Take our specially prepare package, where we train you to a level of flying solo in an aircraft. This might be great opportunity to start with aviation and fly the aircraft solely by yourself.

  • Learn how to control aircraft
  • Fly basic manevouers
  • Go on a cross-country flight
  • Fly solo in an aircraft
  • *time required to solo flight is dependent per person

We try very hard to make sure our students complete their pilots licence courses in the minimum number of hours. We have very good instructors and the courses are both carefully structured to make this possible.

We must however caution that if you are not able to maintain continuity, inevitably the revision element of each lesson will take slightly longer and this may well mean that you need some additional hours to reach the required standard before being ready to take your skills test.

Certainly we aim to produce the very best pilots so that we can be proud they are graduates of our school.

Aircraft we use

We'll match you with the best possible fleet for starting your journey in aviation.

The Cessna 140 is the perfect training aircraft for somebody wanting to master tailwheel flying (typically aerobatic pilots). It is fantastic for teaching the basics of flying that will stay with you forever.

The PA-38 and C-152 on the other hand are much more modern nose wheel aircraft, pretty much the same as that used by the RAF (quite different from the underpowered C140)

They are very comfortable aircraft and fast and is ideal for those not needing tailwheel skills. They are certainly easier to fly and quite high powered, this gives a good rate of climb that save you time in training. There is merit in trying both to understand the differences.
