Hampshire Aeroplane Club

We Want You To Fly

Have You Ever Wondered….


At Hampshire Aeroplane Club we offer a personal and tailored approach to pilot training. As we believe different people learn at different paces and in a variety of ways to each other we make catering for individual needs our main goal.

Based out of Solent Airport, our flying school is dedicated to deliver the full modular pilot training courses ranging from the Light Aircraft Pilots Licence through to the European Aviation Safety Agency private pilots licence. Hampshire Aeroplane Club serves the south of England. Located 15 miles South East from Southampton Airport, based at the former HMS Daedelus RNAS, we are ideally located to provide flying training in and around Southampton, Portsmouth, Chichester and the Isle of Wight.

Some of the courses we can offer include:

  • Trial Lessons
  • EASA PPL Course
  • LAPL Course
  • Ground School
  • Hour Building



Trial Lessons

Trial Lessons are designed to give the prospective student an insight into learning to fly a light aircraft. They are ideal for someone who has not experienced flying in a light aircraft.

PPL Full Course

The PPL entitles the pilot to fly in reasonable weather during daylight. Further training is required to operate more complex types such as those with a retractable undercarriage or more than one engine. Additional qualifications are required to fly in poor weather conditions and at night.

LAPL Full Course

The Light Aircraft Pilots Licence (LAPL) is a national licence that is not recognised outside the United Kingdom. It entitles pilots to fly “simple single-engine aircraft” with a maximum of three passengers within the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands. Flight in poor weather and at night or in multi-engine aircraft is not permitted.
