As per the Department for Transport guidance we will be recommencing all training and private hire from the 12th April. The rules will be much the same as they were after the first lockdown. Please find the updated guidance attached.
All licence holders looking to private hire aircraft will require a check ride with one of our instructors before being able to fly again.
We will once again be accepting bookings made for dates on and after the 12th April, for both lessons and private hire. To book in, just give us a call or go on the website.
In preparation for this return to flight we will be holding a series of four seminars, accessible on Youtube and available to everyone for free. Hosted by three of our instructors, these are designed to help everyone who is looking to return back to the skies to refresh their skills after the long break from flying. We recommend you watch at least the presentations applicable to you.
You can tune in to watch these seminars followed with a Q&A, to answer any questions you have on the topic, by using the links below on the date and time listed. Alternatively, you can watch the recording afterwards at any point via our Youtube channel.
