Based in the Cotswolds, Freedom Aviation is the perfect place for you to learn to fly, or continue your flying adventures if you already have a Private Pilot's Licence.
Founded in 2006 by Sarah and Dave with one aircraft, Freedom has grown to a successful school and flying club with well-equipped Piper Warriors, two Citabria's for tailwheel and aerobatics training and a XA42 for thrill seekers and high-performance aerobatics.
Membership is growing rapidly as word gets around about our excellent instructional standards, great social scene and our friendly relaxed atmosphere.
In addition to flying training we also specialise in mentored hour building and have regular flying expeditions. To date places visited: Channel Islands, Scotland, Ireland, France, Spain, Norway and Sweden, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Austria. These trips are open to all Freedom members, both qualified pilots and those undergoing training. In 2016 we ran two Summer flying trips to France, Spain, Portugal, Corsica and Sardinia, with a total of seven aircraft and nineteen pilots.
In 2017 Freedom's Head of Training, Dave Jelly led two exciting Summer Flying trips to the northernmost part of mainland Norway via Scotland, Norway, Finland, Lapland, Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands and France, visiting remote airfields and experiencing some of the most stunning scenery. A detailed account of the first trip can be found in Flyer Magazine, due to be released very soon.
