Caring for your aircraft
Similar to aircraft ownership, hiring from us allows you to experience what it would be like owning or operating an aircraft without having to worry about maintenance or insurance. Throughout your hire period, and in recognising the journey you may be taking to becoming a commercial pilot, taking care of the aircraft is all we ask. By doing so will prolong the life of components which take most the strain of day-to-day flying, such as wheel bearings and tyres, precisely the approach you will take during your commercial flying career. On the day you come to collect your aircraft, we'll have made sure it's clean, tidy and ready to fly. We'll also carry out a walkaround with you to make sure you're completely satisfied before you officially take responsibility for the aircraft. For operational reasons and unless otherwise advised, please leave the key in the aircraft at all times.
As one of the tidiest and cost-effective PA28's in the UK, don't hesitate to book your package with us today.
*Where possible, we continue to maintain our aircraft to better improve your experience. As a result, some images may not fully reflect the latest additions to the aircraft equipment specification.
We recognise that you are making a significant investment when it comes to hiring from us and that's why when you book packages greater than 25, 50, 75 and 100 hours, we'll discount your hourly rate accordingly. Putting it simply, the more you fly, the more cost-effective your hour building becomes.
