    That’s great to hear Ian!

    We should point out that the costs outlined above are for aeroplane flight training – you will find that the helicopter route is somewhat more expensive. This comes down to the fact that helicopters are more expensive to run in terms of fuel costs, as well as there being fewer helicopter instructors and so higher demand.

    Having said all that there are some really great packages available and many aero clubs that will do their very best to support you on your journey towards that coveted pilots licence!

    Best of luck!

    Hi Dafydd,

    For young people looking to get into aviation, the air cadets is a fantastic route to take and can open up lots of opportunities for scholarships and other funding.

    I’d strongly advise you to get in touch with you’re local Squadron – here’s their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/1092aircadets/about/?ref=page_internal

    https://www.rafa.org.uk/what-we-do/air-cadets/flying-scholarships/ – this page details some of the scholarships you could have the opportunity to get access to.

    Hope that helps! Happy Flying!

    Hi Corinne,

    That’s a great question.
    While flying schools will always aim to make flying accessible for all, there is a basic safety requirement for most lessons that the student must have enough mobility to climb in and out of the cockpit unaided.

    If you think you could do this then you should be able to take part in a standard flying lesson. You can find all the flying lessons in the South East England area by following the link below.

    http://flyinglessons.co.uk/browse/?min_price=0&orderby=price&filter_region=268,267

    Obviously, not everyone will be able to meet the mobility requirement for these standard lessons, but there are a number of organizations set up with the aim of increasing the accessibility of flying for pilots of all abilities. If you think you’ll need extra assistance, I’d highly recommend getting in touch with one of these:

    http://www.aerobility.com/
    http://www.fsfdp.org.uk/

    I hope that helps.

    Good luck, and happy flying!
