Why Fly with Us?

10 reasons to learn to fly with Cambridgeshire Microlights:

  • Availability: We fly 7 days a week all year round and, unlike most schools, we can offer evening flying slots during the summer months to those who wish to fly after work.
  • Flexibility: Whether you want to fly once a month or twice a day, we will tailor your course to suit your needs.
  • Weather: Being in the lowest rainfall part of the UK we offer more flyable days per year than most flying schools.
  • Airfield: With 8 grass runways, we almost never lose a day’s flying to cross winds and we have everything you need on site.
  • Instructors: Our team of friendly and enthusiastic instructors has many years of flying experience.
  • Aircraft: The Ikarus C-42 is comfortable, stable and fun to fly. It’s ideal for learning and our powerful 100hp school aircraft minimises time spent in the climb.
  • Airspace: Chatteris Airfield is ideally situated in the middle of a large area of un-congested and un-restricted airspace, so we don’t waste any of your lesson flying out to a training area.
  • Location: We are just off the A141 between March and Chatteris, and the closest train station is just 5 miles away in the town of March.
  • Club: Our relaxed and sociable flying club provides an idea learning environment. Club members organise informal fly-outs throughout the year.
  • Post licence: You will have the option of progressing further with advanced post licence training and extra qualifications, including the FRTOL radio course which is regularly run on site.
