LEARNING TO FLY AT HENSTRIDGE


Our flying school is a CAA registered Declared Training Organisation ( DTO ) and all our Instructors, Examiners and the aircraft we fly are also strictly regulated by the CAA. Our aircraft are also fully insured to European law standards.

Henstridge is one of very few airfields in the South West of the UK that has a tarmac runway. Therefore, you will not have a lesson cancelled because the runway is sodden as can happen at a grass airfield.
