Everybody at the club is very friendly, and I felt welcome and a part of the club from day one. I look forward to finishing off my PPL course and continuing to learn from the wealth of knowledge and highly professional team at B&W. 5 stars!
Bristol & Wessex Flying Club is a dedicated and professional flying school based at Bristol Airport. I have really enjoyed my training experience; the instructors, ground school and facilities are excellent.
Right from the first visit to Bristol and Wessex it was clear that this is the foremost school to learn to fly with in the Bristol area. With helpful staff, excellent instructors and informative ground school tutors I couldn't have hoped to find a better club to train with.
Between Nick and his ground school sessions, Gary and John on the ops desk, the lovely bar staff and, of course, my instructor Nafis, I am on the final stretch to getting that coveted piece of paper we call a license.
