■To fly a circuit and land the aircraft.
■To effectively ask for assistance on the radio.

The course is split into eight lessons covering the following:
?Effects of controls
■Straight and Level
■Medium level turns
■Climbing and descending
■Joining the circuit to carry out a safe landing

No tests are involved and no medical is required. Should you decide to carry on and complete a PPL the hours flown during the course will count towards the licence.

Tail Wheel Rating (Certificate)

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment  V

Flying in our Piper Supercub is a wonderful experience but does require some difference training. Similar to the night qualification, the tail wheel rating takes a further 5 hours flying after achieving the PPL qualification. It is excellent experience for pilots to be able to fly as many different types of aircraft as possible and due to their design and structure, tail wheel aircraft exhibit different operational and handling characteristics to those with ‘tricycle gear? So, after having learned that those pedals are not just footrests, you will understand and actually be able to use the expression ‘adverse yaw? Why not try it out? Give Operations a call and book a lesson.

Completing a tail wheel conversion course will not only greatly improve your handling skills but is also great fun!

Night Rating (Certificate)

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment

The night qualification requires five hours dual instruction in a Warrior or five hours private instruction in your own aircraft.
White Waltham Airfield has a portable lighting system which operates on Runway 29/Runway 11.
Night flying takes place during the winter months on a Tuesday and Thursday evening, weather permitting.

Sustainable Aviation (Master Degree)

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment  V

Civil aviation has expanded exponentially in the late 20th and early 21st century and has become a fundamental feature of modern life. It enables effective business development and is a mainstay of leisure and tourism both in the UK and internationally.

The economic and social benefits are great, but the rate of growth is outstripping the rate of technological development and operational improvement within the industry. Consequently, key environmental impacts arising from aviation, principally aircraft noise and emissions, are likely to increase in the future, a trend that is unsustainable in the longer term.

The Sustainable Aviation Masters programme examines the role of the air transport industry in supporting economic development at a local, national and international level, as well as its negative social and environmental impacts. It provides training in the science and business of sustainable aviation.

The programme is offered both on a part-time and... [Read More]
