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

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 ...
