Helicopter Training at Coventry
Helicopter Flight School
Why did Heli Ride choose to establish a base at Coventry Airport? Coventry Airport is a modern, and in GA terms, a large well equipped airport. The airport is quickly establishing itself as a General Aviation specialist airfield with training and Self Fy Hire at the core of its business.
The location of Coventry Airport is a another huge draw, with exceptional travel links to local motorway network; M6, M1 and M40 motorways all within a 15 minute drive. The Airport is the closest GA airport to two of the countries major population centres, with both Coventry and Birmingham within a stones throw of the aerodrome.
Coventry airport has also great position with regard to airspace from a training point of view the aerodrome is within easy access to lovely class G airspace to the south and has the advantage of being very close to Birmingham international zone, which offers the student pilot a huge range of flight training possibilities - The complex zone of Birmingham, if trained correctly will arm the student with the correct procedure and importantly the confidence to traverse any major airspace in the country!
The future of GA in the UK has become a major concern for many aviation companies in the country with almost 25% of our GA airfields being lost in the last three years alone and many face an uncertain future. The attitude of the management at Coventry is forward thinking and progressive and the plans to develop the airport in the next few years are impressive.
So, if you want to be part of this exciting future in General Aviation why not visit Heli Ride Coventry, either to say "hi" or to find out more about helicopter flight training at Coventry and in the greater Midlands area.
