RAF Halton near Aylesbury Bucks, operates a Flying Club where Servicemen and women, regardless of rank or trade, and affiliated civilians, have the opportunity of learning to fly at the lowest practical cost. Halton is 25 minutes from the M25. Nearest rail station is Wendover on the Chiltern line…45 minutes from Marylebone.
The Club is well-equipped and operates 7 days a week with full-time instructors and a training fleet of 3 Cessna 152s, a PA-28 for PPL training and a brand new Tecnam Sierra for cost-effective flying. All aircraft are maintained to the highest standards by ATS Engineering at High Wycombe.
Membership of the club is open to all Regular, Reserve and Auxiliary Members of the Armed Forces of the Crown, Commonwealth and Allied Forces as well as members of the University Air Squadrons, the Air Training Corps and the Air Section of the Combined Cadet Force.
