Aero Prompt – Presenting Cambridge Aero Club’s new expiry reminder service

If you would like to avail of our new FREE service please let us take a copy of your licence & medical next time you fly, or scan your documents and pop us an email!
We will then track your dates and send you a friendly reminder with plenty of time to spare when any of your important documents are due to expire.

The requirements for SEP revalidation by experience are:-

– 12 Hours flight within the last 12 month, 6 of which must be PIC
– 6 Take offs and landings within the last 12 months
– 1 Hour flight with an instructor within the last 12 months

The SEP rating may be conveniently revalidated up to 3 months prior to expiry and costs just £10.00 compared with the cost and time it takes to complete refresher training and a test with an examiner!

Our New Horizons landaway course is an ideal ‘hours builder’ for experience and counting towards revalidations!

Sound good? Then just let us know, we’ll sign you up to Aero Prompt!

Cambridge Aero Club

What an awesome couple of weeks for our students @cambridgeaeroclub !
4 of which are now qualified pilots! Huge congrats to Jacob, Tristan, Wilson and Harry who took full advantage of the marvellous weather to ace their PPL skills tests! 🎉 🎊 🍾 🥂 @harry.oshea03 gave us some insight into his motivations and why this means so much to him:

“I can’t really believe I’ve just passed! It’s always been my dream to learn to fly, I grew up near Duxford amongst an RAF family, so aviation and all its history has always been around me. So after 2yrs of hard work alongside my various academic studies it means the world to finally cross the finish! I can’t thank my instructors, in particular Amanda and James, the aero club team, my family and friends for their support and Adam my examiner enough for what has been an awesome journey, so far! I’ve got my eye on tailwheel next and I’m hoping to go into a career in aviation, with my final stage of RAF selection coming up, so we’ll see what happens, but a sky office of some sort I hope is only just round the corner! Thank you!! 😁”
Wilson too, was clearly over the moon after passing with flying colours!:

''I would like to say thank to everyone involved in the cambridge aero club for providing a safe and fun introduction to the flying world which I was lucky enough to be a part of. Flying has been something I've felt connected to from an early age and I very much hope it will be a part of my life in the years to come. I am proud to say my flying training was done at such a well run organisation, and would like to give special thanks to Tim, Adam and Anthony for getting me up to speed and dusting off the cobwebs for my skills test, as well as Cat and Mike and everyone else who makes the operation run so smoothly.''
Well thank you guys and we’ll done!! 🙏 and here’s to your next adventure! ✈️👏. #ppl #newpilot #pilots #pilotslife #flightschool #flighttraining #learntofly #aviation #avgeek #cambridge #cambridgeairport #duxford #iwmduxford
