The Introductory Lesson is the ideal way to experience flying in a light aircraft for the first time. Many people start with a introductory lesson and then decide whether or not flying is for them. Mind you many people have a introductory lesson just to experience the unequalled view and excitement that a flight in a light aircraft offers together with the opportunity to take the controls.

A PPL is a Private Pilots Licence. It entitles the holder to fly specific light aircraft, over most of the world. It has a few restrictions, although all PP’s (private Pilots) are aware of these. You can take various extra courses to add new ratings to your licence to remove these restrictions. These include; Instrument Meteorological Rating (IMC), Night Rating and an Aerobatics rating.

The IR (R) formerly "IMC" (Instrument Meteorological Conditions) course is aimed at UK PPL pilots and is valid in the UK only. It provides a fundamental understanding of instrument flying and navigation, and can greatly increase the accuracy and safety of any flight.

To enable the Private Pilot to fly at night, a course of 5 hours flying training is undertaken. The course will highlight the additional pre-flight considerations and differences involved in operating an aeroplane at night, as well as teaching the specific handling techniques required.
