It’s our 90th birthday!

As you may already be aware, it’s our 90th birthday this year (we know, we know, we don’t look a day over 80!) 😉

Over the years we have trained thousands of pilots from all walks of life, not least the 22,000 RAF, Navy and Army recruits of WWII such as fighter ace Johnnie Johnson. Check out our history page for more on this.

We have become a centre for excellence in pilot training thanks to the dedication and enthusiasm of our pilots and instructors and our extended family on the ground.

We will be celebrating in style this year and have exciting things planned..So watch this space.

But we need your help to make this happen! What we’re after is any relevant:

-Historic photographs, film
-Your memories, stories

Do you have an interesting background with Marshall of Cambridge and the Aero Club? If so would you like to contribute as a guest speaker perhaps?

Please do get in touch –we would love to hear from you!

We are thrilled to announce the winner of this year’s Molly Rose Scholarship. Huge congratulations to Amelia Richardson who at only 17 y/o really impressed the panel and shone through despite stiff competition!The Molly Rose 🌹 Scholarship is in memory of Sir David Marshall’s daughter, herself a great aviator during WWII, flying for the Air Transport Auxiliary. Sir David founded Marshall of Cambridge in 1909, and his son (Molly’s brother) later set up the aviation wing of Marshall and @cambridgeaeroclub where Amelia will now train.Inspired by Molly and intended to encourage young women into aviation, the initiative fully funds the Private Pilot’s Licence for one promising student each year.With her extensive gliding background and enthusiasm we can’t wait to get Amelia started on her PPL @cambridgeaeroclub !Describing the award as a huge honour, Richarson explained: “It really is a fantastic leap towards achieving my career aspirations as a flight instructor, a taste of which I’ve had since becoming a basic gliding instructor just over a year ago. Thank you to everyone for supporting me”.Christopher Walkinshaw DL, Director of External Relations and Communications at Marshall of Cambridge, concluded that “Amelia is clearly a passionate and talented young aviator who has already achieved a great deal,” extending the Marshall team’s enthusiasm in continuing to watch her career progress.Huge thanks to Aetheris Films and the Attagirls Club, Paul & Nadine Olaveson-Stabb, Graham, Gregory and Nigel Rose, The British Women Pilots Association (BWPA), Philip Meeson founder of Jet2 and of course Marshall of Cambridge, of which we are a part.@amelia_glider_pilot @mollyrosepilotscholarship @marshallgroupglobal @attagirlsclub @attagirlsthemovie @bwpa_uk @aetheris_uk #womeninaviation #learntofly #pilottraining #privatepilot ...

Flying Training
Post Category: Event and Social

Instrument training & the IR(R) this season

Are you planning on refreshing your flying skills this season?

The Cambridge Aero Club team of Instrument rated instructors are ready and waiting to guide you down the ILS to success!

The autumn and winter weather often brings poor visibility and layers of stratus and strato-cu cloud with good visibility on top, these are just the conditions in which an instrument qualification helps to keep you flying safely.

Cambridge Aero Club aircraft are ideally equipped for instrument training and our airport is ideal – with good lighting and excellent instrument approaches & ATC support, along with our team of dedicated Instructors and examiners that help to make flying “under the hood” a doddle!

Along with training pilots for the intital IR(R), (previously the IMC rating), and supporting through the groundschool element of the course, we are pleased to offer bespoke recurrency training for the renewal or revalidation of the full IR, and our newest course on offer, the CBIR – please ask a member of the team for details and a personal assessment to assist with scheduling and an action plan.

Our instrument training rates are inclusive of all ILS/NDB & GPS approaches here at Cambridge, when using our C172 fleet.

Both Ed and Alan have excellent availability throughout January and February.

For more information regarding all of our training courses can be found on our website, or by calling us on 01223 373717 or emailing us @ reception@cambridgeaeroclub.com

So long to our Flying Legends GA visitors!

It’s been a busy few days at Cambridge Aero Club and GA Centre! With Duxford Imperial War Museum having its annual Flying Legends Air Show. We have been welcoming visitors from across Europe for what turned out to be a fabulous weekend, which also marked the 100th anniversary of the RAF.

It’s fair to say we had an eclectic mix of pilots who were all in high spirits ready for the big display!

So all that remains to say is Au Revoir, Auf Wiedersehen and Vaarwel! ..Until next time, happy flying! 🙂

Introducing.. Latest additions to our team

Over the last few months we have been delighted to welcome some new and talented instructors to our team. Namely, Pete Hughes (also flies Tiger Moths and a former differences student of ours), Joff Hicks (based out of Seething and Old Buck and most recently, Garth McCormick from Belfast.

Garth has been based in Manchester for the majority of the last 20 years having learnt to fly at Newtownards in 2008 and says of his varied career to date:

“my low boredom threshold means that at various times I have worked as an economist, astrophysicist, civil servant and, most recently, physics teacher.”

Having studiously avoided photographs all his life, you will have to come and meet Garth in person!

As many of you are aware we have had several success stories recently with many of our instructors heading off to ‘proper jobs’ in the commercial aviation sector. Sam Keogh, Stef Gonzalez to Iberia Airlines, and of course Jay Sadri (former company instructor) is busy with his type rating for Titan. Although you may see Jay every now and then knocking out some loops in the Extra 200..

We feel that we have just the right combo of old and new (in every sense!) with our instructors and are also able to offer an environment where you can have informal chats with both commercial pilots (such as Mark Evans, Rob Bryce Smith, Arwyn Jones) and those currently undertaking commercial training (or soon to be!) – Invaluable to student pilots!

We are thrilled to have such great additions to our rich and diverse team with an ever growing and varied skills base. Everything from PPL through to advanced training in Aerobatics, Tailwheel and the instrument rating on our CBIR course.

Last but not least our newest administrator and fellow PPL student Sarah Glover is settling in a treat! 🙂

So next time you’re in look out for one of our new guys and gals!

Huge congratulations to Amelia Richardson who at only 17 y/o really impressed the panel and shone through despite stiff competition!The Molly Rose 🌹 Scholarship is in memory of Sir David Marshall’s daughter, herself a great aviator during WWII, flying for the Air Transport Auxiliary. Sir David founded Marshall of Cambridge in 1909, and his son (Molly’s brother) later set up the aviation wing of Marshall and @cambridgeaeroclub where Amelia will now train.Inspired by Molly and intended to encourage young women into aviation, the initiative fully funds the Private Pilot’s Licence for one promising student each year.With her extensive gliding background and enthusiasm we can’t wait to get Amelia started on her PPL @cambridgeaeroclub !Describing the award as a huge honour, Richarson explained: “It really is a fantastic leap towards achieving my career aspirations as a flight instructor, a taste of which I’ve had since becoming a basic gliding instructor just over a year ago. Thank you to everyone for supporting me”.Christopher Walkinshaw DL, Director of External Relations and Communications at Marshall of Cambridge, concluded that “Amelia is clearly a passionate and talented young aviator who has already achieved a great deal,” extending the Marshall team’s enthusiasm in continuing to watch her career progress.Huge thanks to Aetheris Films and the Attagirls Club, Paul & Nadine Olaveson-Stabb, Graham, Gregory and Nigel Rose, The British Women Pilots Association (BWPA), Philip Meeson founder of Jet2 and of course Marshall of Cambridge, of which we are a part.@amelia_glider_pilot @mollyrosepilotscholarship @marshallgroupglobal @attagirlsclub @attagirlsthemovie @bwpa_uk @aetheris_uk #womeninaviation #learntofly #pilottraining #privatepilot ...

‘Aero Abroad’ voyage!

Airways & IFR for our maiden ‘Aero Abroad’ voyage!

In the spirit of adventure and to celebrate GMEGS new DME we would like to invite Pilots considering the CBIR course to join us on an Airways adventure to Weston(EIWT), Dublin in early May!

In the mix with commercial traffic!

This flight is an opportunity to  see first hand how an airways flight is planned, conducted, and accomplished!

Our destination has been carefully selected by Ed, as it merits a number of advantages in its location for lunch and tourist activities.

The total distance of the route is 269nm, which is just 6% greater than the great circle distance! Estimated flight time is 2:40 each way in still air.

As with all Aero Club away-days we aim for one ‘Student’ pilot to fly outbound, the other return & hope to plan a date in early May – if you are interested please let us know!

This trip is only available to those seriously considering the CBIR, and should already hold the IMC/IR(R).

A reminder, the CBIR course leads to a full IR rating which

~ is recognized throughout Europe, unlike the IR(R)

~ allows access to airways and all classes of airspace.

~ permits approaches to a minimum cloud base of 200ft & 800m visibility.

The CBIR can be completed in as little as 10 hours of formal ATO flight training for pilots that do hold an IMC/IR(R) and have experience of IFR in their logbooks. For those that don’t the full course is 40 hours in duration. This trip would count towards that IFR experience.

For further information about this trip or to find out more about the CBIR just speak to a member of the team!
