Lesson 6 - First Crosscountry Flight
You have planned a flight from Gloucestershire to the Severn Bridges and back. Now it's time to fly it. Depart from Gloucestershire on a Tuesday evening, when the ATCO is on duty and fly the route you planned in the previous lesson.
Lesson 7 - First Land Away
his time you plan the flight and fly from Wolverhampton to Gloucestershire and "land away" as it is called. The descriptions in this lesson are comprehensive, "hand holding" if you like, so that by the time you have read through the document, you will be able to fly the detail without any difficulty.
Lesson 8 - Congested Airspace
We move to a slightly more exciting environment. For this lesson, you will fly from Biggin Hill to Stapleford, north of the Thames "have lunch" and fly back again. Flying beneath Class A airspace, and close to Gatwick, London City, Luton and Stansted, this is a flight where you need to keep your wits about you.
Lesson 9 - Flying To a Major Airport
The procedures are a little stricter and the level of traffic (and the size of aircraft) is a little more awesome. It isn't London Gatwick or Manchester, but Liverpool because it is a little less awesome than the others. The flight you will make will be from Sleap near the small Shropshire town of Wem, to Liverpool. It is only a short trip - just over 30 minutes, but long enough to practice the techniques needed to fly successfully in controlled airspace.
Lesson 10 - Flying from a Major Airport
Return to Sleap from Liverpool where you landed in the previous lesson. However, it isn't quite a simple reverse of the last flight as you will find out. The main difference is that you need to learn and practice the procedure for departing from a major airport which is different from that for smaller airfields.
