Flying - maybe it's a lifetime ambition, perhaps a desire for a new challenge or a discerning choice of a leisure activity that is truly different. Whatever your reason, why not let Shropshire Aero Club put you in the pilot's seat?
We offer a variety of aircraft for flying training to suit your needs and pocket - from both traditional and modern 2-seat trainers to full airways-equipped 4-seat tourers. High wing and low wing aircraft types are available for all options. Take a look at out Aircraft Fleet page for more details of our training aircraft.
Our team of CAA certified flying instructors offer the following courses:
Together with all Ground School tuition and examinations. We also have a dedicated Radio Telephony course and resident examiner which means you can complete your entire PPL course and become qualified to fly all at Shropshire Aero Club.
We offer AOPA Basic and Standard aerobatic training in our popular, fully aerobatic, Slingsby Firefly aircraft, together with aerobatic competition coaching facilities (with a small team growing!) for the more advanced.
Tailwheel conversions and training is now available using our popular Aviat Husky taildragger. Short field and grass strip tuition are also available from highly experienced instructors - the Aviat Aircraft UK representative and approved dealer is our very own Chief Flying Instructor.
Whether you are ready to take your first step as a pilot, or give the experience to someone else as a gift, you can purchase your first lesson right here. If you prefer to call us, or drop by in person, that's OK too.
