This weekend flying course is designed to get you to grips with the initial upper air work flying and to enhance your ability at the ab-initio stage. This 5 hour flying course starts at 10 am every Saturday morning and works on a one to one basis on one of our C42 aircraft. You will expect to fly 2 to 3 hours on the first day, this will include a full flight brief on each of the exercises from Exercise 1 to 6. Sunday will see you moving on to exercises 7 and 8 climbing and descending, and 9a and b level turns and climbing and descending turns. By the end of the weekend you will be able to fly the aircraft through all of the upper air exercises unaided and this will be the first major step towards your licence.

Day Course
 

GS Aviation uses the Ikarus C42 as their primary training aircraft. This aircraft type has been chosen as it is a high wing aircraft and the cockpit has easy access for students. It has forgiving handling characteristics, ideal for the low hours Pilot, along with a comfortable cabin including heating. The gas shock absorbers make for a strong durable undercarriage and, with disc brakes and flaps, the short field capability is second to none. A comfortable and economic cruise of 70 knots (80mph) allows both students and qualified pilots to go places at a fuel burn of under 12 litres an hour on the Rotax 912 80hp engine. Available for pupils during training on an hourly basis and also for shared ownership.
