Whether it is your intention to build hours for commercial flying, get a private pilots licence to fly recreationally or to simply take a introductory flying lesson the Waterford Aero Club is without a doubt the most enjoyable and welcoming place to do it, I highly recommend it for anyone with an interest in flying and aviation.
The club has been great for hour building – the rates are perfect and Waterford airport is ideal for a new pilot
With a modern fleet of Tecnam, Piper and Cessna aircraft, the most weather-friendly airport in Ireland, excellent in-house flight planning facilities, and our proximity to many busy airports, including Cork and Shannon, Waterford Aero Club is the ideal choice for your hour-building activities.
Our hour building packages all give a discount off the Hobbs hourly rate. The packages have a time limit within which they must be completed and an exclusive membership fee according to this time limit. We can help you maximise your hour-building with a structured programme if required – this would ensure you fulfill any requirements for future licences or ratings.
For further information regarding our hour building packages, please do not hesitate to contact us via phone (+353 51 873133), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or call into our Club House at Waterford Airport.
