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 46,000+ who have died in the last few months.

 Are your actions making this worse?

Trial Lesson Experience Vouchers  

Subject to any additional lock-downs by HM Government there should not be many weeks now to re-start Trial Lesson Experiences.


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 over 4 months. Vouchers are still being sold via the website and issued by email if you want one as a present.

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.

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.
