    Our flying school here at Hawarden is a small and friendly school. Opened in 2008, we have a sister training facility based at Welshpool Airport which has been successfully training pilots since 2014. All aircraft are maintained on site at Hawarden by our engineering partner, NWMAS Ltd, keeping aircraft downtime to a minimum. We share a fleet of aircraft easily accessible between both schools.

    Here at Hawarden we are focussed on delivering the highest standard of instruction and our experienced instructors will ensure your training experience is both professional and enjoyable.

    Flintshire Flying School is perfectly situated for flight training and trial flight experiences. At the airfield there is a relaxed yet professional atmosphere and fantastic scenery to take in. The diverse landscape means students get to experience flying over both rural, coastal and built up areas.

    We offer a comprehensive range of flying qualifications structured to meet the needs of all aspiring pilots. The flying school operates weekdays and weekends and our door is always open so feel free to drop by for a chat.

    The Flintshire Flying School Fleet comprises 2 x PA38 and 2 x PA28. The fleet is mantained at Hawarden to the highest standards.
