About Us

Benson Flying Club operates three Slingsby T67 Firefly and two Piper PA-28 aircraft for training and hire. Training manuals and navigation equipment are also available to loan to pilots as are headsets and GPS devices for all flights in club aircraft at no charge.

To join the RAF Benson Flying Club please contact the club secretary using the contact form available by clicking the top right tab on this page. Once membership is confirmed you will be granted access to the rest of the website for aircraft and instructor bookings.

The club offers courses for the instrument (IMC) rating and night rating as well as biennial training flights, currency check flights, type conversions and differences training.

The club offers a structured programme of flight and theoretical training conducted by qualified civilian flight instructors under the supervision of our Chief Flying Instructor. The training culminates in a flight skills test conducted by one of our CAA approved examiners and, after successful completion, a Private Pilot's Licence (PPL). This allows the holder to fly light aircraft throughout the UK and Europe and can be extended with additional ratings and larger aircraft.
