G-BZNN After 6Running a flying school producing pilots qualified at the commercial and ATPL levels not only requires a team of high quality dedicated instructors and operations staff but in such a competitive market 'something else' has to set the school apart from any other.


The decision a potential student pilot might come to on their choice of training school will in no small part be based on the type and quality of the aircraft the school operates. It is often made by potential candidates after nothing more than a brief walk around or short flight, so the impression the aircraft give has to be the right one.

GYAWW 2014 Engine SmallG-YAWW is one of those rare Piper PA-28RT 201T Turbo Cherokee Arrow IV's. Built in 1979 it looks and feels very different to your standard flying school PA28 140, 161 or 180 Cherokee.

 

Even before work began it was considered a lovely looking aircraft and a joy to fly however after the owners asked us to give the aircraft a face lift, engine overhaul and respray it is now a truly stunning example of the type.

 

G OPLC in the wildG-OPLC is a type 8 de Havilland DH.104 Dove one of an incredible 542 made by de Havilland between 1946 and 1967 and sold to over 30 countries. It had many variants and was used in a variety of Military and Civil roles, in the UK for example the RAF used the variant 'Devon' and the RN the 'Sea Devon'. The type is considered to be one of Britain's most successful post-war designs ever produced.

 

EPA - European Flight Academy (Malta)

Malta based European Flight Academy recently asked us to provide and fit their aircraft with a new 2.0l Thielert Centurion diesel engine and carry out a complete panel redesign to install a glass cockpit upgrade, which would enable them to extend their fleet training commercial pilot students to the highest standards. This would require a new panel design and major rewiring to fit a GARMIN G500 display system, a GARMIN GNS430W GPS NAV/COMM and 2x GII06A Indicators as well as significant work by our Engine Workshop team to install the new engine.

 

At Airtime we pride ourselves on taking great aircraft and making them even better.

This was the case in point when the owner of the lovely G-LOLA, a 1984 Beech Bonanza, asked us to look at fitting a truly amazing digital cockpit. Now all we had to do was design and fit what he really wanted within the tight constraints of the space available.
