Aircraft Hire - PA28 Warrior
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 - £160 per tacho hour.
Civilian PA28 Warrior - £170 per tacho hour. PA28 Archer - £180 per tacho hour.
