    this will be the first time ...

    Hello everyone,

    Another day, another question. So, I have learnt to say:

    This is the first time I have flown.
    That was the first time I had flown.

    But what do I say for the future?

    This / That will be the first time ...I will fly / I have flown / will have flown / ...?

    And also, what is correct to say: This is the first time I have been in / to England.

    Thank you.
