Our Proposed COVID Re-Opening Plan.
Ground School 1st – 5th July
For anybody needing ground school we are offering all subjects for £99 each starting 1st July. Schedule to follow over the coming days.
Phase One Return To Flight – July 4th 2020
Initially we will be opening to students and currency flights for licence holders only. We will not be accepting any trial lessons or social visits at the moment. Should you wish to visit us this is by appointment only. All pilots must read, print off and sign a COVID declaration.
Hiring Aircraft & Currency Check
We have a strict 90 day policy on pilot currency, to protect pilots from skill fade induced risks. For this reason all private hiring pilots will require a briefing with an instructor and a currency check of up to 1 hours duration depending on competency on the flight. If you are currently a paying member you will be able to use your Free 2 hours instruction to cover the instructor costs. You will still need to pay for the aircraft hire and landing fee’s. You will then be able to hire an aircraft for periods of up to 1 hour only in July, whilst we catch up with the currency demand.
Phase Two – August 2020
COVID Precautions will be in place for the foreseeable future.
All current pilots will be able to hire aircraft. We will allow one passenger by request at this time, following our COVID guidelines. Students pilots will be able to participate in lessons. We shall still limit the number of people through the building and will still not be accepting visits without appointment.
We shall be operating a skeleton staff through these periods, so appreciate everyones patience and support during these times.
Look forward to seeing you all soon.
Keep safe and blue skies
