About the pilot coaching scheme
Our enjoyment of flying, and the ability to share that with others carries with it a responsibility to maintain good standards of flying and airmanship. The PCS provide Coaches to assist you not only with specific courses, but with any general training need. More information available here.
PCS Chairman and Head of Training Jon Cooke introduces the Pilot Coaching Scheme
Time to fly?
Statistics show that 20% of all homebuilt accidents happen during the first two flights and are usually caused by pilot error. The same is true of the first flight of any unfamiliar aircraft, whether it is a homebuilt, vintage, or microlight. You do not have to go it alone. The LAA has the Pilot Coaching Scheme - all coaches are current CAA and JAR-FCL certified Class Rating Instructors or Flight Instructors. They’re also your trainer, confidante and mentor throughout the process of you learning to fly your aircraft. Download leaflet
There is a new set of Pilot Coaching Scheme promotional leaflets available for download on this website. Firstly, a new look leaflet for you to print, read and pass on to other pilots who may be interest in joining the LAA. Links to other documents, including FAQs, are available via the links above.
