Flying Clubs and Schools FAQ
A flying club is where a group of like-minded individuals interested in flying come together to access aircraft more affordably.
You can join most clubs for a small fee and they only charge very nominal monthly dues. You can also usually share pilot supplies that are provided by most clubs (such as headsets), have access to quality training, the club's aeroplanes and enjoy regular social events.
The purpose of a flying school is to teach students how to fly. This could be towards gaining a Private Pilots Licence (PPL) or taking your passion for flying that step further and becoming a commercial pilot.
Hiring an aircraft from a flying school or having access to an aircraft through a flying club are the most recognised ways of hiring aircraft. You can browse Aircraft For Hire from Flying Schools & Clubs on AvPay here
Yes, flying schools will usually be able to assist you in gaining your PPL. They typically have experience in teaching the core syllabus as well as providing you with access to suitably qualified training pilots for the practical elements of flying the aircraft.
There are many routes to achieving your PPL. With a minimum of 45 hours of flying time required you could achieve this in as little as 6 weeks on a fast-track residential course, or as long as 2 years if you chose to complete the syllabus around your own schedule.
No, you don’t need to own an aircraft to join a flying club.
Visiting a flying school for a taster lesson is the perfect way to begin your journey into flying. This will give you the chance to see first-hand if you like flying and wish to take it further. A qualified training pilot will guide you through the experience and at the end of your taster lesson you will receive a certificate, which then can be used towards your hour's requirements should you wish to pursue your PPL.
You don’t need any formal qualifications to become a private pilot, however passes in high school maths and English will be useful and may be a requirement to join some more advanced flying courses.
