Why Learn to Fly ?
In a sometimes stressful and pressurised life, we all need recreation. Time out to recharge the batteries. Well flying can do that. Once you sit into the pilot’s seat, you have to focus on the ‘business at hand’ and leave your day to day worries behind. The freedom of the sky becomes yours.
Flying light aircraft is challenging, rewarding, exciting and no two flights are ever the same.
Whether it’s cross country navigation, putting the aeroplane through a series of aerobatic manoeuvres, soaring in rising air currents, building your own machine or restoring vintage aeroplane, it’s a wonderful sport that can last a lifetime.
