Who can learn to fly ?

Virtually anyone can learn to fly and there is no lower age limit, however you need to be able to reach the controls to have lessons - you only need normal health and eyesight (with or without glasses) in order to pass the medical requirements which will vary according the licence you wish to attain.

Most potential pilots start with a trial lesson or air experience flight in one of our training aircraft. 

There are no age limits for flying lessons with an instructor,  you can log hours towards your PPL as soon as you can fully control the plane, at 16 you can fly solo and hold a full  PPL at 17

How much will it cost?

The national average for the number of hours taken to attain a PPL(A) is 55 hours, the duration and the cost will come down to how much time and effort you can put into your training. The time you leave between lessons will have a direct effect on how long and how much it will ultimately cost you. 

Pay as you go?

We do not ask for money up front!  This method means you stay fully in control of the costs, you can stop and start whenever you need to. The total cost will also depend on the aircraft type you select to train in. 

Do I need special skills to learn to fly?

Absolutely NOT!!!! 

What can I do with my licence, once I have it?

Use it for pleasure. Lunch in France in an hour! Watch the traffic queues on route to major attractions as you speed past above it it all. Take your friends away, or visit distant ones on a more regular basis.Use it for business? Enstone to Aberdeen in less than 2 hours hold several productive meetings and be home for tea and medals, try doing that with a commercial operator. Put it all down to expenses and best of all you fly for free!!!! 

After completing my PPL how much will cost to hire an aircraft for a day, weekend or week?

You may rent the aircraft for the day, weekend or week and will generally be only charged for the actual flight time, however there are some exceptions! There may be a minimum number of flight hours per day, weekend or week requirement.
