The South Warwickshire Flying School is a DTO at Wellesbourne Mountford, situated in the pleasant Shakespearean County of Warwickshire, just a twenty minute drive from Royal Leamington Spa and only ten minutes from Stratford-upon-Avon.
Wellesbourne Mountford Aerodrome was brought into operation for the Royal Air Force in 1941 and remained a government owned aerodrome until 1964. It is licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority for flight training, with a cafeteria and modern flight briefing facilities within its Control Tower.
The School is located on its own designated area at the northern end of the aerodrome and the Club-house has a comfortable lounge with cold drinks and a coffee bar. We offer flying training at all levels from a full EASA Private Pilots Licence (Aeroplanes) (PPL(A)), an Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IR/IMC) Rating, Night Qualification, Flight Radio-Telephony Operators Licence (FRTOL), all on either a full or part-time basis.
We operate seven days a week for flight crew training and aeroplane hire. Wellesbourne Mountford Aerodrome has an Information Service in operation from the Air Traffic Control Tower. There are two tarmac runways, which are used by its home based aeroplanes.
Once airborne, aeroplanes receive a radar service from Birmingham Air Traffic Control, whilst in the training area. The School's location is ideal for flight training - no congestion or smog, just open flat farmland over which to practice your manoeuvres. Time and money are saved by not having to wait at the runway because of commercial traffic. The informal, yet professional, and friendly atmosphere enjoyed by our students enables them to learn much faster.
