Specialist Flight Training

 

As an ATO, we intend to keep our huge experience of flying Seaplanes going. We plan to add more types as time goes on but for now our Seaplane Ratings and Single Engine Turbine Ratings are safe within the UK through SFT. Our HOT is also signed off to conduct OPC checks providing a valuable service to companies like Glass Eels and FlyWaves who would otherwise struggle to keep their AOC alive without an ATO to keep their pilots going. We are currently in the process of setting up a pilot Academy for Waves providing their cadets their CPL, MEP & MEIR training requirements before gaining their Cessna SET ratings , conducting the OPC's and completing their line training. We are always open to adding more classes and types to our ATO so if you have an ATO or you own an aircraft in which you struggle to find a training provider, we can help!

 

 

The Single Engine Turbine Rating is carried out from our Gloucester Base at Staverton Airport. Our SET courses are carried out in the fantastic Cessna Caravan 208. Brilliantly fun to fly just like a C182 with a bit of extra height and a 675bhp engine with reverst thrust! Amazingly versatile, fly in and out of grass strips as well as being at home in the airways with the big toys.

 

The Seaplane Rating is an amazing experience for all pilots from all flying backgrounds, conducted on the picturesque Loch Lomond. The rating includes an 8 hour course, a flight test with an examiner and a seamanship exam. The course is completed in an amphibious Cessna 172 with a 210bhp Continental engine for the extra power needed for flying floats.

 

We operate out of two bases currently. Our Gloucester based Staverton Airport where we conduct our Single Engine Turbine courses from and our Scottish based Prestwick Airport where we operate our Seaplane courses on the amazing Loch Lomond.

The two locations are ideal for their individual roles.
