Aircraft - New Special rates for PPL members!

To encourage you all to get airborne again and fly following the lock down Alouette are now offering a £20 discount per Tacho hour, pro-rata, to all PPL members.

We have a Cessna 172 as from May 2020, and others may be added as the year progresses. Our aircraft are maintained to a very high standard and the hire rates are the most competitive in the South East.

Calculating the true cost

The actual cost for the aircraft is: £215.00 per tacho hour (including fuel, etc) + £45.00 for each touch and go + £45.00 for a full stop landing at Biggin Hill. For PPL members, the tacho rate is now reduced by £20. pro-rata, as mentioned above.

Of course landings at other locations have to be settled with the local airfield.

Instruction is charged at £36.00 per hour, from brakes off to brakes on. Flown properly and safely, the tacho time moves slower than 'real' time.

Flying membership is currently £120.00 per year. All prices include VAT where appropriate. These prices are current as of April 2020, but may be varied at any time. Check in the clubhouse for the latest figures.

For new members only, we operate a graduated fee scheme based on the month in which you join. For instance if you join in April, the full £120.00 will be payable but if you join in October, this will be reduced to £60.00.


Trial flights

We offer trial flights of one hour duration with a qualified instructor. The recipient will spend most of this time at the controls of the aircraft. The flight will be from our club house at Biggin Hill and will return to Biggin Hill.
