Aircraft Hire

Looking for a flying club based at Shoreham Airport to hire aircraft from? With access to an extensive fleet of aircraft we are able to offer aircraft hire with excellent availability and no enforced minimum hours.

From Brighton City Airport we operate both Cessna 152’s and PA-28’s available for private hire to our club members. From our other base at Redhill we have also a PA-28 Arrow and PA-34 Seneca available to hire.

Membership is valid at both clubs so does not need to be paid twice should you wish to fly from a different airfield.

Whether you’re looking to just keep current with circuits or planning a week long trip around the Scottish Highlands and Islands, don’t hesitate give us a call or email to have a chat to one of our ops staff!


Hour Building

Shoreham Aviation is in the unique position of not only owning all our aircraft but also having maintenance in house. Because of this we are able to offer the most competitively priced aircraft hire at Shoreham.

With an extensive fleet of Cessna 152’s and Piper PA-28’s used between the flying schools and leased out to other schools, we always have access to more aircraft if needed to ensure availability is never an issue.
