Finest Hour’s professional and highly-experienced instructors have a wealth of experience teaching at both the ab-initio and advanced levels.  By special request, we can design a bespoke syllabus to meet your training needs, be this for basic flying training, a biennial instructional flight under EASA Part FCL, tailwheel differences training, formation flying or our speciality, taking a previously non-aerobatic pilot and coaching to the level required for the issue of an aerobatic Display Authorization.

Please contact us to discuss your specific training needs; our suggestion for the mix of aircraft types to be used (ours and / or yours!) will depend on your individual goals.  For example, in recent years we have employed both the CAP10 and customer-owned radial-engined aircraft as lead-in aerobatic trainers for warbird display flying, while a recent tailwheel differences course employed both the Tiger Moth and the CAP10 due to our assessment of the best way to bridge the gap between the individual’s previous flying experience and intended future adventures.
