Our students say…

“I have nothing but praise and admiration for Falcon. Over the last few years they have taught my how to fly, how to fly at night and how to fly by instruments. I have achieved a licence in all three and this is simply due to the excellent tuition provided by Falcon. Flying has become my favourite pastime as a result.  If anyone thinking of learning to fly is considering Falcon as a good choice of flying club then look no further.  I would recommend them without reservation.”
Professor Mike Parker.
