There are definite benefits to learning to fly in and around controlled airspace and the time can be used for training to a certain degree, however, every training flight at Liverpool has to transit controlled airspace twice during a training sortie in order to reach the local training area. At 20 minutes per training flight, transits make up a significant proportion of the airborne time that you are paying dual training rates for. There are no airspace transits required from Hawarden and lessons can begin immediately once airborne – which gives you a significantly improved chance of completing your training within the course minimums.
