The MP Flying Club is a friendly, CAA Approved Training Organisation based at Shipping and Airlines at Biggin Hill Airport, the closest aerodrome to the City of London.

We have three superbly equipped aircraft, including two vintage tailwheel aircraft along with a modern Grumman AA5B. Additionally, we have four qualified flight instructors including our CFI and Examiner.

We welcome new members interested in flying or learning to fly at Biggin Hill. If you are interested in finding out more, joining the club or arranging a trial flight please contact us.

If you already have a PPL we can take you beyond with many different add-ons to your skills.

MP Flying Club is THE Flying Training Organisation to start your adventure in aviation but we also specialise in taking your PPL flying skills to the next level!

Private Pilot Licence

The Private Pilot Licence (CAA PPL) is a qualification that permitsĀ you to act as the pilot-in-command of an aircraft for private use. For future professional pilots, it is also the first step in the aviation career.

Night Rating

Adding the Night Rating is a really great addition to your PPL. It will allow you to fly cross country, to other airports, during the darker hours of the day!
