Our comprehensive training facility has been designed specifically to train those who wish to gain their Private Pilot's Licence efficiently while saving money and becoming a better and safer pilot.

"Having been in awe of flight from a very young age and now having taught many people to fly, the thrill of flying a plane and satisfaction gained from performing a great landing even in challenging weather is, I believe, unparalleled, and an experience I would like to make accessible to all aspiring pilots, young and old."
