Harvard Conversion Course and Dual Training
If you're looking to try your hand at operating the Harvard safely and proficently to a high standard then look no further. With our partner, The Warplane Flying Company, we offer two courses that will help you achieve this. All training is conducted from West London Aero Club and you will fly in skies over Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. There are excellent road and rail links to London so getting to White Waltham airfield is easy, wherever you may be travelling from.
The Long Course
The Long Course offers pilots, with little experience flying warplanes, a chance to progress to the standard required to fly the Harvard. Pilots will be given plenty of flight time to become familiar with the aircraft. This package includes 5 hours dual instruction with 10 hours ground pre flight briefing and post flight debriefing; a complimentary set of handling notes, flying overall and a checklist are included. All this for the price of £4999.
The course will cover the following:
Slow speed handling and stalling
Landing in both three point and wheeled landings
The Abridged Course
The Abridged Course is aimed at more experienced pilots, who are already familiar with high performance tailwheel aircraft, who wish to obtain the standard required to fly the Harvard. Pilots will be exposed to the complete flight envelope of the aircraft, as well as its safety and operating procedures and areas to avoid when flying. 2 flights of 45min duration each, with a one hour ground briefing on tail wheel techniques and the Harvard technical brief. This package includes a complimentary set of handling notes, flying overall and a checklist. Prerequisites are a holder of an PPL (minimum) with a medical certificate. We are offering this course for the price of £1550.00.
If you would prefer to undertake dual training on a pay as you go basis, we can offer this. Please get in touch so we can discuss.
