|This year... learn to fly!
The PPL (Private Pilot's Licence) and LAPL (Light Aircraft Pilot's Licence) courses are your 2 options if you are looking to learn to fly a fixed-wing aeroplane. For the Gyrocopter there is the PPL(G). The courses are tailored to you, so they start when you are ready and you book to fly when you are free! We suggest you come in, call or email to discuss your course structure as everyone is different.

All flight costs are included, and from £139 an hour we think it's very competitive.

With amazing mountains and glens and open airspace that allows us to fly wherever we want at whatever speed and height!
