Don’t forget you can hire the schools aircrafts on Sundays and if you would like to fly somewhere for the day only a minimum of 2 hours flying is required. Just call, drop in or book online at www.sfsonlinebooking.co.uk

Staverton Flying School will be organising 2 fly-away days for the summer:

  • There will also be a fly away day to Newquay where you will be able to visit the Classic Air force museum. This day is arranged for Sunday 10th August with back-up dates for Sundays 17th and 31st August. More details can be found at www.classicairforce.com

There will be limited spaces for both days so please book your place soon. Both days are open to qualified pilots and students with an instructor and are a great opportunity to experience new airfields and meet other SFS students and PPL’s.
