to North Weald Flying Group. The North Weald Flying Group is currently an eight Cessna and one Piper aircraft membership flying group based at the historical North Weald Airfield (EGSX). The airfield has excellent flying and club house facilities and is also conveniently situated close to Junction 7 of the M11 Motorway, between Epping and Harlow in Essex.

We offer

excellent availability to our flying club members with a fleet of very well maintained Cessna 172s, Cessna 152s/150s and also a Piper Archer II. We are the perfect choice for both experienced pilots looking for totally hassle free, no equity aircraft hire, or for newly qualified pilots and hour builders wanting to gain experience and confidence at the best possible hire rates.

The flying group

is run by an instructor and an instructor/examiner, so further training such as the IR(R), regular licence re-validations and cross channel familiarisation’s are all easily arranged. North Weald Flying Group also has a very active flying calendar. These group trips offer a range of exciting and interesting days out from flying into active RAF stations and even weekend trips across Europe.

Wherever you are

the North Weald Flying Group can take you further and offer you the most cost effective means to make the most of your PPL or LAPL. Please look at our FAQ’s page for more details and our current hire rates. If you require more information or would like to make an informal visit and discuss what North Weald Flying Group can offer you, then please contact us.

Hour Building Packages Available

Why travel abroad to build hours towards your commercial licence when you can build hours in the UK with North Weald Flying Group. The group is run by a commercial airline pilot and examiner with the intention of encouraging people to take-up aviation and then develop their skills and interests – whether this is for personal enjoyment or as a career. North Weald Flying Group has a great range of planes to choose from and unlike other clubs, groups or training organisations, North Weald Flying is happy to allow longer-term booking of planes. Rather than flying in circles close to base, this makes it possible to take the plane away and have a real flying adventure while also building your hours and experience.
