Welcome to Freedom Aviation. We are a friendly flying school based in the Cotswolds, specialising in training for the Private Pilot's Licence (PPL). If you already have a PPL, why not try your hand at learning tailwheel, aerobatics or perhaps an instrument rating? We operate from mainly Cotswold Airport in Gloucestershire and use Oaksey Park Airfield in Wiltshire as our satellite airfield. The benefits of two airfields are invaluable, Cotswold Airport operates a FISO service and has just over 2,000 metres of hard runway as well as a grass runway. Oaksey Park has a radio service and just under a 1000 metres of grass.
Wishing to pursue flying as a career? We can offer mentored hour building packages too. Rather than flying in circles, you could fly to Europe, the Scottish Highlands and Islands as well as exploring rarely visited parts of the UK. Mentored hour building will broaden your aviation experience and sharpen your skills, ready for your CPL training. Take a look at some of the photos taken from previous hour building trips to see what you can experience.
Flying Instructor Courses
Freedom’s Head of Training, Dave Jelly, is qualified to conduct Flying Instructor Courses. This can provide a further level of progression for those wishing to establish a career in aviation.
We offer one day ground school for all subjects in the PPL/LAPL syllabus. At the end of each day you will have the opportunity to sit the exam whilst the information is fresh in your mind. We have a variety of ground school instructors including a current 747 pilot. Future course dates can be found here.
