Aeroplane Lessons and Courses

Want to get your licence or add a rating to your licence? Our fixed price one to one training packages are a convenient and cost effective way to achieve your ambition. We take care of the structure and provide everything you need to achieve your goal.

Our training packages offer an easy and convenient method to achieve your licence or add a rating to your existing licence. This offers a considerable time and cost saving compared to gaining your desired qualification using the ‘pay as you go’ method. Courses and upcoming events can be viewed below and booked online. Our packages include the benefits of membership, so non members can take full advantages of our services.

New Pilots Package

Have you been considering your licence but not quite sure? Our new pilots package is a comprehensive taster package. You will experience what is involved in learning to fly as well as thrill and serenity of flying a light aircraft. If after this package you’ve caught the flying ‘bug’, our fast track course is the next logical step.

Fast Track Pilots Licence

Working towards your pilots licence can be a very long journey requiring commitment and careful time management. When work and social life is factored in it is very easy for your licence timescale to start to slip. When learning to fly consistency is key, without this it can take years to finally gain your licence. This is not only frustrating but can be very expensive!

With our fast track pilots licence programme we can take you from no experience to a pilots licence in around 1 – 3 months. It includes everything you need to go from no experience to pilots licence in a manner that is not only cost effective but will potentially make you a better pilot. Our fastest student so far took just three and a half weeks. This is a great option for someone who may want to get their licence ready for a summer of private flying or those looking to move on to a commercial licence.

Additional Ratings

Fancy doing something a little bit different with your pilots licence? Why not get your night rating or aerobatic rating with us? Both of these are fantastic ways of improving your skills and are a sure step to becoming a better pilot. Not quite sure on the requirements of your desired rating? Our packages take care of all that, all required flying and theoretical hours are included at one attractive price.

I was one of those who got their flying lesson voucher on their birthday. I was pretty excited and arranged a lesson with Almat. All I was supposed to get was some basic navigating bordering on boring. This has all changed when I've met my flying instructor. Now within the 30 minutes of our time he has turned me into a MAN! Who can boast that they've done a barrel roll, inside loop, inverted flying up to 4Gs on their first lesson?! My expectation of an ordinary experience has turned into the most amazing! And he has even made a video of it for me and gave a voucher for a pint in a nearby pub! Thank you, Almat Aviation!

After beginning to get nervous on commercial planes I decided to have a flying lesson at Almat. My instructor Ali was brilliant at explaining the whole process, the pre-flight checks, what is going on in the air, and what pilots are looking out for, and of course how I was going to fly! He applied this information to commercial flying too and has very much set my mind at ease.The flight itself was incredible! I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. We saw plenty of the local landmarks, and I had control for most of the flight. Ali has a great sense of humour too!This is absolutely something I will do again, and I urge everybody to give this a go!

Wow! What a brilliant experience! I was bought the extended flying lesson as a gift from my family and it certainly didn't disappoint.Started with a briefing in the classroom by Simon and although I didn't really know anything about the technicalities of flying this short briefing really helped to prime me for what was to come.Once out on the tarmac I was handed over to my instructor, Steve and we were soon underway. Nothing really beats that take off moment which was my first in a light aircraft. Weather was overcast with cloud layer at around 3000ft which we were soon above, making for another great dimension to the experience. Steve was great at explaining everything as he was going along (even if I didn't really understand some of it!) and I very quickly felt at ease. I was surprised/delighted at how immersive and hands on the experience was and it went so quickly!Once back on the ground I found myself discussing course options (which i hadn't planned to!) and finding more out about the academy, which Simon talked me through.All in all an experience I hope I don't ever forget! Thanks guys, might be seeing you again!
