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, a Citabria for tailwheel and aerobatics training and a XA42 for thrill seekers and high-performance aerobatics. We have now added, an almost new, highly equipped Cessna 172SP, with three axis autopilot and Stormscope to the Freedom fleet.
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 Scotland, Ireland, France, Spain, Norway and Sweden. In September last year, 15 pilots and 5 Piper Warriors flew through Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Austria on the Freedom Summer Flying expedition. These trips are open to all Freedom members, both qualified pilots and those undergoing training. Planning is already underway for the 2016 Summer Flying trip to Portugal and North Africa in September. There is so much interest we are now going to run two identical flying trips, one at the beginning of September and one at the end of September.
