To book your date of training (payment required - cheques made payable to the instructor Ron Freeman) please give us a ring on the numbers above or email Once we have confirmed your booking we ask students to ring us the night before we arrange when and where we will be training - also to check the weather. This is a weather dependant sport and sometimes we have to adjust the time of training. Sessions normally take place between 10am - 4pm.

Being an outdoor sport, it is very important to stay warm and dry. 2 / 3 layers of clothing are better than one thick woolly sweater. Footwear should be waterproof with good ankle support. NO hooks on boots as these are a potential hazard.

Please bring with you food and drink - breaks are essential to the day. Please bring a notepad and pen as there are theory elements to the training.

You don't have to be big and strong to be a pilot, but an average level of fitness is beneficial. The training will be at your pace and we promise it to be an extremely exhilirating experience you will never forget!
