Flynqy Pilot Training is a UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Approved Training Organisation and Registered Training Facility, licenced to conduct training for European (EASA) Pilot Licences. We offer training for both Private and Commercial Pilot Licences and selected associated ratings.
Operating from Cornwall Airport Newquay, we are privileged to have the stunning views of Cornwall and Devon as a backdrop for our training flights. Our Head of Training has nearly 20 year's experience and has trained numerous private and commercial pilots from all ages and backgrounds. We aim to make all lessons fun and enjoyable, as well as effective with a mix of ‘old school’ stick and rudder skills and modern training techniques and procedures.
Flynqy Pilot Training and Cornwall Airport Newquay offer a number of unique training benefits, including:
- One of the UK’s largest runways – measuring 2744m (Recently shortlisted as England's only potential UK Space Port Location)
- A professional and formal airport environment – where we are treated with the same level of friendliness and service as commercial and military flights
- All year round flight training thanks to the hardened runway
- Full Air Traffic Control (ATC) Service, including Radar and Instrument Landing Systems (ILS)
- Unrestricted Airspace allowing us to train freely across Cornwall and Devon
- Fully lit runway allowing evening and night training
At Flynqy we insist on absolute professionalism, best practice and vigorous flight standards - but we also aim to have fun!
Flight Training Courses
Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL)
The EASA Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL) is a new European Licence which entitles the pilot to fly a light aircraft (weighing no more than 2000kg) with up to three passengers on board for private flights in visual flight conditions.
It's ideal for those looking to fly as a hobby or with family and friends for pleasure!
Private Pilot Licence (PPL)
The Private Pilot Licence (PPL) entitles the pilot to fly an aircraft in visual conditions and is the perfect licence for those wanting to fly as a serious hobby or for anyone looking to become a commercial pilot.
The PPL provides a solid foundation for progression onto further qualifications, including the Restricted Instrument Rating and Commercial Pilot Licence.
Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL)
After gaining a PPL, building hours and having passed all fourteen Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) written exams comes the Commercial Pilots Licence (CPL).
Here we build precision using advanced flying techniques as well as developing captaincy, cockpit and pilot management skills.
Post PPL Ratings and Services
Instrument Rating (Restricted) - IR(R)
This 15 hour course allows a pilot to fly in cloud and out of sight of the ground. It greatly enhances the pilot's licence and is particularly useful in our unsettled British weather.
We will fly range of approaches (ILS, NDB etc), consider a number of emergency scenarios and we will aim to practice these in real IMC conditions.
This 5 hour course is absolutely essential for all pilots who operate from Cornwall Airport Newquay with its sophisticated night time lighting system. As well as night flight, this course teaches you how to deal with a range of emergencies and failures at night.
There are no written exams or flight test required!
Renewals and Revalidations
At Flynqy Pilot Training our instructors can help you to renew or revalidate the ratings that form part of your licence.
Our instructors are able to conduct bi-annual check flights for SEP Rating Revalidations and LAPL Licences. Examiners can easily be arranged for renewals and revalidations.
