Here's what followers have to say:

Just wanted to touch base to say thanks for keeping us updated with your blog! I start with L3 on the 13th Feb and I honestly don't know how I would have gotten myself even close to being prepared with the information (or lack of) that we otherwise get. The detail you've gone into is tremendous and a help to anyone thinking of starting a course. Hopefully bump into you when you're back in Southampton. Hope your training is going well. All the best, S.

Hi George, super impressed with your blog and social channels. I've since bought the SkyTest software. Regards, J. (FTE Jerez Applicant)

Dear George, I cannot explain how helpful your blog has been for the Qatar MPL selection process. Kind Regards, H.

Hi George, I want to say a big congrats on passing your commercial pilots license skills test! I've become a big fan of your blog and I am due to attend Dibden Manor for group assessment and interview in the near future. Thanks again!

I am 18 years old and an aspiring pilot, looking to apply to CTC/L3 soon. I love your blog! It's really informative and has been a great help to me and. Thanks for all the tips and advice.

I've been reading your blog over the last couple of weeks, I have to say it has been the single biggest contribution of information regarding all aspects of the pilot journey that I've come across, and there's still more for me to read through which I look forward to! Great work! It's given me more insight and more questions to ask this Saturday when I'm going to an L3 open day.

Thank you for taking the time to make such an extensive website. It's one of the most helpful resources I've found for someone considering pilot training. Best of luck with the rest of your training.

Hi George! Thank you so much for all your advice and encouragement!! I came away from the assessment yesterday with very mixed emotions, put my head in my hands and made a noise like EEUUURRRGHHH!!!! But, I had an email this morning telling me that I've got a place on a training course!!!! So thank you again! Your blog and messages were instrumental in helping me prepare for the aptitude testing and day 2 assessment day!!!

Hi Pilot George! I'm absolutely loving your website, the blog entries are a real treat to read and the videos and pics really flesh out the programme and the experience you've had. I feel like I've been there with you, if only for a moment! Well done again, it's been a great help to me and many others - I'm not sure if you realise, but you are by now well-known by other applicants. All the ones I've met have read your blog, and the owners of Dale Farm asked me if I'd found you online yet! Best of luck for your upcoming CPL flight test!

Hi George! Brilliant blog, Congrats! You really do manage to bring your readers in on what I believe is the real life of a L3/CTS cadet; be it good, bad or ugly. Thank you for all the information you provide and keep going the good work! Cheers, Antoine (a 24yo French guy, starting the application process for Qatar MPL)
