COVID ADVICE:  Adhering to Government and relevant CAA advice regarding “Hands, Face, Space” we are open for business and flying. However, to protect our members, staff and community we would ask that if you or anyone in your ‘bubble’ is experiencing any of the COVID symptoms or are not well please do not visit the school or airport.


With over 30 years experience, Blackbushe School of Flying prides itself in striving for “Excellence in Aviation”.

We offer attractive discounts for introductory trial lessons and flight training for the initial issue and renewals of Private Pilots Licence (PPL), Light Aircraft Pilots Licence (LAPL), Night Ratings and IR(R) Ratings.

For those with either a PPL or LAPL we offer several membership options from Day membership to our very attractive Fly at Cost membership – a monthly subscription (12 month minimum contract) which includes free Blackbushe landings and very competitive hourly wet hire rates; £95 for a Cessna C152 and £139 for a Piper Warrior PA28 161 (VAT included). Hour Building packages are also available.


Our primary focus remains on you, as an Individual, meeting your needs and requirements with enthusiasm and passion being at the heart of our school.


We come thoroughly recommended and can provide references from past students and current members on request.
