|The Cotswold Flying School is a small friendly flying training organisation based in the Control Tower at the newly named Cotswold Airport at Kemble
in Gloucestershire which is close to the catchment area of Cheltenham and Gloucester (30 mins), Swindon (30 mins), Bath and North Bristol (45 Mins).
We are CAA approved for flying training and also to conduct ground school exams. Our Chief Flying Instructor Chris Puddy is a highly experienced pilot with over 14,000 total hours and over 3000 instructional hours.
The flying training and aircraft hire is available in a modern 4 seat Cessna 172 SP which has a 180 hp fuel injected engine. The aircraft is fully equipped for Instrument flying,meaning that it could be flown on the airways in controlled airspace by anyone with an Instrument Rating. It also has a three axis autopilot and a built in GPS which can be linked to it. This modern comfortable aeroplane is a long way from some of the old aircraft that can be found in most flying training organisations, and everybody who either trains in it or hires it loves it.
We also have a Cessna 152, Piper PA28 and Tecnam P2002 JF.
