Jan 15th 2010 1:40AM Hi everybody,
I'm from France and we do have a wonderful thing here : there is a free public flight school. It's called the ENAC and it will bring you from 0 hour to the full qualification. But as you would have guess they is few places. For instance this year only 38 (for over 2000 applications) . So I would like to know more about the private schools in Europe and how you can finance its.
Last year i had failed at the interview. I was probably a bit young by the school standards. What do personality do you think they are looking for in a flight school student ?
Anyway your posts are always great Kent and they are really helping me to persevere in this way.

Jun 24th 2009 1:36AM @About "free training", we have the same kind of system with Air France in France plus we have another public and totally free school called the ENAC. But if its pretty hard to go trough the selection process, this year 2100 persons tried and there is only 48 places. Now only 180 peoples remain in the selection and I'm in !
I hope you'll make it.
May 7th 2009 1:35AM Most of the Frenchs have a 1H or 1h30 lunch break at work. And if you have friends at home it's not uncommon to have a 3 hours meal.
Furthermore I agree with Olivier, French going to USA always thinks you eat so much their.
Apr 29th 2009 12:07PM I've a question about the "bounces", why does the instructor put his hand over the thrust levers after the rotation ? Is it a safety in case of abortion of the takeoff ? And do you practice aborted takeoff like fore light plane ?
Thank you for your cockpit chronicles and plane answer's it's very interesting.
Please tell me if I made mistakes I'm still learning English.
