Advanced Flying
GS Aviation can help you to progress into better pilot
  1. STOL Training
    This module is all about teaching pilots how to plan and perform short field landings and take offs. The goal is make pilots aware of those control characteristics particularly at slow speeds in turbulence. We will make you more attuned to the operating environment and an individual aircraft's short comings.
  2. Advanced Navigation
    With the advent of low-cost global positioning system [GPS] receivers, airfield and airspace data-bases. Pilots have become reliant on technology. Prudent airmanship dictates that these advanced techniques are always regarded only as an additional aid to the basic VFR navigation techniques of pilotage and dead-reckoning.
  3. Flying Abroad
    We will help you to file a flight plan make all the necessary GAR fillings and plan a channel crossing. We have done a significant number of flights into mainland Europe. With our standard training aircraft you can be in France within 3 hours of flying
  4. Cross Country
    With an instructor, we can help you plan your flight, Say Clench, Popham, Sandown (on the Isle of Wight), Dunkeswell (in Devon) and back to Clench. Plenty of chance to remember those navigational skills, landing at new airfields, and most importantly building your confidence because you are doing it. The instructor is there alongside to provide help and reassurance if needed.
  5. Tailwheel
    If you learned to fly in a nosewheel configuration aircraft and you want to expand the aircraft types you can fly safely, then learning to handle tailwheel and tailskid-equipped aircraft is essential. Taildraggers can be a lot of fun but a few hours tuition in landing and ground handling technique is essential.
  6. Single Seater
    There are many types of single-place aircraft. In many cases there will be just a single copy of an owner designed and built aircraft. Flying such an aircraft is a big moment for any pilot, if only because you cannot be shown how to fly it, only be told how to fly it, and trusted to do so. Most likely there will be no aircraft flight manual or pilot's operating handbook and you, personally, must ensure the aircraft is airworthy.
