“I chose to learn at Herefordshire Aero Club here at Shobdon Airfield because it offers me a friendly club environment as well as a good flying school. There are other students to talk to, people to help out when I get stuck with some of my learning, and there’s always someone to sit and talk to”. The instructors are a great team – expecting high standards, but making flying fun too. I tried other flying schools but none compare with Herefordshire Aero Club” – Owen Williams, PPL student.
