The Rural Flying Corps has been providing flight training at Bourn Airfield for the Private Pilot’s Licence here in rural Cambridgeshire since 1977. We operate on an old WWII airfield with hard runways and are the only flight school on the airfield. Learn to fly in a friendly relaxed atmosphere and with about 120 members you will be assured a warm welcome. We also offer trial lesson gift vouchers for that special present.

Whether it’s a first trial lesson, training to achieve your Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) or further advanced training and solo hire, the Rural Flying Corps has something for you. We are a small friendly club operating from part of a second world war airfield, steeped in history and benefiting from open airspace and two tarmac runways.

Many of the several hundred people who have obtained their Private Pilot’s Licence at Bourn have progressed to a career in commercial aviation and are now flying jet aircraft with the major airlines. Others simply fly for pleasure or continue to learn and obtain further ratings.

The Night Qualification is a popular choice after completing the PPL which only requires a few hours of tuition. This rating can also now be completed during PPL training. As Bourn is not licensed at night there is a requirement to fly to a licensed airfield for solo take offs and landings.

The IMC (Instrument Meteorological Conditions) rating gives you the ability to fly in poorer weather conditions and above cloud. Pilots are trained in instrument flying and the use of at least two navigation aids.

Courses For Non-PPLs:

Safety Pilot
Have your partner trained to fly as a safety pilot. This course usually lasts about 5hrs but can be tailored to your individual requirements. The training is built around the concept of a non-pilot being obliged to control an aeroplane in flight due to the unexpected incapacity of the pilot. Participants in this course will be trained to maintain a safe standard of control, navigate to a nearby airfield, locate and land on the correct runway without damage to the aeroplane or its occupants. The course will be taught in an easy-to-understand way without delving into a lot of theory and mechanical matters and will promote safety and confidence.
