Glasgow Flight Centre was delighted to support 5 visiting Piper PA28’s from Freedom Aviation.
4 of the the 5 aircraft were captures by one of the members of Glasgow Airport Spotters Group. G-CLEA was the 5th one which managed to slip in unnoticed!
The group of aspiring commercial pilots arrived on their last leg before flying home to the south. It was a quick comfort break and refuel for the visitors. For us, it was the first ‘real’ visitors making use of the new services at Glasgow Airport.
The aircraft were booked in using our PPR form the day before. The process was trouble free and the airport were aware of the visit beforehand.
While there were no real issues, we identified a few areas for improvement. The main one being to ensure pilot wear a yellow jacket when they are out of the aircraft.
We look forward to welcoming more as the restrictions are relaxed in the coming weeks.
Now is the time to start planning your trip to Glasgow.
While current Covid restrictions prohibit visits we are getting closer to the time when we can start to welcome fellow aviatiors. We are ready to help ensure your visit to Glasgow is a good one!
Whether you are simply keen to add Glasgow Internation Airport to your logbook during a quick visit or take some time to visit the city, we will be happy to ensure you can park up and be ready for your departure at your convenience.
Remember to register online ready for your visit. You only need to do this once to cover you for any future visits.
Glasgow Airport already has a small number of light aircraft based at the flying school. However, it has not been an attractive option for visitors from other flying schools and clubs.
The busy FBO’s provide excellent facilities for corporate and executive aircraft. However, this level of service is not required by the average private flyer and until now there has be no other option..
Glasgow Flight Centre can provide the services needed for visiting non-commercial light aircraft (<2T MTOW) at our club facilities. This makes Glasgow the ideal location in the West of Scotland for visitors.
