Frequently asked questions
Where are you located?
The aircraft is based at Biggin Hill Airport (ICAO: EGKB), a short hop from Central London, but we can conduct training at the airport most convenient to you.
What aircraft do you have?
The Fresh Air fleet continues to grow. Currently we operate N55557, a 2017 Cirrus SR20. It is equipped with the advanced Cirrus Perspective+ avionics, with a full suite of safety-enhancing features including the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System, Synthetic Vision, Electronic Stability & Protection, Blue Level Button, and more.
How do I schedule the instructor and/or aircraft?

Do you offer aerial tours?
Fresh Air is principaly a flight school. However, we are happy to put together bespoke training packages to familiarise visitors to flying in the UK/Europe and London is the perfect place to start. Northern france is only a 20 minute flight away. In 2 hours flying you could be sipping whiskey on the dramatic shores of Ireland or skiing in the Swiss Alps.
How far in advance do I need to book a lesson?
The earlier the better. Due to limited aircraft and instructor availability, training days are best booked 3-4 weeks in advance. Ad hoc training and aircraft rental may be accomodated on shorter notice, contact email@example.com to schedule aircraft or instructor.
What is your rental rate?
N55557 is rented for £355/hr on the hobbs meter. This rate includes fuel and oil.
Do you offer trial lessons?
You bet. Come and check out what all the fuss is about! We can go for a 30 minute flight, an hour, or something else entirely.
What is your environmental impact?
We are proud to offset every hour flown in our aircraft with carbon credits. These are purchased monthly from Climate Care, a leading organization helping businesses and individuals 'turn their climate responsibilities into positive outcomes'.
Do you offer other aviation services besides flight training?
Fresh Air is solely focused on providing the best flight training possible, but it is part of Elite Aero Services Limited, which specialises in acquisition and aircraft sales, aircraft management and industry consulting.
How do I get checked out to rent one of your aircraft?
On top of the legal requirements for a valid and current PPL and valid medical certificate, to rent a Fresh Air aircraft you will need to have succesfully completed the Cirrus Transition Training course found on Cirrus Approach. This involves online, ground and in-flight training and usually takes 3 days to complete.
