Our fleet is based on Piper Aircraft. The basic trainer is the Piper PA 28 Warrior and you will stay with that aircraft for consistency until you reach LAPL/PPL standard. After that, you can graduate to a more complex aircraft such as the Piper PA 28 Arrow or the PA44 Seminole Multi-Engine Aircraft. Because they are all based on the same airframe the transition between all the aircraft is very easy. We also have an approved simulator for the BE76 Duchess for more advanced pilots training for the Multi-Engine instrument rating or for renewal or revalidation of their licences.
We also operate a fleet based on Cessna, with the option of a 2 seater Cessna 150 and 4 Seater Cessna 172N
PA-28 Warrior G-CKIO
The Piper PA 28 is the workhorse of flying training at PPL or LAPL level around the world. It comes in many forms. The one we focus on so that students can be sure of consistency in training is the PA 28 Warrior of which we have 4. It can be used for basic training as well as more advanced training, hours building and travelling further afield. It is also a very flexible 4 seater aircraft.
PA 28 Arrow
The Piper PA 28R Arrow is used for the next level up in flying. It is a complex aircraft with a retractable undercarriage and a variable pitch propellor. This is used for training after you have achieved PPL level and wish to go on to more advanced training for a CPL (commercial pilots license), FIC (Flying Instructor Qualification), Instrument Rating or ATPL.
PA 44 Seminole
The Piper Seminole is a twin-engine aircraft used for the final stage for students wanting to obtain their commercial license or ATPL. On it you learn to fly and handle two engines and obtain your multi-engine rating. As a piper aircraft, it will be familiar to all those students who trained with us on our PA28 aircraft.
For more advanced training we have a fully approved FNPT2 simulator. When you graduate to flying a multi-engine aircraft you can learn many of the basics and procedures without leaving the ground. Moreover, these hours spent learning on the simulator will count to the hours required for the instrument rating licence. The simulator can also be used for those who already hold a multi-engine instrument rating for revalidation.
