Cost

The FI course must be purchased as a package. Packages include all items listed in “Training Course” above, as well as all landings and circuit fees, as well as examiner hire and aircraft hire for the skills test. 

 

The package costs £11,700 in a PA38, and £12,600 in a PA28.

 

We strongly recommend using the PA28 and finding a “course buddy” (which we can help with), to allow you to benefit from “back seating” someone else’s flights.
