Meeting Arrangements (for clients booked in for  tandem flights, lessons eg Funday, 2, 4, 8 day flight training):                                              

The flying site for each day will depend on the wind direction. To save time we try to meet as near the flying site most likely to be suitable for that day at one of 6 locations. (see below) You must phone 0844 357 1059  (In emergencies or if telephone lines are out of order call 0709 200 9133) between 8.00 - 8.30 each training day.

Then follow the directions for one of these meeting points. Directions, maps & Meeting Points

EACH TRAINING DAY
No matter whether you are flying tandem or taking a lesson including Funday lessons. You should  phone 0844 357 1059 on your training day between 08.00 - 08.30,  a voice mail message will be left  informing you when and where we are going to meet, which will depend, of course, on the weather.
There will be 3 possibilities:

  1. We are meeting at 10.30 at designated site.

  2. We are deferring the start to wait for better weather, please call back later today for further information

  3. Its a washout, course cancelled, please call back during opening hours to rebook

We normally meet at 10.30am. However, we can start and finish later

If the day is cancelled this does not mean that any other day is also cancelled. If you are booked for the following day, eg a Two Day course, please call each day. We cannot guarantee the weather and therefore cannot guarantee consecutive days.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR EVENINGS FREE. Most days training will finish around 4pm, but we sometimes have to carry on training well into the evening, if the weather has held us up during the day. Please be prepared for this - obviously we cannot predict when it may happen

These instructions apply to all flight training including Tandem flights. We are unable to guarantee the exact time of any flight due the vagaries of the weather. We will endeavour to have your flight completed before mid afternoon  but cannot guarantee this. If you are unable to stay beyond 4pm, please let us know, at the time of booking, so we can keep your instructor updated.

It will be of great help to you if you have done some preparatory studies. Those on a one or two day course should purchase our training video. Those on more serious courses should purchase the Training Resource pack.
