Learning to fly at the RAF Waddington Flying Club
Learning to fly is one of life’s great adventures, and for more and more people it’s also one of life’s greatest pleasures. Unrestricted freedom of movement in three dimensions means that learning to fly provides one of life’s most challenging and rewarding activities, and is not only fun but can lead to interesting career and travel opportunities. This then is your opportunity and an invitation to begin the adventure of a lifetime.
When you join the RAF Waddington Flying Club (WFC) you can rest assured that you’re in very capable hands. We’ve been providing flight training in accordance with the regulations laid down by aviation’s governing body, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) since 2003 and are widely recognised as one of the RAF Flying Clubs’ Association’s leading flying training providers.
Learning to fly isn’t an overnight process, but it’s not an impossible dream either
We operate a mixed fleet of light aircraft types that includes two latest-generation Tecnam P2008JC aeroplanes, both equipped with modern avionics and glass cockpits. All of our aircraft are strictly maintained to EASA 145 and Part M subparts G & I by approved maintenance companies who are often able to respond rapidly to any technical issues. This ensures that our students are provided with the utmost attention to safety and also benefit from minimum downtime.
