Course Progress

The course will begin with an assessment, and then an outline program. The basic flight lesson structure will follow the theme of a short briefing, followed by an instructional flight, followed by a debrief. The theory training will generally comprise a long briefing followed by home study, then a mock exam, revision training, and then the actual exam.

The briefing is followed by a familiarisation flight of about one hour to allow you to get acclimatised to the new conditions, and concluding with a few circuits. Subsequent flights will involve navigating and circuits until the student is deemed to be at a standard acceptable to permit supervised solo flight.

Privileges of the LAPL(A) Qualification


The privileges of the holder of an LAPL for aeroplanes are to act as PIC on single engine piston aeroplanes-land or TMG with a maximum certificated take-off mass of 2000 kg or less, carrying a maximum of 3 passengers, such that there are never more than 4 persons on board of the aircraft.

Holders of an LAPL(A) shall only carry passengers after they have completed, after the issuance of the licence, 10 hours of flight time as PIC on aeroplanes or TMG.

New C42 Microlight

The Fenland Flying School C42 has finally arrived at the distributers in the UK and is being fitted with its avionic equipment. It will have a full glass panel with backup analogue instruments, a Mode S Transponder and 8.3Khz Com. It is fitted with a ballistic parachute recovery system and uses Mogas.

Virtually unstallable and with a very low approach speed it will be an ideal learner platform. We will offer Microlight rental immediately and shortly afterwards Microlight training.

New Base at Sandtoft

We have opened a new base for aircraft maintenance at Sandtoft, which with its 4000' long tarmac runway will allow us to service faster aircraft.

Extended Approvals

The CAA have recently extended our BCAR approval to cover any single engine metal or wood Annex 2 Aircraft upto 5700Kg. This includes Light Sport aircraft, an application has been submitted for Microlight Group. This together with our Approval to issue National permits and Certificates of Validity means that we will be able to fully support all light aircraft from the smallest microlight upto Pressurised Piper P31P, Turbine TBM 750/850 and even Eclipse Jets ( latter N register only).

Flying Training at Fenland

We are working on out ATO approval, which will be extended to cover new capabilities.
