EFG Flying School: what do users think?
Konstantin Tsubarenko: Ok, this is for those who consider getting a PPL there.My instructor John was brilliant. Others looked ok too.The staff at the counter is a bit below satisfactory standards but it’s not a big deal.The issue is not with the school but with the Biggin Hill aerodrome where the school is based at.The aerodrome is designed for business jets, and they hate small planes there. The landing fee was £45 in 2022, the highest I’ve ever seen so far. Plus, all training flights are prohibited there.Therefore, for every circuit training, solo etc (the vast majority of all flights) you must go to Southend or Leeds. This adds up minimum an hour to each flight.Because of that, no one can complete the course within legal 55 hours. So, once I ran out of a prepaid package of 55 hours I had to pay for the flight time to Southend and back and the Biggin landing fee on top of what I would have paid if my school was not in Biggin. In total, you overpay about £300 for each flight.To be honest there are some advantages as you got more experience, especially with big busy aerodromes, airspace, ATC and all that. But going back I’d prefer to get the PPL elsewhere and have a few training flights to big airports.I personally had to pay £7300 on top of a standard package to complete my course in the end.No issues renting there apart from the landing fee and all experience flights are highly recommended!
Luis John: I just want or love to say thus us not just an ordinary flying school this is my where my life and journey as a pilot is. The staff Anoop and Carmen have been angels on my shoulder. I am very ever more than thankfull that I've been included as part of their family since 2016. Carmen and Anoop Christian hasn't only just been my flying director and flying instructor. They have been part of my life and they really know my circumstances. But they never give up on me. I'll keep with them all my life and always keep contact. I'm so blessed with these pilots and instructor assistant and mentor . Thank you all for being there for me. So anyone wants to do flying. Please visit EFG biggin hill as this is an amazing environment.
Judy Van Selm: Very professional. My daughter loved her flying lesson. They were running a little behind schedule that's why I gave the 4 star but I'm probably being a bit harsh. We were offered a drink while we waited and didn’t really wait too long.

Redhill Aviation Flight Centre: what do users think?
Mike H: Amazing flying experience
Martin Leese: Great place
Charles Carfrae: I completed my CPL here in late 2022 and I had a great experience at the school. Firstly, my instructor Laurance was excellent; professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. His previous experience in flying and as ATC was invaluable, and his style is relaxed to let you make your own mistakes whilst learning without overloading you but giving you the essential info you need. When you need it he has excellent simple techniques or mnemonics of the various aspects of the CPL/flying in the SE that breaks it down into easy to manage chunks.The school itself was fantastic, a really welcoming vibe and knowledgable Ops staff made going there a pleasure and they are happy to help you with any questions you have. All the instructors are really friendly and knowledgeable. The prices I found to be some of the best in the South and the Arrow I flew was well maintained. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this school for professional training.
aleks refrigeration: Extremely polite staff and top level pilot
Chris Lipscombe: An awesome flight experience day!
Henk Parmentier: An amazing experience!I had the 60 Minute Experience Flight and it was an amazing experience. Partly because it was such a nice day to fly but mainly due to the staff involved form James who greeted us at reception to Harry Grassom who was an amazing instructor who put me at ease during the flight and made the whole experience unforgettable!I highly recommend the Redhill Aviation Centre
G Larcher della Spalliera: My 1 hour aerobatic flying experience was amazing. Thanks to my great instructor Simon Canacott I learned the basics of handling the aircraft in the air while we were flying over the beautiful and picturesque Surrey countryside. The aerobatics maneuvers were breathtaking and super fun. Best time of my life! Looking forward for the next flight. Thank you
Matthew: Purchased my daughter a trial flying lesson as part of her 21st birthday present back in November. A busy year for her but finally went up yesterday, on a Bank Holiday Monday no less, and she had a wonderful time. Everybody we dealt with were friendly and her instructor proved superb. Will be recommending to everybody I know. A truly fantastic experience.
Marie Harrington: I did a 1 hour flight with an aerobatics experience with Mark yesterday. My partner had booked the 30 minute aerobatics experience through virgin experience days and we added the extra 30 minutes and a video.It was wonderful, lots of aerobatics including a half Cuban (amazing but the 5g was a bit much for my stomach!) and a good turn at flying the plane (not in the aerobatics part!). Mark was really kind and patient, gave a really clear briefing so I knew exactly what to expect, very unflappable and easy to talk to.Highly recommended.
Mansoor K: Amazing experience !
Mike Waller: Did a acrobatic flight with Mark over the north downs. Had a great flight really enjoyed it. I will be doing it again. If you are a bit of a thrill seeker have a go
George Payne: I had never been in a small plane before and to be able to fly one was amazing. The flight was surreal I had amazing views of london and all the country side in the south east. Finn who was the pilot was fantastic he explained everything very well which made it easy to understand what to do and was very friendly and easy to get along with. The staff at Redhill were very welcoming and would highly recommend anyone who wants to try to give it a go at RedHill :).
Ollie Salamon: Very good experience! Everyone was very nice and I will definitely be coming back
Sophie Kirkham: We took a pleasure flight with flying instructor Finlay. Excellent experience and very professional. It was memory making magic.
Rodney Smith: Excellent day, very well organised, we will return/
Gary Towerton: Fantastic Aerobatic flight experience with instructor Mark ,he made the whole experience even more enjoyable by including my family with pre and post flight photographs, I would highly recombed this experience to any thrill seekers, Also found the team at Redhill Aviation easy in booking the experience despite all the frustrations of the pandemic. Gary T
Martin Chandler: Good club..professional and friendly
Les Allen: what a great experience. mark my instructor/pilot made me feel at ease straight away and i had a great time flying the plane out and the superb aerobatics performed by mark then flying the plane back. well worth whatever my kids paid for it. mark was informative, knowledgable and had an almost child like enthusiasm for his job which passed on to me. great guy. great flight. great day. will probably treat myself to another go.
Jon Light: I had an aerobatic flight on the 19th of May with Mark wagnor and what a lovely happy bloke he was he made the experience what it was which was excellent very patient and happy to accommodate anything you need helps that Mark absolutely loves his job and that vibe spills on to you. I was abit nervous at first but he quickly managed to put me at ease and we had an amazing time. I'd 100% reccomend doing this and I'll defienatly be doing it again because of Mark. Thank you very much mark for making my first flight as special and as fun as it was.
H E: It was amazing to fly for the first time, would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good view or who likes planes.
Simon Sapper: A fantastic first flying lesson with the wonderful, welcoming and thoroughly professional Redhill Aviation.

Cubair Flight Training Ltd: what do users think?
kevin dermott: This is a good club with skilled friendly instructors. They train new pilots as well as renewal training and taildragger training. It's organised and efficient I highly recommend these guys and the service they provide.
Rudy D: I Highly recommend Cubair Flight Training. This is a great family run flying school & Aero club. Great variety of airplanes to learn from. The modern Diamond DA20 or DA40, the classic PA28, Tailwheel Super Cub or if you are more adventurous the aerobatic Slingsby.The staff at the front desk are extremely helpful. Their are several instructors you can choose from, all here to help you during the training. Finally they have their own in house instructor/ examiner for your test flight.Good to see a small family run business. They are here to share their passion for aviation.Great place to learn to fly, or for a flight experience.
Ludovic Elie: We booked an hour flight experience for my son's birthday and we parents went along too. Instructor was Roger and what a fabulous experience flying over Gatwick and to Brighton. My son got to take the commands from the start to just before landing. We all thoughrouly enjoyed this amazing experience.We can't recommend it enough to anyone thinking about it. Thank you very much Roger and all the team at Cubair!!
Lee Prebble: The lad on the desk was helpful and polite. The instructor was 50 minutes late and rude. This outfit is clearly not interested in its customers. I think it unlikely that I will get an apology.
James Hanly: Really helpful and professional. Great variety of aircraft. 👍
Richard Blain: Highly recommended, professionally run flying school that has an exceptionally warm atmosphere and is family run.
