Come flying!

Oh dear, this is also sold! I keep this page as a nice memory of some wonderful times... converted to past tense...

I used to own this beautiful Socata TB200 GT aircraft, 4/5 seater, 200hp injection, fixed gear single.
Cruise speed up to 130 kts (150 mph). Very comfortable and well-equipped.

It was available for hire near Oxford: solo hire, or I could have flown you. I have a Private Pilot's Licence
with IMC (can fly on instruments) and night rating. Oxford looks great from the air!

>>> so does Cornwall - I now live in St Ives! Pop down to Perranporth and we'll go for a ride there. >>> I now live in Bath and do not fly at all!
