Welcome to Shoreham Aviation Flight Centre

Shoreham Aviation Flight Centre is open for new members at Brighton City Airport wishing to get checked out with one of our friendly instructors and private hire aircraft from us.

We operate a fleet of Cessna C152’s and Piper PA-28’s, both 161hp Warriors and 181hp Archers are available for our members, with block rates starting at £118.80 per hour including VAT.

In preparation for the return to flight on the 12th April some of our instructors who are currently based at our ATO in Redhill have held a series of seminars. Accessible on Youtube and available to everyone for free, they have been designed to help everyone returning back to the skies to refresh their skills after the long break from flying.

You can watch these seminars by following the links below.

We are currently in the process of submitting our manuals to the CAA in order to be approved as a UK CAA ATO. If you are interested in starting flight training with Shoreham Aviation once this is complete, please just give us a call or email and we will be happy to help. Alternatively if you would like to start training sooner than this we will be more than happy to get you started at our other school in Redhill, Redhill Aviaiton Flight Centre.
