A complete package that provides the necessary minimum 25* hours flight training to achieve your NPPL.

ACCOMMODATION

On site accommodation in a large six-berth caravan can be included at additional cost. For example, the whole course over 3 weeks (with 21 nights accommodation) would total £4095 for fixed wing and £3995 for flexwing. See details of the accommodation at Shobdon here. Alternatively, there is accommodation close to the airfield – see here

* Additional hours can be added as required to this package at the discounted rate of £99/hr for fixed wing and £95/hr for flexwing – see ‘Gaining your Pilot’s Licence’ here.


Terms and Conditions

Cancellations: You can cancel your complete course at any time up to 48 hours before it is due to begin – an administration charge of £35.00 will be subtracted to cover our costs. If you cancel less than 48 hours before your course is due to begin (or cancel during your course), 10% will be deducted as well as the £35.00 administration charge. In the unlikely event that, after a few hours, you don’t want to continue with your flight training, we can refund any pre-paid unused hours, less the cancellation fees detailed above and the cost of course books and equipment. HOWEVER, you will not be entitled to the block booking discount, and the flying hours you have used will be charged at the prevailing rate, currently £110 for fixed wing and £105 for flexwing per hour.

There is no refund on booked accommodation.

Terms and Conditions

If you are unable to use all your pre-paid flying hours (which can sometimes happen due to bad weather), they can be booked at a later date – singly or as a block again. Pre-paid ground school and exam fees can also be taken at a later time if necessary. Accommodation and any additional ground school sessions will be charged at the prevailing rate.

The discounted hourly rate you have paid for your block hours is the same rate that will be applied to all subsequent hours up until your General Skills Test. In other words, the discounted rate will apply to all your later hours, even if booked singly ‘hour by hour’.

Already have your exams? Simply subtract the ground school and exam costs from the total.

Cancellations: You can cancel your package course at any time up to 48 hours before it is due to begin – an administration charge of £35.00 will be subtracted to cover our costs. If you cancel less than 48 hours before your course is due to begin (or cancel during your course), 10% will be deducted as well as the £35.00 administration charge. In the unlikely event that, after a few hours, you don’t want to continue with your flight training, we can refund any pre-paid unused hours, less the cancellation fees detailed above. HOWEVER, you will not be entitled to the block booking discount, and the flying hours you have used will be charged at the prevailing rate, currently £110 for fixed wing and £105 for flexwing per hour.

Trying to fit 10 hrs flying and all the exams into a one week period will require a great deal of commitment and study from the student. If it is too intense, don’t worry – unused ground school hours and examination fees from any package deal can be postponed or refunded in full.

There is no refund on booked accommodation.
