Professional Pilot Training (includes ground studies)A forum for those on the steep path to that coveted professional licence. Whether studying for the written exams, training for the flight tests or building experience here's where you can hang out.
The Flight Centre have just purchased a brand new DA42 Twinstar which will be available for multi engine CPL and IR for a very competitve rate. Recently did my PPL, CPL & FI there and the place was excellent. Brilliant atmosphere and fantastic instructors. Would recommend them to anyone and everyone! They offer loads of courses including PPL, IMC, Night, CPL, IR, FIC and MCC You can contact them on 01384 221456 or have a look at website www.hgfc.co.uk
Hi all, I have been milling around the threads (and searching! ) but cannot find recent views on The Flight Centre, Wolverhampton Airport. Looking to do my CPL,IR and probably FI with them, just wondering if anyone has any views, recent experiences etc etc...... Many thanks in advance! ifly
I have only flown a few hours with them a while ago, but I was nothing but impressed at the quality of service, friendly instructors and tuition, and would highly reccomend them if you are thinking about training in the mids area
They've generally had a good reputation for many many years now. Another example of a small unglamorous FTO providing excellent training at prices much keener than those marketed by specialist departments at other FTOs.
ps ALWAYS, refer to it as Halfpenny Green airfield and NOT Wolverhampton Intergalactic Business Airport or whatever the management desire it to be called these days.
incidentally, whatever happened to Chris Caine. I did my CPL and FI with him, thought he was an excellent (but never on time) instructor. Then I heard he had moved to the flight centre (which I thought would have been a downward step for him), then I hear he's not there anymore either.
that's strange because someone who used to instruct there recently told me he had left and was now doing some kind of commercial flying job - that's why I asked really - couldn't imagine him doing that.
Anybody done any training with them? Im thinking of doing the CPL there and have spoken to them on the phone. They seem very friendly and helpfull but if anybody has any comments, good or bad, id be very greatfull.
