Best Flight School in the London & SE

Best flight school in London and the southeast region, excellent instructors and lecturers with a great wealth of experience. Great value for money, affordable flight training, good location off the M11, M25. Mixed fleet of aircraft, from the new Tecnam to the old C152 I've been hour building on. (I'm a current modular ATPL student at the centre.)

Excellent Flight School in the SE

I was a CPL/MEIR Student at Stapleford flight Centre. On the whole, I had a good experience. I was a Modular Student. Aircraft for CPL and IR are of good standard. The DA42s had little downtime on my IR and the Arrows provide a platform for the CPL which is right for the price. Why do a CPL in twin?? Not much point in my book. The Arrow provides a good platform for the CPL. There is always chance through your instructors and bookings to backseat another students IR or CPL lesson [with them permitting] Through this you can learn more for less and make new friends along the way. On the whole, good (and some superb) instructors. Lack of full ATC is good in the sense that you don't waste valuable time waiting for clearances. Plenty of airfields nearby (i.e. Southend and Cambridge) for practice at fully controlled airfields for the CPL and IR. Full airways work during the IR is excellent prep for future airline/bizjet/commercial flying. Stapleford do this whereas some schools do not. IR on Glass cockpit DA42s. Stapleford Airfield unlike a lot of Commercial Schools does not have access to a massive stretch of tarmac or grass for that matter for its main runway [s]. It will sharpen up your Circuit and STOL techniques. This can only be a good thing. Reception staff were always friendly and helpful. And keeping a eye on your finances throughout the course was always made easy. Of 6 guys i met, doing the CPL/IR at about the same time as me, 5 of us went onto Commercial flying jobs as FOs. Im now flying as an FO on a fleet of Learjet 45 and 75 aircraft in the UK. 1 to Flybe 1 to Jet2 1 to DHL 1 to Air Macau.
