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!

Cambridge Aero Club

Huge Congratulations to Mark today who Aced his skills test with examiner Adam Boyle in trusty NB! ✨🎉👏 Mark said of his path to aviation: “Being a pilot has always been a lifelong career goal of mine, so during 2020, I took the plunge and joined Cambridge aero club. It’s the Best decision I have made and I have loved every second of my training, the staff and instructors at the Aeroclub could not have been more helpful in seeing me through to passing, and gaining my private pilots license. Thank you to all involved and I can’t wait to start the next phase”
Aw thanks Mark! It’s been a pleasure and we to look forward to your next adventure!

🚨Air Cadet Wins Scholarship🚨 👇👇

We are very excited and proud to see that Cadet Sergeant Georgia Pescod, from 104 (City of Cambridge) Squadron, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing ATC, has won a sought-after scholarship with the British Women Pilots' Association.

This scholarship, valued at £15,000, was applied for by young women aged 17-24 from across the country. Georgia seriously impressed the panel and managed to secure the scholarship. As a result, Georgia will receive full pilot training at the Cambridge Aero Club.

Georgia has also recently been appointed as a Lord Lieutenant’s Cadet for Cambridgeshire, so we have no doubt she’ll be kept very busy over the next few months!

We are very proud of you, Georgia! 🎉 Congratulations to you and good luck in your pilot training this summer! 🤞

Flying Training

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
