Ground School Courses

These are usually conducted in the evenings and are an opportunity to meet other members.

For each course there is a nominal charge of £10 per person per session. All exams can be sat at the club and these incur a charge of £20 per exam, except R/T which incurs an additional £120 for the practical exam.

Age and Health

There is no minimum age to learn to fly, however you must be at least 16 years of age to be able to fly solo, and the minimum age for the issue of a licence is 17. You will also have to undergo a medical exam - the medical requirements are different for an EASA PPL to that of a LAPL, please enquire at the club.
