I had a fantastic 30 minutes flying lesson with John today. Was very informative right from take off to landing. Very enjoyable, hope to be back soon.
Thank you BWAC, and Leon. Josh had a fantastically awesome flight sim experience. He's still smiling and chatting about it an hour later, which for an introverted, 12 year old, is highly unusual. I'm sure we will be back again.
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.
