Until very recently I was an instructor at Aeromega Helicopters at Cambridge Airport. It’s a nice place, run to a very high standard. It’s easy to get to (A1/A14/M11), and the really great thing is that because the airport is put to a wide range of uses (such as trial lessons in Tiger Moths, fixed wing PPL training, Hercules re-fits, business jet operations), you get used to operating at a really professional level from the start.
I fly Robinson R22 & R44 helicopters, which most people use to train for their private pilot’s licence (PPL(H).
Head of Training Duncan Bickley at Aeromega has thousands of hours of experience in helicopters, and teaches commercial and flight instructor courses.
I really recommend him. He’s taught me loads, and I’ve seen a bit of action, as you can see from my helicopter video. If you’re looking for a place to learn to fly helicopters, or for further training, I strongly recommend you consider coming to see Aeromega. We have students who travel up from London, and across from Birmingham to train at Cambridge, as well as from the surrounding Cambridgeshire area, and have kept busy over the last few years, lean ones for some flying schools, which says something about the standard of tuition.
