ItemChiltern Airsports Ltd
Chiltern Park Aerodrome

Chiltern Airsports is a flying training school located on the gentle south western slopes of the Chiltern Hills between  Reading and Oxford. We operate our own grass airfield and keep the aircraft in our hangar,  the airfield is known as  Chiltern Park Aerodrome.

Within our comfortable split level air conditioned clubhouse are attractive spacious classrooms and there is a sunny viewing deck outside. Open all year we will often fly till sunset enjoying long summer evenings in the air.

We will train you to gain a National Private Pilots Licence with a rating which allows you to fly microlight aircraft. We offer a  bespoke, tailored training package integrating flying training with ground school. You will be looked after by your own instructor;  when the weather is good he will take you flying and when it isn't he will take you for ground school.
