Welcome to Carlisle Flight Training

Here at Carlisle Flight Training we are a friendly, professional, family-run flight school and aero club with a unique atmosphere. We are dedicated to keeping flying safe, fun and as easy on the wallet as we possibly can.

Alan Rayson, CFI (Chief Flying Instructor) and owner has been teaching people to fly for over 20 years since instructing with another local flying school, Cumbria Aero Club, which has now sadly closed. When the opportunity arose for Alan and his wife Helen to start their own school, they leapt at the chance.

Whether you're looking for a one-off experience, a new challenge, the start of a new career or maybe you already have a PPL and just want to hire an aircraft, we can help. Give us a call or come and see for yourself.

Our Mission Statement
Carlisle Flight Training is committed to giving quality and value in pilot training. Our purpose is to open up the world for people who desire to see it from above, to provide robust pilot training for those who wish to progress, or a safe, positive engagement for those who only want to experience. We excel to exceed.

Well done to Keiran on passing his IMC written exam on Friday 20th of March, one step closer to flying in those fluffy clouds!
