PPL - Pilot - Share a flight around Zurich

Dear Pilots!

I have recently moved to Zurich for my work.
In August I passed the PPL (very recent I agree) and I am looking for some other pilot to share flights (and cost ;-)) around Zurich as I would like to discover the area.

I have seen some "aeroclubs" around like:
MFGZ in Kloten
Wangen-Lachen
EFOS

As I don't have a car, Kloten is easier for me. But I am open to any suggestions.

And btw, are the hourly cost including fuel? In Belgium it includes the fuel most of the time...

Thanks for your messages,

Cheers,

Mathieu

Hi Mathieu,

I found your post through a search. Are you still looking for pilots in the area?

Best

Hi Christian,

Thanks for your message. I am currently flying in a club in Mulhouse / LFGB (it is a bit far) but nice atmosphere and surely lower cost than around Zurich.

Are you flying here around?

I fly out of LSZH Hausen am Albis. Costs are OK by Swiss standards I think. The flying club http://albiswings.ch/ is non-profit so just needs to cover costs. I mostly fly Archer or Aquila, although the fleet recently got an impressive update, a Mooney.

We can go share a flight if you like. Cold winter days can be spectacular from the air, mountains with a dust of fresh snow... So, if anyone reads this and wants to be a passenger on a scenic flight above the stunning Swiss scenery, post below

Yes, I did my PPL Training with Albis Wings in Hausen am Albis LSZN. Can highly recommend them. Great people there, too. Anything specific you are interested in?

I believe Dubendorf is the nearest to town, not sure which club is operating there.
Great museum, too.

Any good school near Lausanne. I have got a valid class 2 medical certificate issued in the UK, is it valid here? Or do I have to go for a fresh one here in Switzerland?

Depends... If you want to get your Swiss licence, you need a Swiss medical. If you just want to fly here, you are fine with your EASA licence, no new medical needed.
