We Offer

We offer excellent availability to our flying club members with a fleet of very well maintained Cessna 172s, and Piper Archer II. We are the perfect choice for both experienced pilots looking for totally hassle-free, no equity aircraft hire, or for newly qualified pilots and hour builders wanting to gain experience and confidence at the best possible hire rates. Further two-seat Cessna C152 aircraft are available at advantageous rates for NWFG members through North Weald Flight Training.

The Flying Group

The NWFG is run by an instructor and an instructor/examiner so bi-annual instructor flights, refresher flights and proficiency checks are all easily arranged as are cross channel familiarisation’s which are very popular with our members to broaden their flying horizons. The North Weald Flying Group also has a very active flying calendar for our members. These group trips offer a range of exciting and interesting days out from flying into active RAF stations and even weekend trips across Europe to group night flying flights. Check out our ‘Previous Trips’ page to see what our members have enjoyed over the years. Further training such as the IR(R) and night rating can be undertaken with North Weald Flight Training.

Wherever You Are

The North Weald Flying Group can take you further and offer you the most cost-effective means to make the most of your PPL or LAPL. Please look at our FAQ’s page for more details and our current hire rates. If you require more information or would like to make an informal visit and discuss what the North Weald Flying Group can offer you, then please contact us.

Ideal for Hour Building

Why travel abroad to build hours towards your commercial licence when you can build hours in the UK with North Weald Flying Group.

The group is run by a commercial airline pilot and examiner with the intention of encouraging people to take up aviation and then develop their skills and interests – whether this is for personal enjoyment or as a career.

North Weald Flying Group has a great range of planes to choose from and unlike other clubs, groups or training organisations, North Weald Flying is happy to allow longer-term booking of planes. Rather than flying in circles close to the base, this makes it possible to take the plane away and have a real flying adventure while also building your hours and experience.
