I thought I would share a small part of the email I received yesterday after my Ops Manual was accepted. ".....before booking your practical assessment which can be booked in Somerset, Kineton or Burton upon Trent by following the link provided below.......Please note that the Burton upon Trent site may offer earlier availability than the other options. Please also note that flight operations examinations booked at the Norton St. Phillip site or Ireland and Scotland carry an additional surcharge of £200 + VAT." I live in Scotland, these charges have never been mentioned to me before despite sitting my ground school training in Scotland, the closest place for me that wont charge another £240 is a 600 mile round trip. I know Euro-USC is a bit of a recurring joke here with the more experienced members but I feel this is useful information for anyone thinking about using them that lives anywhere but central and southern England.
