We usually recommend that people come and visit us at HQ here at Denham Aerodrome, to get a feeling for the HQ vibe. We are a bit different to other training schools in that we like to create a bit of a club atmosphere where pressure is kept to a minimum and enjoyment to a maximum. You’ll often find HQ’ers at Denham even if they’re not flying - just soaking up the atmosphere! This way you can check out the place and ask all of your queries in person too!
