no extra charge for 'repositioning flights'. Initial IMC/IRR, re-qualification,
PPL conversion training in particular is allowed by the CAA from
all our bases of operation, and this also enables us to offer interesting

This is not just a cost-effective solution to obtaining
the full European EASA private pilots licence, but also a personalised
cross-country navigation training programme. In particular we specialise
in licence Conversions from
NPPL(M) microlight; to NPPL(SEP) single engine; to EASA PPL(A), including
all foreign licence conversions, and Seaplane
training. Offered as one to three week course
modules throughout the year.
We also occasionally take a few ab-initio students through to the
NPPL(A) or JAR PPL(A) licence. For these courses some re-positioning
to a neighbouring licenced airfield is usually required.
UK PPL (Microlight), or Glider (BGA), SLMG to NPPL (SEP)
We can convert your NPPL (Microlight) including glider, or UK PPL
(M) licence (without restrictions) to an NPPL (SEP). You will need
to complete such flying training in a simple single-engine piston
aeroplane as is judged necessary by our FI/Examiner to achieve the
required standard to take the NPPL (SEP) navigation and general
handling skills tests.
You will also need to have at least 32 hours total flight time,
which may be a combination of both Microlight and simple SEP flying,
and obtain a pass in the JAR-FCL PPL (A) theoretical knowledge examination
(Aircraft Technical), together with a valid NPPL Medical Declaration
or JAR-FCL Class 1 or 2 medical certificate. We can also convert
licence holders of a PPL (M) with operating restrictions, and offer
Reviews for current PPL students. Contact
us for full details of these programmes.
FOREIGN (ICAO) LICENCES TO EASA - PPL(A)
We can convert all foreign licenses. This can be an FAA
(USA), or from any other ICAO State of the world - to the JAR PPL(A).
You can even finish your licence with us if you have started in
any other ICAO country - not many schools offer that!!
You need 100 hours of total flying time, which can include the training
hours towards your PPL(A) licence, and a valid medical class 2 (EASA).
You will normally have to do the following two Written
examinations (taken online):
* Human Factors and Perfomance, and
* Air Navigation Law
If you have less than 100 hours you have to do all NINE written
exams. We have the instructors and the examiners to do this - contact
us for more information! The CAA will charge their standard fee
for issuing the licence. We advise you about appropriate reference
materials, and how to do the exams. You also have to pass a flight
test (we will tell you the requirements). You can then apply for
a PPL-EASA licence issued by the CAA (UK Flight Authorities) accepted
in more than 30 countries. We are also recognised examiners in Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal.
RADIO NAVIGATION &
Our very popular
and Radio Nav Certificate Courses
can include a practical IFR continental checkout experience (eg
Cherbourg), on aircraft specially designed to do the job safely
and accurately. Training is usually conducted on a Piper Cherokee
PA28 (Arrow or Similar at some the lowest rates in the UK), equipped
with HSI and Garmin GNS430 Nav/Com/GPS. If you are already an experienced
VFR pilot with reasonable radio knowledge, we offer exceptional
value one-to-one personal tuition on this course. Differences
training to complex & high performance type is also
available as required. You may want to first try some pre-training
within the local Controlled Airspace in order to gain value from
the radio disciplines enforced during such flights. The IMC/IRR rating
can only be added to a UK issued licence, and for holders of other
licences we provide training and testing for all Licence
