Affordable Flight Lessons
Flight training is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. Cloudbase has been offering flying lessons in a safe and fun envrionment since 1987! – so we know a thing or two about helping students obtain their pilot’s licence quickly and successfully.
All our aviation training is completed on our super light Flight-Design CT at Redhill Aerodrome in Surrey. This enables our students to train for the most affordable and straight-forward licence available – the NPPL(Microlights).
Requirements for the issue of the licence involve;
Why Get a NPPL(M) instead of a PPL(A)?
The NPPL(M) allows you to fly landplanes weighing up to 450 kg, within the UK. This more than suits the majority of pilots and means you can get the licence in only 25 hours compared to the 45 hours required for the PPL(A). Ultralight aircraft like the Flight Design CT at Cloudbase’s flight school are far cheaper to run, so the cost of learning to fly is far lower. Getting your NPPL(M) license at Cloudbase is on average £4000 cheaper than if you carry out the PPL(A) syllabus at other schools!

- Which new airfield can you fly to??
Cloudbase is based at Redhill aerodrome which is easily accessible from London, Surrey, Sussex, Kent and Essex. When you take flying lessons at Redhill, you gain great experience in a busy ATC environment. We find this prepares pupils well for when they have obtained their flying licence and want to take on more challenging flights.
