GVC Practical Assessment

Well it was my GVC practical assessment yesterday.
I was a bundle of nerves and my safety brief was more of a safety waffle.
Flying was not too bad.
The important thing was that i passed.


Nice one, well done :clap: :clap:

Well done mate :clap:

Congratulations :+1:

Well done @BrianS.

My GVC flight assessment has been put on hold due to Lockdown II :frowning:


Well done Brian.
I’ve just got my GVC OE practical / flight test left to do. . .

It’s time to have a drink :tumbler_glass:well done

Congratulations :partying_face: on your flight assessment was your course lay out in the T shape? And we’re did you position your secondary landing spot :smiley:

Congratulations, @BrianS!

Thank you :sunglasses:

That happened to me twice, just managed to sneak it in before this lockdown. You will get there :+1: 2020 the year that just keeps on giving?

Thank you, I had more than one though :beer: :beer:

Hi secondary TOLP was place to the left of the primary TOLP as I had anticipated pedestrian incursions from a nearby footpath (although cordoned off).

Emergency procedures got real when a plane from the Sibson parachute centre dropped a parachutist right in front of me but too far away to cause an issue, but still a distraction. Then the plane that dropped him flew a circuit and passed through my flight test from right to left at about 400ft !!

The training kicked in “phew” and I easily evaded him. So this stuff does happen in the real world. Still makes my hands shake when I think of it though :sweat_smile:


Congratulations :sunglasses:

Thanks all.

@Ned Luckily we just got this in. The second part of the training has been put back till sometime next year.
@Cikoy Yes the lay out was T ish. The secondary landing spot was in front of us as we where operating from a path and we where not allowed to use the fields for the secondary landing spot.

Anyway i’m happy that my hobby will become part of my job.

Got To wait for the CAA now. Still we have to get our stick time in.

Just completed another 8 days of training.
This time it was industrial inspections and surveying.
Learned a hell of a lot and finally got to fly in an industrial environment.
Thanks to Heliguy and C-Bird.

Best of all work is paying me to do this. :grinning:
