About Us

Our flying school here at Welshpool is a small and friendly school. Opened in 2014, we are a sister training facility to Flintshire Flying School based at Hawarden Airport which has been successfully training pilots since 2009. All aircraft are maintained on sight at Hawarden by our engineering partner keeping aircraft downtime to a minimum. We share a fleet of aircraft easily accessible between both schools.

Here at Welshpool we are focussed on delivering the highest standard of instruction and our experienced instructors will ensure your training experience is both professional and enjoyable.

Welshpool flying school is perfectly situated for flight training and trial flight experiences. At the airfield there is a relaxed yet professional atmosphere and fantastic scenery to take in.

The diverse landscape means students get to experience flying over both rural and built up areas.

We offer a comprehensive range of flying qualifications structured to meet the needs of all aspiring pilots.

The flying school operates weekdays and weekends and our door is always open so feel free to drop by for a chat.
