The Algarve offers 300 days of sunshine a year.

What better place and weather to train or to continue and complement your current training than here. The option of combining a few hours a day flying with a family holiday should be considered to allow the trainee pilot to fly in the morning or afternoon whilst still enjoying quality with family and friends.

Your instructor and examiner Kevin Robinson can also offer ground school training and examination towards the ground school subjects required for the gaining of a licence.
