Trial Lesson Experience Vouchers  

Lydd Aero Club Vouchers are valid for 6 months but the Club intends to honour all valid vouchers by extending their validity for the period of the current lock-down - now over 6 months. Vouchers are still being sold via the website and issued by email if you want one as a present or even yourself. NOTE - still at last years prices but will have to go up soon.

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.

We started Trial Lesson Experiences on 1st September for one-to-one lessons, that is Student and Instructor. Observer/Passengers on these flights are not allowed yet. Details on next button.

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   

Training (Subject to any new lock-downs by H.M. Government)

We are now taking all Students including beginners. Trial Lesson Experiences - See above

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.

There are many who say precautions are unnecessary and we should just “carry on as before”.

As an Approved Training Organisation we must take every precaution to maintain the safety of Pilots, Students and Staff. Before dismissing these, please think very carefully about the already 47,000+ who have died in the last few months

Are you making this worse?
