Take to the skies and learn to fly with Scotland's Leading Flight School.

Learn from an experienced team of instructors who regularly fly for Jet2, Loganair, Flybe, Stobart & Gama.‚Äč

We’ve delivered training to hundreds of students with our modern fleet of Piper Tomahawks and Cessna 172 aircraft based at Glasgow International Airport.

From the Private Pilots License to more advanced instrument and night ratings, our team can help you on your way to a career in the skies.

Private Pilot License

A candidate for the PPL will complete 45 hours flying time, of which 25 hours will be with an instructor and at least 10 hours solo time.

There is 9 ground exams and a practical radio test.

This license allows the holder to act in command of a single engine piston aircraft with non-fee paying passengers.

Ultimately the Private Pilot License is the stepping stone to further ratings and a career in aviation.

Light Aircraft Pilot License

A candidate for the LAPL will complete 30 hours flying time, of which 15 hours will be with an instructor and at least 10 hours solo supervised time.

There is 9 ground exams and a practical radio test.

This license allows you to fly a single engine light aircraft with up to three passengers and is more aimed towards leisure flying.

Night Rating

The Night Rating course will allow you to achieve those sunset and sunrise flights and is based on 5 hours of night flying, including circuits and navigation.

There is a small amount of additional theoretical knowledge the candidate must learn, although there is no skills test or examination for this rating.

This rating is particularly useful in winter months when daylight is reduced.

Instrument Rating (Restricted)

The IR(R) Rating – also known as the IMC Rating – allows you to fly in more challenging weather conditions under Instrument Flying Rules.

The course consists of 15 hours of flight instruction along with ground lessons and is completed with a CAA IR(R) Rating Skills Test by an examiner.

The IR(R) Rating is for use within UK Airspace.
