About Us

Safety

Like all licensed airfields, we are inspected annually by the Civil Aviation Authority to ensure our facilities and practises are up to latest standards.

Our first priority at Western Air is safety of our students. To this end our modern aircraft are routinely serviced and have first class radios and navigation equipment which are regularly maintained and updated.

Our instructors are not paid on the hours they fly, so will not take a lesson if the weather is unsuitable for a student’s ability at the time of the flight.

There is a fixed wing maintenance company on the airfield so checks can be done as and when required.  If a problem is encountered on a pre-flight check an engineer is immediately on hand to sort it.

Whenever training is taking place at the airport our Fire & Rescue Service and our advisory Air Traffic Control is always in operation.
