IMPORTANT INFORMATION: PLEASE READ!

  • You must be aware that the sport is very weather dependent and we cannot fly in rain or brisk/strong winds.  We therefore ask you make sure you are in touch with our duty instructor the day before your course commences. We will usually text you the evening before, to confirm the suitability of the weather conditions.  We will give you our experienced judgement in the interests of your safety and our decision is final. 
  • If your training day is cancelled, please re-book within 1 month.  If the weather conditions change during your training day, you will be given credit for the day(s) lost and can re-book the extra day(s) to complete your course. However, please be reasonable and aim to complete your Student Pilot or Club Pilot course within 12 months from commencement and take any credit day(s) within 1 month of cancellation.  If you do not complete your course in the specified period and your course straddles two seasons, you may be charged a surcharge.
  • Please note that NO REFUNDS ARE GIVEN, only credit day(s) provided for day(s) lost due to adverse weather conditions. Courses do not have to be taken on consecutive days and can be taken on any flyable day during the following weeks, subject to availability.
  • Please note that the flying season tends to commence in March and runs through to October.  We strongly advise all customers to book early in the season, in order to maximise the chances of you completing your course within the period.
