Once you have gained your PPL or LAPL, you are able to hire one of our aircraft for your own use, and our location and the surrounding landscape makes Goodwood Aerodrome the ideal choice for self-fly hire in the south of England.
Within minutes you could be cruising over the beautiful south coast beaches, across the Solent to the Isle of Wight or head on towards the rolling hills of Hampshire and Sussex. Head south across the Channel and enjoy lunch in Le Touquet or perhaps a day trip to the Channel Islands, which are just over an hour away.
Rest Your Wings
On your return to Goodwood you can enjoy the facilities of the Old Control Tower Cafe or, as an Aero Club Member, you can relax in the comfortable surroundings of The Kennels, Goodwood's private club for all Goodwood Members.
Aircraft Available For Hire
Goodwood Flying School has four new Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP aircraft available for self-fly hire. These state-of-the-art four-seater aircraft are equipped with a Garmin 1000 cockpit and provide the pilot and passengers with a comfortable, safe and pleasurable way to travel.
Piper Super Cub
Our Piper Super Cub started life with the Dutch air force as a L21B. It has been lovingly restored and is used for teaching the all-important tailwheel stick-and-rudder skills that this type of aircraft is renowned for worldwide. We also use it for the farm strip and flying instructor courses and it is much loved by all who fly it.
The Stearman is an open-cockpit American military training aircraft and this example was built in 1942. It is flown from the spacious rear cockpit while your passenger sits behind the 9-cylinder radial engine. If you have trained with us on the Cub, progressing onto the Stearman would allow you to develop your tailwheel flying skills further in a heavier, more powerful aircraft.
