As an Approved Training Organisation a Risk Assessment has been drawn up in line with Government directives.

NOTE - Check rides/training flights are for the benefit of the licence holder and will be on a one to one basis to reduce the footfall through the club premises and reduce the exposure of the staff and others. No passengers will be allowed for check rides or flying lessons whilst restrictions are in force. The club must focus on flight training for now so the premises cannot be used for social gathering or as a waiting area. The carrying of passengers once a PPL is current will then be the pilot in command’s decision.

You will be required to:

1. Have your Licence (PPLs), Medical and Log Book available for certification.

2. Have your own headset and PPE (face covering minimum, disposable gloves recommended).(Instructors will have additional PPE as required by CAA directive.)

3. Sign a declaration of freedom from Covid19 symptoms or contacts and be willing to have your temperature checked (Non-contact equipment).

4. Maintain Social distancing both in the building and outside
