes far beyond the abilities of the pocket for flying in the real world. Also you are flying the latest brand new Cessna 172 with state of the art Avionics, not some rattling old noisy rental plane with minimal equipment.
Why spend thousands at a flying school when you can learn for free? This course helps you to decide on spending huge amounts of cash on a pilots licence or not!
For this beginner course you will need a computer and a joystick, (rudder pedals are not necessary but are also recommended) and a flight sim programme such as a cessna 172. Microsoft flight sim and X plane 11 are good ones for example.
It also teaches you things that can catch you out in total safety.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who seriously wants to learn to fly but cannot afford it at this time.
Chief Flying instructor.
Baron flying club.
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.
