How much does Learning to Fly cost?

FLYING rates include landing fees at Sywell; these can be a significant extra cost at other airfields, particularly when you are at the circuit flying stage of your training, when you will be making multiple landings each hour. You will rarely if ever be caught in any significant queue of other aircraft on the ground, which can be another hidden cost at other airfields.

To train with us you will need to join the Flying Club as a full flying member; this gives you access to all the club's facilities including flying instruction, ground briefings and computers to log on to weather and planning information. All prices include VAT where applicable.
