All flights are conducted under our own Air Operators Certificate. Companies or individuals wishing to carry fare-paying passengers have to complete a thorough process by which they satisfy the Civil Aviation Authority that they are competent to assure the safe operation of aircraft. Once an AOC is granted the operation is subject to a programme of continuing surveillance including crew training and aircraft maintenance. These are the same regulations that apply to the Airlines. (Flying lessons do not require the same strict regulations of an AOC)
All our pilots are fully qualified holding a full Air Line Transport Licence or a Commercial Pilots Licence and are required to undergo a Medical with a CAA Medical examiner every 6 months.
Companies and individuals selling Pleasure Flights/ Scenic Flights without holding an AOC or using a non approved Aircraft do so illegally compromising passenger safety and insurance.
The aircraft used for a fare paying pleasure flight must be maintained to public transport standards through a specially CAA approved maintenance organisation. If in doubt passengers may check approvals with the CAA. Click on www.caa.co.uk type in search List of UK AOC Holders all approved organisations will be listed here along with their approved aircraft.
