Earlier in the week we mentioned how Gatwick closed due to an Air Canada Rouge 767 bursting a tyre on takeoff.
This meant Bournemouth became the home for several Gatwick based aircraft, with most departing on the day, several had to wait until the following day to head home.
We captured this Airbus A320 prior to departure yesterday, its rare to see British Airways aircraft at Bournemouth but not unheard of.
Bournemouth airport is a superb location to train at, with all the navigational aids on site, we start training from the minute the engines are turning.

Today was the day Pierre headed back in to the skies aboard our BE76 Duchess November November.
This was the first actual IFR flight he’s completed during his IR training, up until now he’s been flying our ALSIM, 30 hours of flying it to be exact.
He took to the skies with our famous instructor Blackadder 01, completing a varied mix of General Handling and tracking training. This all ended with his very first ILS back at Bournemouth.
Pierre is pictured prior to flight completing the ‘A’ check on the aircraft, specifically checking the oil levels to ensure the right quantity is aboard.

Its Monday morning and that means one thing, BCFT is a hive of activity with lots of fresh and eager students!
It will be no surprise either that Blackadder 10 is the first to get airborne with his CPL student Ben! Joining them on the Arrow flight is another CPL student, our former Ops Controller Farouq.
We encourage all of our students to backseat one another, helping to build understanding, confidence and knowledge. We believe it certainly helps!
With the sun out, so will Team Blackadder, so keep a look out for our blue and white planes today!

Heres Tango Zulu one of our Piper PA28’s used for PPL and CPL flight training at our Bournemouth base. The Airline Pilot Academy students also use the type for the Basic and NDB appreciation flight training before heading to the U.S.A.
Blackadder 26 has been busy flying on TZ this morning with James and Joel conducting FI flight training. We are currently in the process of training up two further Blackadder’s and in the not so distant future another FI course will run also.
Reflecting on the week, just as TZ reflects in the water, our new CPL and IR students have settled in well and completed the foundations ready to for the busy weeks ahead learning new skills and building confidence.

Farouq one of our current ME students and former Operations Controller has been busy today with Blackadder 16 learning the touch drills for the Asymmetric phase of the Multi Engine training.
They spent a while sitting in November November one of our Duchess aircraft going over the important steps for securing the live and dead engines for asymmetric flight, its not just a case of closing the throttle!
Farouq is progressing well, taking everything in his stride, paired with the legendary Blackadder 16 we are sure he wont face any issues!
