As always in aviation, the weather plays a crucial role in flight training. Good conditions will ensure you gain maximum benefit, particularly during your initial flying lessons. As you progress, it may be possible to fly in less favorable conditions, but there will inevitably be times when we have to postpone your flight.

At WFC we are extremely proud of the standard of training provided; as a non-profit making establishment our aim isn’t simply to get as many students through the doors as possible but rather to ensure that our students are given the very best to make them the best.




Please note that you must be a member of the RAF Waddington Flying Club or 
affiliated to RAFFCA in order to participate in any of our courses or hire our aircraft.

A lesson normally lasts for around 2 hours in total and comprises of a brief, a flight and then a debrief. Initially the flights will be around 45 minutes duration but will lengthen as you progress through your course. If you are just starting out and embarking on a PPL or NPPL, you may be wondering at what stage you will go solo – most students normally achieve their first solo flight somewhere between 10 and 15 hours of training.
