Welcome to the Humber Flying Club
The path to a professional pilot licence is littered with deep potholes for the blasé or unwary. Our intention is to provide you with the best flight training at the best price in the shortest time on the best equipped aircraft available. We do not say it will be easy ..... many have tried and wished they had tried harder. However, in our view, they thought it was easier than it is, and were not prepared for the culture shock that followed. Most pilots who have got beyond PPL level can already fly to a good standard. What is then needed is being shown how to operate in a professional environment to the standard required by the CAA flight test examiners.
Please take the time to read our information and then ask us questions so you have the full facts in your possession before going any further. You may save yourself some grief later and you should know where you stand. Our reputation for plain speaking and good training is legendary.
Capt. John Greenfield Chief Flying Instructor and Owner.
The Chief Flying Instructor, Capt. John Greenfield is a current Commercial Pilot in addition to his instructors qualifications and has over 40 years flying experience. He is also a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved flight and ground examiner with CAA approval to conduct the European JAR (Joint Aviation Requirements) Modular Multi-Engine, Commercial, Instrument ratings and Simulator training. All of the other instructors hold full professional licences and are more experienced than normal club instructors.
Learning to Fly with The Humber Flying Club
We offer a variety of courses and instruction to help you obtain a Private Pilot Licence or a Commercial Pilot Licence with the minimum of cost. At Humber Flying Club you can simply pay for the services as you learn. You may start training at any age where you can reach the aircraft flying controls comfortably, though you must be over 16 years under European law before you can fly the aircraft solo. We also recommend that you have a minimum of an EASA medical examination before much training is done. Only good normal health is required. We suggest you discuss learning to fly and any problems with your family GP for free before spending any money with a CAA examiner.
