Alouette Flying Club

We put the fun back into flying

Alouette is, first and foremost, a club which is run for the members, by the members. We have no employees but instead have a dedicated committee, elected by the members, who are responsible for running the club. This reduces our overheads and allows us to keep the cost of flying down, an all-important consideration in these days of rising prices. Our flying rates are still among the cheapest in the South East of England.

We use an intuitive on-line booking system that is accessible to all members, student or PPL. This instantly shows whether an aircraft is available and allows you to book this, along with an instructor if you are a student.

Trial flights with Alouette

Trial flights

We offer trial flights of one hour duration with a qualified instructor and the recipient will spend most of this time at the controls of the aircraft. The flight will be from our club house at Biggin Hill and will return to Biggin Hill.

Members online booking system

Alouette full flying members can log into the online booking system to reserve one of the club’s aircraft.

Only instructors and current Full Flying members of Alouette are permitted to log into this system.

Members are expected to abide by the rules of the club and are reminded that:

1. You may not book more than two time slots at any one time, in fact the system prevents this.

2. If taking an aircraft for a whole day, or more, a minimum tacho time of 2 hours per day should be flown. This may be averaged over a number of days, if appropriate. For instance on a 3 day trip, 6 hours tacho time should be flown in total.

3. If you wish to take an aircraft for a trip that involves an overnight stay, please talk to the booking service administrator first.

4. Please remember to cancel any bookings you can no longer honour.

Alouette Flying Club does not take any responsibility for any loss, damage or other problem caused by use of this system. Users therefore make use of the system entirely at their own risk.
