This thread is so informative, Thanks to all for putting this together. I am planning to embark on my flying journey in the next couple months and all this info you have provided is exactly what I been looking for :)
I live in Kent (London suburbs) so the flying clubs in South east (Biggins Hill) would work for me. Any thoughts/suggestions/feedback is much appreciated.
I have a full time job in London that I dont wish to leave anytime soon. Learning to fly would be a dream coming true and getting PPL is the only aim...so far :D


Glad you’re looking at joining the club!

I can highly recommend Stapleford and an instructor called Sue. I drove 1h30 mins to get there and spent the day there usually doing 2 or 3 lessons.

In the end did my skills test at 45h50 and then went on to do my night rating there too.

Now looking at MEIR later this year with Stapleford.

Don’t limit yourself to the local area, find the school and instructor that fits your way of learning best and go from there.

Any advice needed, please get in touch!
