Carlisle Flight Training

Carlisle Flight Training

Carlisle Flight Training are a friendly, professional, family-run flight school and aero club with a unique atmosphere. They 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.
