Student training currently suspended - You will be in Phase 2 & 3 but we may be able to accommodate your ground exams

Trial Lesson Experience Vouchers   -  We do not anticipate being able to re-start until removal, or substantial innovations to implement the social distancing rules are made. WATCH THIS PAGE

The Club intends to honour all valid vouchers issued by Lydd Aero Club by extending their validity for the period of the current lock-down - now approaching 3 months. Vouchers are still being sold via the website and issued by email if you want one as a present. We shall notify on this site when we will be continuing Trial Lesson Experiences.

Vouchers issued by Acorne/Virgin can only be extended by that company and holders of those vouchers should contact that company if an extension is required.

Many pilots licences/ratings will be out of currency and they will require check-outs by instructors and/or examiners.

 CLICK to read Phase One

Read the “Phase One” link above if you need a check out. Look for available slots, instructors and last minute changes to bookings on:

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Headsets will no longer be available for loan for the foreseeable future. We will be able to help a few students by selling a small number of those previously available for loan but many will want to buy their own new sets. We can order via a catalogue choice if you wish.

Face masks and gloves. You must bring and wear a face-covering for use whilst in the aircraft for any training. Gloves are recommended but optional.

All pilots read this  CAA advice  - Back to flying            and this          

UPDATE Wednesday 1st July 2020

Light at the end of the Coronavirus Tunnel

There have been comments from many that all the fuss over the current pandemic is unnecessary and we should just “carry on as before”. As an Approved Training Organisation we must show that every precaution is being taken to maintain the safety of Pilots, Students and Staff. Even if you are not concerned for your own safety, before dismissing these precautions, please think very carefully about the already 41,000 who have died in the last few months and whether your actions could make this worse.



Our local Medical Examiner for Pilots (Dr Ian McKenzie) informs us :

Dear All - Just to let you know the CAA has given us permission to start seeing pilots again so we are restarting our clinics.  Book in the normal way. Regards, Dr Ian Mckenzie -

New CAA Directive “Following the Prime Minister’s earlier announcement about changes to lock-down measures , I can confirm that the reopening of GA businesses and the safe restart of General Aviation dual and instructional flights will be permitted from 4 July 2020 in England. In accordance with new guidance.
