The majority of our post lockdown intake have now reached success this past weekend. We would like to congratulate: Megan Melvin, Richard Dale, Anya Smith, Christopher Redmond and Ossi Rannikko for all passing their Private Pilot Licence skill test over the last weekend. All of theses students have shown an incredible attitude towards learning and attentiveness to airmanship. These candidates are now properly prepared to have a studious mindset for the near future looking at ATPL exams and also commercial flight training. The next step is for these candidates to officially be enrolled on our professional pilots degree, in which the first year these students will be in full time ground studying towards their first set of ATPL exams.

Well done! The journey to the flight deck has just began!


We also have more good news from a couple of degree students already in the system. Rachel Gilmour and Melville Mitchell on Sunday passed the commercial pilots licence skill test with examiner Ian Weinstein. Rachel and Melville have put in extreme work & preparation to receive great feedback from Ian. Always pleased to hear the Tayside method produces the best! fantastic work you two! Massive congratulations, now both official commercial pilots is an amazing achievement!

However the work doesn't stop- Rachel and Melville are already booked into the next Flight Instructor(FI) course starting soon. Shortly after this 30 hour course they will taken onto the Tayside Aviation flying programme to start instructing the PPL. This point of view gives the P1 extremely valuable decision making and command skills crucial to the operation of any airline.
