With bases at Glasgow International Airport and Cumbernauld Airport, Leading Edge Flight Training delivers professional flight training for the recreational flyer and those training towards a Commercial Pilot Licence. We also offer Introductory Experiences & Trial Flying Lessons.

Our team is made up of active and retired Commercial Pilots from some of the UK’s leading airlines, providing our students with a unique insight, standards and professionalism that will carry them throughout their potential future career in aviation.

Over the years, hundreds of student pilots have gained their wings at Leading Edge.

We also have 3 simulators which are used for introductory sessions, training support, and pilot development.

A fully supported Ground school is also provided for the theoretical exams at every stage of the journey.

In addition, our aircraft fleet is available for our members to hire for leisure flying or hour-building for those looking to develop their aviation career. We also provide facilities for aircraft owners who base aircraft at Glasgow International Airport.
