We are opening from July 4th

We are very happy to announce that we are reopening from the 4th July! Thanks to everyone for your patience whilst we have introduced a phased re-opening. We are really excited to see our regulars again, as well as all the new faces. See below for news/changes.

The cafe
Will be open with limited seating in order to maintain the adequate distancing required. We will also have limited parking available in order to reflect the limited seats available.
The menu will be different to start off with, with limited food options. We are hoping to add to and change this as soon as possible, so thank you for bearing with us!
We won’t be taking table bookings to start with.
Hours will be 10-4 Tuesday to Sunday.
We have a new outside ice cream and snacks area opposite the entrance for you to enjoy.

The flying school
We will be open for solo hirers and existing students from the 4th July too. New students, we hope to be able to get you started as soon as possible. Solo hirers can book to get checked out from the 4th to the 8th, and students can get booked in from the 9th onwards. Please see your emails from us in order to find out how to book.

Experience Flights
These come under the same umbrella as the flying school, however by the nature of the flights, they involve a lot more interaction for our pilots, with many more people. From the 4th July the pilots will be in “bubbles” with a few students each in order to reduce interactions with people learning to fly. We hope to be able to resume experience flights by the middle of August (Piper Warrior and Four Seater) but we may be able to operate the vintage fleet (Harvard, Bi-plane, Chipmunk). We will update this on our Experiences Flight section on our website as soon as possible.


We will have limited staffing so please bear with us if there is a delay in responding to your emails, or answering the phone. If you email us, there will be an automatic response which will hopefully contain the answer to your question. If it doesn’t, please email us again and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
