Aaron Holtom Cook 1st Solo.jpeg

Aaron took to the skies for the very first time on his own and landed back with a 'greaser'!   As part of the PPL syllabus you not only fly with instructors, but also on your own, supervised by our instructors.  Aaron chose the perfect day, a light breeze and sunny weather.  Well done!

Shaheer solo to barnard castle - 22.09.1

Shaheer pictured here in G-AVRK had just returned from his solo cross country flight.  During the Private Pilot Licence Training, part of the training involves navigation. Once your instructor is confident you can navigate the skies you'll be off on your own. Shaheer flew to Barnard Castle, then North East to the Nissan factory, prior to navigating safely back to Durham Tees Valley Airport.  Well done Shaheer!
