Return to Flying
We have finally received the news that we have all be waiting for that we can return to flying on 4th July. It will be a phased return with PPL check outs first, followed by students and finally trial flights.
The reason for this phased return is to limit the number of people using the aircraft and office area during the day and at any one time. This will also allow us to assess the measures we have put in place. Once the PPLs are checked out and able to fly again the instructors can concentrate on flying with students. It also allows those pilots requiring hours towards licence revalidation to get those done sooner rather than later. We all hope that there will not be a return to any form of lockdown but in case there is I would encourage those of you with a PPL to keep current so that if we have to go back to solo flying only, you can continue to fly.
Students and members - Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) will be sent out to everyone when they are booked in along with a copy of the Flying Order Book (This can also be found on the members tab above). You will require a minimum of a face mask, gloves and your own headset and your temperature will be taken on arrival with a non-contact thermometer.
We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back and hope we can finally enjoy some good weather and flying.
In the past we have always honoured expired vouchers and it is our hope that we will be able to do that going forward.
(Please note that if your voucher was brought through a third party you will need to contact the retailer for their policy regarding covid-19)
At the moment we do not know when we will be permitted to start flying trial flights again and in fairness to our customers we do not feel that it is right to take money for a product we are unable to supply at the present time.
However, if you would like to support we ask that you make your own vouchers to give to friends and family (rather than pay us at this time) and then pay us when we are able to offer the flights again. That way you know your money is safe and we will have business when we are allowed to start flying trial flights again. We can give you a guide as to the prices of flights as they stood when lockdown occurred but can not guarantee those prices going forward as we, like everyone else, have no idea of what effect this present situation will have on our business.
