UK Flying Trips
Long weekend UK based pilot development courses.
21-24 June 2018
2-5 August 2018
If you’re already qualified and would like to progress we are now offering pilot development long weekends over the summer. We’ll make a last minute decision on where the weather is best a couple of days before and that’s where we’ll go.
We will use the whole of the UK as our playground so we might be in Cornwall, the Welsh boarders, the Gower, Yorkshire, Shropshire, or even Scotland. We will mostly be camping and as usual we’ll make it a real experience. In addition to the flying we’ll show you some of the great things locally that you won’t want to miss.
The trip will be led by John Welch, a BHPA instructor examiner and an instructor for over 20 years. Depending on the venue, you’ll get tuition on soaring, cross country flying, or hike and fly. We will have accommodation as well as meal plans all sorted out for you so all you’ll need to do is turn up and fly. We will help you to improve all aspects of your flying and to improve your confidence.
Our long weekends run from Thursday morning (we’ll arrive Wednesday evening) till the end of the day on Sunday and will take a maximum of 6 people. We will set the final destination at least 2 days before the start date. The cost for the long weekend is £160 pp.
