    I Had a great flight Experience, I flew in a PA28 Warrior with Guy as my Pilot.

    Guy was really friendly and calm, he had a perfect manner and he instructed me to fly a circuit around the local area, which was both breathtaking and informative.

    I’m now seriously considering obtaining a PPL, a thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended experience.

    Having looked around at a number of providers of training towards a Private Pilots Licence, I eventually settled on the flying school at Old Sarum and haven’t regretted it since. The syllabus behind obtaining the PPL was clearly explained and the method that the school would take me through was easy to understand. It goes without saying that all of the flight instructors are first rate and, where possible, the school matched me to the same instructor throughout. There was also plenty of coaching and ground work completed towards all of the theory exams that must be passed prior to obtaining the PPL. There always seemed to be a new way to approach the subject if ever my understanding wasn’t there and I soon had all of the exams passed, leaving plenty of time for actually flying. In terms of the flying, I’d recommend it to anyone; being in control of the aeroplane as you cruise above Wiltshire and Dorset is simply unlike anything else. The quality of the instruction I received meant that I was ready to take the flight test before I’d completed the mandatory 45 hours so the pressure really was off and I felt fully confident going in to it. I passed first time and this is true testament to the whole team at the School. Now that I have my licence, I will continue to fly at Old Sarum and make use of the various aircraft that can be hired to me, at discount rates as part of my flying club membership. Thanks to all of the team, especially Ben, for getting me through to obtaining my PPL.

    Well the deed is done Old Sarum Flying School has gone and is now Gofly based in new premises next door to the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection soon, worth a visit if your bored. They will soon also be in the porta cabins next to the tower.

    The sad thing is that there is no social side for patrons of Gofly, nowhere to just sit and chat to other pilots or cadge flights!!. or just decide to hire a plane as the weather has turned out better than expected if of course there is something available.

    I know its a buisness not a club but they need pilots to also rent planes and some sort of social aspect away from the hurly burly restaurant at week ends would be nice as its far too crowded down there now to just sit and natter.

    All said and done its great to see that its a far more proffesional image now which instils confidence in trainee pilots, knowing that they will manage the course in a much more pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Good luck to Gofly may they prosper and get a few more aircraft for us to play with sorry pay with.

      Thanks Colin – I’m pleased to announce we now have an operational social/seating are in the aforementioned buildings next to the tower. Please feel free to use it as you suggest above – whilst it is not a cafe or bar of any sort, it is an area with seating, information and great views! for the use of GoFly students & hirers.

      We should also shortly have a “buddy flying” feature added to our online booking system, which should allow you to arrange to pair up with other pilots as you suggest.

      We are also planning numerous social events this year – watch this space for further news…
