What can I expect on the day

If you’re looking for flying lessons in the Wolverhampton area, we highly recommend this flying school at Halfpenny Green Airport! This aerodrome just south of Wolverhampton and easily accessible from Birmingham is small, but perfectly formed, making it the ideal place for flight training.

Originally known as Bobbington Airport, this triple runway aerodrome was built as an RAF station that first opened in 1941. At the time it was Botha and Anson aircraft that would have filled the skies around Wolverhampton, as the site was an important navigation training centre during the Second World War. Civilian flights have been authorised here since 1961 and nowadays the airfield is home to some 70 aircraft.

And Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport (to give it its proper name) is a very well-kept aerodrome that is a delight to visit. Turn into the drive, past the distinctive memorial sculpture that adorns the entrance and you’ll notice all the blue and whitewashed single storey buildings. These original RAF structures and new extensions now house various businesses, including several flight training schools offering helicopter, microlight and light aircraft lessons.

Your flying lesson will be in one of the two or four seater Piper light aircraft operated by the flight school. They are an excellent choice for teaching in and this Wolverhampton flying school has both the Tomahawk and Warrior in its fleet. Easy to fly and reliable, these renowned aircraft are time-served and even commercial pilots with many hours of experience on big jets still reminisce about the day they first flew a little Piper!

And talking of pilots, not only are we offering the usual 30, 45 or 60 minute trial flying lessons here in Wolverhampton, you can also get yourself on the path to becoming a pilot with our three hour starter packs. These give you three flights lasting an hour each and you will undertake the same programme as any other student pilot. It’s a great way to see if this is the career or hobby for you.

Whichever way you decide to get airborne, these flying lessons over Wolverhampton deliver excellent training from friendly and highly proficient pilot instructors at an aerodrome that is friendly and welcoming. And last but by no means least, we can highly recommend Tea at the Green, the airport cafe in the control tower for that pilot refuelling essential - the full English breakfast!
