Sky Leisure Aviation is a CAA and AOPA approved Flight Training Organisation (FTO). We offer training through to the JAR PPL qualification on our fleet of Cessna and Piper training aircraft. Initially you may wish to try out a lesson in each aircraft, and then you can make an informed choice (with your instructor) of which aircraft suits you best.

The main requirement a pilot needs is dedication to achieve your goal! Mistakenly many people believe that you have to have a lot of qualifications, or some special skill before you start a course of PPL training. This is not the case. The PPL course comprises of both flight and ground training. As with driving, you have to know the rules governing your vehicle’s movement, which we call the rules of the air. This is one example of the ground training required. Further ground study is required to develop your theoretical knowledge of subjects such as the weather and navigation using aeronautical charts. You will also learn how to communicate with Air Traffic Control via the radio. Of course the most exciting part for most people is the flight training, where you develop your practical handling skills.

Instruction is given on a one to one basis with one of our dedicated instructors allocated to you for your course of training. All instruction follows the European Joint Aviation Authority’s approved training syllabus, which requires a minimum of 45 hours training to be undertaken. As each student will be different, Sky Leisure’s instructors will individually evaluate each person and regularly advise you of your progress. All lessons also include full pre-flight briefings and debriefings.
