  1. Absolutely correct, but there are a great number of private pilots and small planes, flying circuits around the Island for pleasure etc all under VFR, so I'm kinda hoping to go along those lines with ATC. I'll be honest, I'm expecting it to be a "no" but still holding out hope, and doing lots of reading and research in the mean time.
  2. Indeed, I've flown my drone around most parts of the Island and there is some incredible scenery. Would love to get some positive vibes from ATC, but as yet, they've not even acknowledged my email.
  3. Thanks for the replies, there is a paragliding club and as you say, they are restricted to certain cliff areas and 500ft, which isn't really what I'm looking to get in to
  4. Hello all, Just a quick hello from an aviation enthusiast, who really wants to get into PPG, however, I have a pretty major hurdle in that I live within Class D airspace, and getting off the Island with any regularity is VERY expensive. I've written to local ATC to see what the possibilities would be of any kind of permit/exemption etc to allow me to get airborne (post training obviously), but curious if a) there are any other pilots from the Channel Islands in here and b) if anyone else flys within Class D (or other restricted airspace) and what arrangements/extra gear etc they had to go through to get permission. I have a pretty good relationship with ATC, as I'm a former professional drone pilot (BNUC-S, CAA permit) so I'm hopeful they may find a way to accommodate my madness. Anyway, just thought I'd say hi :) Cheers Steve
