Many licences are now issued in accordance with European standards and are equally valid and recognised throughout Europe. These are known as EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) licences and we provide courses for the following:

 

The Private Pilot’s Licence is recognised worldwide and can be ‘built on’ with extra ratings and privileges. It is the first step towards a commercial licence and a career in aviation.

 

Available for aeroplanes, helicopters, balloons and gliders, the concept behind the LAPL was to create a simplified licence with a shorter training course and less onerous medical standards. In the case of aeroplanes it is limited to a maximum take-off weight of two tonnes and no more than three passengers. With some extra training it can be upgraded to the PPL.

 

We offer a training course to earn a pilot's licence to fly small, nimble and fun Gyrocopter aircraft. 

 

We conduct Night Rating training to allow a pilot to fly at night. This rating can be added to either the PPL or LAPL.

 

PPL holders can train to fly in poor weather conditions and earn an Instrument Rating (Restricted). Unfortunately a LAPL holder cannot add an Instrument Rating (R) to their licence.

 

We hold a Mountain Flying Course to give pilots an appreciation of techniques employed to fly in mountainous terrain safely.

 

We offer the unique opportunity to do beach landing training at Barra Airport, the only commercial beach-based airport in the world.

 

We also offer training for people who regularly travel with pilots as a passenger to better understand what a pilot is doing and train them on the basics of aircraft control and radio communications.
