For each course there is a nominal charge of £40 including exam, except R/T which incurs an additional £50 for the practical exam.

Age and Health
Providing you are 14 years old or over, you can log all your flying lessons towards the PPL course, although you must be at least 16 years old to be able to fly solo. The minimum age for the issue of a PPL is 17 years. All pilots must undergo an aviation medical (Class 2 for PPL) conducted by a local CAA authorised medical practitioner. Providing you meet the JAR (Joint Aviation Rules) medical requirements, there is no upper age limit.

Midweek Flying Lessons

Although our club days are Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, in exceptional circumstances it may be possible to have a flying lesson on other days of the week but this is very dependent on instructor availability. Members wishing to arrange a lesson outside of club hours should contact one of our instructors here >
