Aircraft Hire

When comparing our rates with other clubs/schools, bear in mind that we charge on tacho time rather than 'chock to chock'. The difference is roughly between time the aircraft is airborne rather than when it starts/finishing moving. This typically reduces the cost of an hour’s flight by around 10-15% and translates to a 45 hour block time training course being charged at less than 40 hours tacho time. There are no home-based landing fees.

Price per tacho hour (equates to approximately 1hr 10 mins logbook time).

Service               PA28 Warrior - £150 per tacho hour.    PA28 Archer - £165 per tacho hour.

Civilian               PA28 Warrior - £170 per tacho hour.    PA28 Archer - £185 per tacho hour.

Costs of training with Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC)

Current and ex-service personnel can use ELCs to fund some of their training.  Standard Learning Credits (SLC) can also be used.
