Forget about anyone that tell you "the UK airspace is more congested so if you fly in the UK you can fly anywhere blah blah"... get the basic training where it is cheap and you don't get cancellations and worry about improving your standard and ability to handle high workload later.
Thanks for the advice.....interesting
Might fit in with plans!!
