We appreciate that everyone has different requirements.

Our instructors tailor a flying program designed to give you the best chance of making progress.

Our courses are for pilots and prospective pilots of all levels; from those looking for a different holiday
experience with some flying included, through to those with specific flying goals in mind.

Summer Weekday Courses

To speed up your progress, we use a combination of: –

  • Daily briefings, outlining the plan for the day
  • Ground School, to cover the essential theory
  • Simulator, to lay the foundations of a new skill or to practice flying a task
  • Gliders and Motor Glider, to perfect skills and bring them all together in the air

A typical day...

… starts with breakfast from 8:00am followed by the morning briefing at 9:00, then unpacking the hangar.

We start flying as soon as practical, and after a break for lunch, continue until late in the afternoon.

When the weather doesn’t play ball, we use our lecture facilities for ground briefings and our simulator for extended stick time.

The flying day finishes when the hangar doors are closed and the end of day debrief is complete.

Once the day’s flying related activities are complete, the bar is open and dinner is served.

How much does it cost?

The headline price for a standard (4:1) five-day course at the start and during the main season are £525 and £660 respectively.

During the main summer season we offer a premium (3:1) five-day course which is priced at £795.
