Flight training at Herefordshire Aeroclub
Learning to fly is a unique experience. From your very first take-off you will be enjoying the freedom, challenges, beauty and privileges of flight.
Few other activities bring such rewards during the initial learning process and even fewer bring the sense of satisfaction associated with your ‘first solo’ Our experienced instructors, all of whom are fully qualified commercial pilots can train you for both the National Private Pilot’s Licence or Joint Aviation Authority (JAA) Licence which offers greater future opportunities.
Here at Herefordshire Aero Club we believe in making flying affordable, but low prices shouldn't be confused with low quality.
We own all our aircraft, we purchase fuel direct from Total UK Ltd, have an in-house CAA Approved M3 Maintenance Division and even manage Shobdon Airfield. All these factors help contribute to some of the lowest prices in the country whilst maintaining the highest possible standards.
All times are recorded in ‘Hobbs Time'. The 'Hobbs' meter measures the time that the engine is running. This means that you don't pay for the aircraft while it's parked, or even whilst you are settling in and making yourself, and others, comfortable. The Hobbs Meter measures in decimals to the nearest 10th of an hour. Although we quote hourly rates, you can fly for as long as you wish and will be charged to the nearest 10th as indicated on the meter.
In Club aircraft there are no home based landing fees, an important consideration, especially whilst learning, where you may be carrying out up to six landings and take-offs an hour during some stages of your training. As a CAA Registered Training facility, Herefordshire Aero Club can guide you on the most appropriate route to achieve both your current and future aspirations.
