Si, started flying flex wing microlights in 1993 and became an instructor in the middle of 2014.

To date 780 Instructional hours, over 2.5 years, with a number of students through the General Skills Test , no fails, or even partial fails, with an average time of 31.5 hours (the national average is 36 hours ) At the moment we have 6 students at various stages of the course which we hope to increase with the introduction of Jarvy Aviation.

We are based at Eshott Airfield, which has good facilities for easy learning and two tarmac runways which is ideal for teaching people to fly. Should you go on to own your own aircraft there is good, reasonably priced hangarage availabe
