Visiting New Airfields
After you have obtained your licence, you will want to leave your training area and explore the country! One of the most daunting challenges facing the newly qualified pilot is to land away at new airfields.

Flight Sport Aviation can help you with this challenge.

Unusual Attitudes & Emergency Situations
Whilst the initial flight training covers these topics, it is very important for a pilot to keep these skills alive with frequent training.

Our instructors will help to keep these skills current and help you to stay safe.

Touring
Flight Sport Aviation are experts in overseas touring in light aircraft. We regularly conduct flying lessons as part of a tour across Europe where you can build your skills, hours and confidence with one of our instructors.

We operate our flying school and hire facilities from our base in Spain over winter.
