About the experience

If you're looking for a London flying school with a fleet of state-of-the-art light sport aircraft, look no further! At Damyns Hall Aerodrome, you'll find several Pipistrel planes offering unparalleled ultralight flying experiences right at the edge of Essex. Even for those not up to date with the latest in light aircraft, it may come as a surprise that the Alpha Trainer by the renowned Slovenian aviation company Pipistrel is actually classified as a microlight. Its lightweight design, achieved through the use of carbon fiber and Kevlar, sets it apart. Despite this classification, it doesn't resemble a typical microlight. With its sleek pod-like cabin and curvy fuselage, the aircraft not only looks cute and funky but also boasts practicality. When you open the gull-wing doors, you're greeted by an unusually roomy interior for a small aircraft. Thanks to its large windows and lack of wing struts, the Alpha offers exceptional visibility, making takeoffs and landings at this Essex aerodrome a joy for both pilot and passenger. By the end of your time with this London flying school, it's a safe bet that you'll develop a genuine affection for the Alpha. You might even find yourself yearning to own one and eagerly returning to Damyns Hall in Essex for more airtime. While owning one is a possibility with the right resources, these packages offer an excellent starting point for your light sport aviation career!
