Andrewsfield Aviation like to offer friendly but professional flight training at all levels. They provide training for the Light Aircraft Pilot’s Licence (LAPL) and the Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) aboard their fleet of Cessna C152 and Piper PA28 aircraft.

For these licences candidates need to complete a minimum of 30 or 45 hours respectively and pass 9 written exams on the various ground school subjects.

The final step before gaining your Pilot’s Licence is the Skills Test during which your flying ability will be tested by an examiner. But don’t be daunted – their instructors will be there to guide you and mentor you every step of the way.

PPL Achieved

Once you are the proud owner of Private Pilot’s Licence you’ll free to take friends and family on trips of your own choosing.

As your confidence and skills develop you’ll soon be able to fly further afield. For example, you could fly to popular destinations like Le Touquet in northern France, only 1 hour and 15 minutes from Andrewsfield. Stop there for lunch and fly back in time for tea.

One major advantage of learning at Andrewsfield is that home landing fees are included in the lesson price. Many other flying schools charge landing fees in addition to your normal lesson price.

Andrewsfield was the choice of Paul Bonhomme to renew his Flight Instructor Rating. Paul Bonhomme was one of the stalwarts of the Red Bull Air Race series. He announced his retirement from the championship just days after securing a record-breaking third title at the 2015 Series finale in Las Vegas.

Additional Training at Andrewsfield Aviation

In aviation the learning and developing never ends and they offer further instruction for Instrument IR(R) /IMC training, a Night Rating, and an Aerobatic Rating. You can even go for a Multi Engine Rating in our own Beech Duchess B76 aircraft.

If your ambitions include teaching then they can provide you with a Flight Instructor Course (FIC) which is open to PPL and CPL pilots. However if you don’t want to commit to the full FIC course and if you have at least 300 hours logged as Pilot in Command you can opt for the Class Rating Instructor (CRI) course which will enable you to perform type conversions, check outs, and refresher training.

Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) training is also available and is normally carried out using our Piper Arrow PA-28R-200 aircraft.

Trial Lesson Gift Vouchers & Hour Building

If you’re looking for a gift with a difference then why not buy one of their Trial Flying Lesson vouchers. The lucky recipient will have the opportunity to take control and fly the aircraft, and will be presented with a Certificate of Completion to mark the event.

Finally, they can also offer flight training and hour building at our satellite flight school in Naples, Florida where we can also take you from zero hours right up to EASA/FAA CPL/ATPL licences.

Saling Airfield, Essex

Saling Airfield is a small general aviation airfield located in the village of Great Saling, Essex, England. The airfield is home to a number of light aircraft and is used for private flying and flight training.

The airfield was originally built by USAAF engineers during the Second World War and was used by both the RAF and the United States Army Air Forces. Various USAAF squadrons operated from this airfield including heavy bombers sent on daylight raids over Germany right up to the end of the war. The RAF’s including visits by numbers 19, 65 and 122 Squadrons.

My first flight was in a Bell 47-D helicopter in 1966. I gained a PPL in 1991, a Permission for Aerial Work (PfAW) with a drone in 2013, and a City & Guilds in Aviation Studies in 1990.
