Re: Questions for the Pilots here

To quote a friend: if it flies, floats or f**ks, it's cheaper to rent.

My father could have afforded a new plane at most points of his almost 50 years of flying but always chose to be a member of a flying club instead, which granted him access to planes at a preferential rate. All you have to worry about is to clean it, refuel, fill in the logbook and put it back in the right spot after use. If there is any issue, you report it and someone sorts it out (obviously, if you caused damage, you pay for the repair but for the usual gremlins that can appear, it's sorted). The main downside is that you can't always have a plane if you want it, especially at short notice on a weekend.

Radio comms is in English and you have to prove that you are proficient in English anyway.
