Cranfield Flying School is the largest and longest established flying school at Cranfield. The airport has a worldwide reputation for flying training and aviation education and is one of the best equipped in the UK, with the facilities to handle training to the highest level with full instrument landing capabilities (ILS, DME, ADF and GNS approaches) and a long, well maintained, tarmac runway. Our team of passionate flying instructors are among the best in the UK and our fleet is tailored to training pilots from first Pilots Licence (EASA PPL or LAPL) through to Airline Transport Pilots Licence (ATPL).
The airfield and school is a situated on the same site as Cranfield University, famous around the world for its teaching of Aeronautical science and technologies.
Cranfield is ideally located for access from all parts of the county with easy road access (10 minutes for j13 of the M1) and 20 minutes taxi ride from Milton Keynes or Bedford railway stations.
The school occupies the lower floors of the building next to the control tower at Cranfield airfield so we are very easy to find..
It is specifically designed to operate as a flying school with two large classrooms for ground school teaching in classes up to 20 and several smaller briefing rooms for one on one teaching between instructor and student.
In an adjacent building along with our maintenance organisation we have an FNPT2 simulator for more advanced flying training.
