Get a Head Start With Real Pilots

If you're considering taking your Private Pilot's Licence (PPL) or are already partway through your course and need additional tuition, we are here to help you achieve your goals. Flight training can be expensive, that's why it makes sense to be well-prepared and reduce costs as much as possible.

At VFE, we operate a unique flight simulator, the Garmin G1000 equipped Piper PA-34 Seneca simulator. This simulator is a real aircraft, with the registration G-BMDK, making it incredibly realistic and advanced. It surpasses the complexity of the aircraft used for basic flight training, giving you a significant head start. Mastering our Piper Seneca simulator will make flying the actual aircraft during your PPL training much easier.

Our Seneca simulator features real flight controls, switches, and throttle levers, providing an authentic experience. Unlike many simulators that offer limited visibility, our simulator boasts an almost 340-degree wrap-around visual display. This allows you to have a wide field of view, critical for flight training where situational awareness is essential. With this level of realism, you can practice circuit and visual flight training effectively.

Flying in our Seneca simulator eliminates the physical risks associated with real aircraft, enabling us to push your training further and accelerate your learning. In just a few hours with us, you can potentially save thousands of pounds on your overall flight training costs.

Our team of instructors consists of experienced and friendly real-world pilots who are eager to share their years of knowledge and expertise with you. Whether you're a complete novice or a current PPL student looking to enhance your learning, our PPL preparation program is designed for all skill levels.

Contact us today to learn more about how we can support you on your journey to obtaining your Private Pilot's Licence. We're here to assist you every step of the way.
