OUR CLUB

Once Club Pilot some students may wish to continue using our private sites while improving their skills and receiving extra guidance from our Instructors. With our Club you can continue flying in a familiar,  friendly and controlled environment with pilots you know. We also run Club trips abroad, arrange social events and have Club Coaches to guide you around the Southern sites.
