Your Instructors

At Manchester Flight Training, we believe there is a lot more
to learning  to  fly  than just flying the aircraft . The time you spend with your instructor , both before and after the lesson,
is as important as the flight itself.All our flight instructors are commercial  Pilots who have to pass periodical competency
checks by a CAA approved examiner. Our instructors will not
only teach you to fly, they will also teach you to become a
‘Captain’ of an aircraft!

Professional Standards

At Manchester Flight Training,we pride ourselves on our hard
earned reputation for professional standards and thorough training, with our friendly easy going teaching methods. You will receive a pre-flight briefing before each lesson, this gives you the opportunity to ask any questions and discuss the flight exercise.On completion of your lesson, you will be de-briefed on all aspects of the flight and discuss what study is required for the next lesson.


To help with continuity, you will be allocated one instructor
who supervises your PPL from start to finish . To maintain
standardisation throughout your course, at certain stages you
will fly with an alternative instructor as a progress check and
also to ensure you get used to flying with different people.This
helps you prepare for your PPL flight test, which of course,will
be conducted by a CAA examiner – a pilot with whom you
have never flown.

How Long Will It Take And What Is The Cost?

The minimum Civil Aviation Authority requirement is 45 hours,
which is achievable if continuity and progress are maintained.
However, in our experience, external influences such as work,
family life and bad weather will enforce breaks in your
training. Flying is a skill and is therefore very much dependant
on the individual. Students can take from three weeks to up to
three years to complete their studies and gain their PPL.
