Our Training Facilities
Ardmore Flying School specializes in tailoring flight training programmes to suit the student’s individual requirements. The school is open from 7am seven days a week, 364 days a year except Christmas Day.
New students will generally complete their ground course theory first in one of our four lecture rooms that are air-conditioned to provide a comfortable learning environment at any time of the year.
Different instructors are assigned to each subject with an assistant. This provides an environment whereby students can get much needed mentoring and tuition both in and out of class. The largest class size you can expect to encounter will be 23 students; most average no more than 18.
Once students complete their ground course theory, they start their flight training. Whenever students are available to fly, so are we. Devising a schedule for flight training is best achieved through a face-to-face discussion with each new student.
Being the biggest flying school in Auckland, our fleet currently contains 17 single engine Cessna 172Rs and 3 multi engine Dutchess Beech 76e which give students plenty of opportunity to further their flight training.
Towards the end of the students’ flight training, they will engage on both single and multi engine simulators. Ardmore Flying School utilizes two simulators to enhance the flight training experience. It creates a controlled environment for instructors to teach in all weather conditions. They also have the advantage of being able to freeze the simulator to allow students to assess the situation and prepare for the next part of the lesson.
