Our services

PPL/LPL Flight Training

Modern Air can offer ab-initio training with its Cessna 152 and also continuation training for PPL licence holders which can include revalidations and IRR and complex endorsements. Come and discuss your flying and how you may develop your horizons. Our instructors are happy to explain options for development or we can try teaming you up with another member for some flights with shared responsibilities.

We have a range of Piper aircraft for you to hire and these aircraft are in excellent condition, well equipped and prepared for your departure.

Pop into the main office cabin for a chat with our admin staff who will be pleased to see you. If there is no one around, then in the far small room to you right your will find a coffee making machine. Please help yourself but leave things tidy!

Social & Fly-outs

From time to time, we arrange group fly-outs to various locations around the UK or across the channel. This provides an opportunity to share the flying, meet other club members and maintain or learn new skills.
