About Paul

I specialise in day trips for families of 4 or 5 (weight dependent) for a really fun family day out! Look at my flight listings for popular suggestions, or if there is a destination you have in mind not listed let me know and I will add it. Please contact me first before booking to check availability of aircraft. ---------------- Hi, I am a good safe friendly pilot flying for fun, looking to share my experiences with others on a cost sharing basis. I fly several different types of aircraft, 4-6 seat, single and multi engine propeller aircraft. I generally select an aircraft appropriate to the passengers and route planned, but if you prefer a specific aircraft this can certainly be arranged depending on availability. The aircraft vary in size, speed and cost, as well as how much weight they can carry. Generally for 2 passengers it's a Piper Archer, for 3, the Cessna 182 may suit better, and for 4-5 passengers the Cherokee 6 is required. Twin engine aircraft are overall larger, more comfortable, and have the benefit of being able to continue flight even on only 1 engine so there is an additional safety factor built in. I originally trained in the US where I obtained my FAA PPL (ASEL) and also Instrument Rating (IR). I also hold EASA SEP, MEP, Night and IMC/IR(R) ratings. If I have not listed a specific location or experience you are interested in, please do ask! All my flights are flexible so please contact me so we can make specific arrangements. Check my feedback too from others who have flown with me, you wont be disappointed! Any questions? Do ask me! Please note all my flights are minimum 2 passengers sharing. 4 seat aircraft have maximum 3 passengers sharing but this depends on weight. Sometimes a larger aircraft will be required to carry the weight required, and this will cost a little more. For Family trips we go in the 6 seat aircraft which requires a minimum of 4, maximum 5, though this is also weight dependent.

    Solent (Lee) Airport - Family day trip to the beach

    My three boys and myself arranged a flight with Paul to Lee-On-Solent that was absolutely fabulous! Paul made the trip both very enjoyable and easily accessible. Finding Paul through Wingly was nothing short of providential and every aspect of the journey met and exceeded expectations. This was our first time taking a private aircraft and that was particularly enjoyable. The highlight, it must be said, was that my eldest, who has wanted to be a pilot since he was a toddler, got to sit with Paul ...

    Lille - Day return

    I recently had the pleasure of flying privately on an aircraft with the lovely Paul and Neel. This was an unforgettable experience, From the moment I arrived, Paul & Neel went above and beyond to ensure that me and my partner were satisfied and comfortable. Paul was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable about the aircraft. We travelled from the UK to France in 1 hour 15 minutes. The turbulence was a little scary but Paul & Neel reassured us that it was absolutely normal & that we had nothing t...

    Isle of Wight - Family trip (for up to 5)

    What a fantastic day flying with Paul to the Isle of Wight! He was superb from the moment we arrived and made a couple of nervous passengers in our group feel at ease. It was a blustery day but somehow both landings were silky smooth, very impressive! The plane was also very comfortable. I’d definitely recommend taking a flight with Paul!

    Le Touquet (France) - Family Trip (for up to 5)

    I organised this trip for my children and their spouses; they had a brilliant day. Paul was very helpful in the planning stage and always responded quickly to queries. On the day Paul was very informative and efficient and kept the group aware of potential timings (there was a short delay due to cloud). He accommodated the group's plan for the day and never made them feel rushed. The equipment provided was excellent. Paul was friendly, with a good sense of humour and was always happy to ans...
