For more detailed information about learning to fly and what is involved, please also see our separate pages on LAPL training and on PPL training.
Rates per hour for training (the discounted price is the price per hour from buying the training package - see above):
The tables above display our formal pricing structure that you can use to compare our prices with other companies. Realistically, however, quoted prices rarely tell the full story, so we have attempted below to provide an example of a "typical" PPL course, in a C152, to give you an idea of the real cost for budgeting purposes.
A bit like a TV licence – it doesn’t actually do anything but you have to have a medical certificate before we can send you solo.
Club membership (Annual membership pro-rata):
Membership runs from April to March and includes your insurance cover.
Forty-five hours flight training at discounted rate:
We aim to get you to test standard in 45 hours but do keep in mind that many people find that they need a few extra hours.
Landing and Circuit fees estimate:
You pay one landing fee per flight – on balance one landing per hour gives a reasonable estimate. Circuits depend on aptitude so estimated only.
Books and equipment:
There are 7 books to buy and a selection of flight and navigation equipment like charts and kneeboards.
Theory exams and radio telephony (RT) practical:
With a little industry it is perfectly possible to pass all nine written exams and the RT practical first time.
This estimate includes the examiner’s test fee and hire of the aircraft. Most of our students achieve a first-time pass.
There you have it – a bit more than the ‘quoted’ price but including all the little extras. If you compare our prices with others do check what’s included!

Redhill Aviation has extremely friendly staff and highly trained instructors!
I originally began my PPL course back in 2008 at Blackbushe Aviation, which back then was Redhill Aviation's sister company. After a fairly lengthy break due to my financial situation and moving, I decided to speak with Redhill about picking up where I left off in 2009.
I was informed that for my previous hours to be credited towards my PPL, I would need to apply to the CAA for an Exemption, who granted it and told me that this would only be valid until 29th September 2017.
The staff and instructors at Redhill Aviation relished the challenge to get me through the remainder of the course, non-stop throughout September, battling against the typical British Weather and managed to get me through the course, passing my Skills Test first time with a week to spare.

Excellent flying school. Very friendly staff, top instructors, good selection of aircraft and a super airfield to fly from. Definitely be going back to do some aeros!

Lovely people, very good organisation, very welcoming and managed to sort me out with a plane at very short notice for a whole weekend. Had a check flight today with Jim who was excellent. I will definitely come back!

PPL proficiency check - Just a short note to thank you for checking me out today Laurance. Your relaxed yet professional (and understanding!) approach very much appreciated. Thanks again.

PPL Training - Without a doubt, Redhill Aviation is the best flying club. I have been a flying student previously for achieving PPL in Scotland (used different airfields) and can say with my experience that Redhill is the best in all aspects. I achieved my PPL from Redhill. The staff are good and friendly. Instructors are very helpful and approachable. Everyone is very supportive. Experience flights for my friends have been great as well. Very professional and friendly club.

PPL Training - From my first email contact with Redhill Aviation, the team there have always been super friendly, efficient and professional. After booking a 30 minute trial flight with them I was hooked and am now about half way through my private pilot's licence course at Redhill.If you have ever dreamed of becoming a pilot or if you just want to experience the thrill of flight in a light aircraft, Redhill Aviation is a great place to start.

IMC lesson - Thank you Laurance for the lesson on Sunday, I loved it and it has only made me want to fly more.

PPL training - From first flight to Pilots Licence success, Redhill Aviation have been the backbone of my flying. They operate with a friendly club style vibe, whilst still giving the professional tuition you would expect from any flying school. At the club building you are greeted by friendly staff, there's always a cuppa on offer and a chat about something 'aviation'.The instructors are highly knowledgeable of the aircraft, flight operations and the local area. For most it's a passion not just a job and this certainly comes through in the training I received.I'd wholeheartedly recommmend this club for anyone from an experience flight, private pilot training and more!

In 2012 I retired after 43 years of professional flying. A few years later, missing recreational flying, I decided to reactivate my private licence. I flew a series of re-familiarisation flights (having not seen a light aircraft for 29 years!) followed by a 'skills test' with Redhill Aviation. Their training package was expertly tailored to my needs with comprehensive briefings and patient flying sessions conducted in an efficient and friendly atmosphere. Having instructed myself for many years, I can wholeheartedly recommend Laurance and his team. Why not try a trial lesson....?
David, 15 May 2016
Thank you Laurance for your help and I shall retain your contact information as a most helpful individual in this field.
