Discover one of life's great adventures


Learning to fly can be a considerable investment. The primary determining factor of the length of time a course will take and the cost incurred will be the regularity of the flying. If you fly regularly the knowledge and experience gained is more likely to be retained, which reduces the need for remedial flights and catch up theory lessons at our ground school

Regular training leads to quicker learning which will minimise the overall cost
