We offer the choice of two main aircraft, all maintained and regularly serviced by licensed engineers in accordance with EASA regulations. Every aircraft is checked at intervals of 50 hours flight time and has a very thorough Annual (similar to a car MOT but much more extensive), which takes a few weeks.
G-BASJ is a Piper Cherokee PA28-180. The PA28 has been an extremely popular four seater training aircraft, being easy to fly, benign even in turbulent conditions and straightforward to land.
