Training & Examining Prices

All our prices include the final landing fee at the end of each lesson. Sywell aerodrome charge for every landing and touch & go, so to ensure that you are only paying for the runway when you are using it a circuit surcharge is payable when circuit training. This keeps the cost of training in the local area, and hence, the overall cost of training to a minimum.

Note 1:

The circuit surcharge is generally paid per session, or part session, of circuits on the day. Any circuit surcharge which has been pre-paid for convenience carries no discount and is subject to change if the aerodrome movement fees change. In this case either the difference will be charged, or the balance will be amended to reflect the change. As much notice as possible will be given before any change in the prices.
