Standard Membership Flying Rates for 2024.  


Standard membership costs £15 a year

Existing PPL (or LAPL) holders (on Standard membership) fly @

£162.50 + VAT = £195 per tacho hour.

(A "tacho hour" is measured by an instrument linked to the engine's rev counter, or tachometer.)


Pilot training is conducted by our hosts at Rochester - Skytrek Flying School - but lessons may be taken in our C-172 aircraft as shown opposite.  It's a 4-seater so its extra space and seat adjustments mean many will find it more comfortable than the smaller 2-seaters often used for training.  That, plus the fact it's the aircraft you will fly with us when you have your licence, means that overall it can be a more effective learning platform (than a 2-seat C-152).  

CSFC's flying rate for student pilots in our aircraft is £143.50 + VAT = £172.20 incl VAT.  This is a brakes off/on hour to coincide with the entries in a student's log book.  ADDITIONALLY Skytrek will levy a fee for their instructor plus administration of the training.  This is currently £60 per brakes off/on hour (incl VAT).

The total for a 1 hour (brakes off/on) lesson (using the CSFC aircraft but Skytrek training facilities) is therefore £232.20.


Complete 5 lessons in our CSFC aircraft G-WACW (Standard Membership tariff) and get 50% off aircraft hire for the 6th.

Lessons must be completed during 2024 and offer limited to first 6 lessons as a student pilot (not for post PPL/LAPL training).   

Aircraft hire is £143.50 (excl VAT) per brakes off/on hour so 50% = £71.75 and the cost of that 6th hour becomes £146.10 (fully inclusive of VAT & Skytrek instructor fee).
