About FLY365

FLY365 operates from the old RAF Wickenby Control Tower and runs throughout the year. Enjoy a friendly chat over a cup of coffee in front of a real fire. In short, we offer good hospitality in comfortable surroundings rather than the usual cold Portakabin of many other flying schools. There is an excellent selection of hot and cold food, bar and outside seating area outside. Members and their guests are always welcome. Some call in for coffee or hot meal even when they are not flying.

FLY365 Wickenby offer flights and training in only our Fixed Wing Microlights, or in your own aircraft. 

Our services include:

  • Trial Lesson Gift Vouchers
  • GFTs (General Flight Tests)
  • Aircraft Shares
  • Annual Permits/Servicing
  • Certificates of Experience and Tests
  • Flight Training
  • Microlight Sales
  • Microlight Servicing and Rotax Engine Servicing

Assuming you want to go ahead and learn to fly, you can do this at your own pace - from one hour per month to a full intensive course. Good accommodation is available locally if required. All training is completed on two-seat, dual-control aircraft, with an instructor, using radio intercom and training to the appropriate official syllabus. Training on your own aircraft, if suitable, is a possibility.

If you are thinking of becoming a pilot, don't be put off by the thought of winter. Although the British winter brings poor weather, some winter days can produce the best flying conditions. Flying on one of those crisp, clear, winter days over a snowscape, in itself, makes learning to fly worthwhile. 

FLY365 gives you access to the top of the range aircraft at an affordable level and we also offer lease shares in various aircraft. Once you have gained your license we can help you stay in the air for minimal outlay.  Please contact us for further details.


What you will need to do to get your license

NPPL Microlight (National Issued PPL for a two seat single Piston Engine aircraft with an MTOW of 450Kg

After approximately 12-18 hours of training, depending on commitment and aptitude, you will be flying solo ( any flying experience will shorten this rule). A good rule of thumb is that it will take around half your age in hours to reach the solo point. Before flying solo, you must be in possession of a current medical certificate from your GP (General Practitioner). However, a medical is not required to fly when under dual instruction.

To obtain your full unrestricted license you are required to fly a minimum total of 25 hours under training, of which 10 must be solo.

Ground exams in Air Law, Aeroplanes Technical, Navigation, Meteorology, and Human Performance and Limitations.  All exams are of the multiple choice type - exams can be taken at the FLY365 flying school. We also run a ground school in these subjects, to help those of you who have problems finding study time at home.

When complete you are then free to fly anywhere in the British Isles and Europe subject to normal air rules.
