We have adopted a system of one duty instructor per day, as noted in first column of bookings system:

when the duty instructor is completely booked for the day we have the option of asking a second instructor or examiner to attend. This it to reduce footfall to a minimum and ensure social distancing throughout. Please follow the direction signs, requirement of masks and social distancing requirement.

If there are any specific questions about Trial Lessons, Training or Aircraft Hire please don’t hesitate to ask.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Headsets will no longer be available for loan for the foreseeable future. Trial Lessons will use one set which will be specially sanitised after each use as will the aircraft. PPL students may 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. Face masks REQUIRED throughout the airport buildings.

Everyone read this  CAA advice  - Back to flying
