At Donair Flying Club we are uniquely placed to offer both flight training and aircraft hire from a friendly club
environment at East Midlands Airport near to Nottingham, Leicester and Derby. We offer trial flights / trial flying
lessons and flight training for the Private Pilot's Licence (PPL), Night Rating, Instrument Meteorological Conditions
(IMC) Rating, Multi Engine Rating, the Flight Instructor Course and new for 2013, the Flying Compendium.
Formed in the 1960's, Donair Flying Club has gained an enormous wealth of experience as a flying school, with the training of hundreds of Private Pilots, undertaking Air Cadet contracts for the RAF and the training of Flying Instructors, many of whom have gone on to become Commercial Pilots. Flying training with Donair is justifiably well regarded, with high standards of instruction and an excellent past record. In early 2008, Donair acquired East Midlands Flying School which now forms part of a larger flying club under the Donair East Midlands title. We extend a warm welcome to all ex EMFS members.
We specialise in arranging courses to fit the student's own personal requirements, in addition to the full and part-time courses run seven days a week
throughout the year. Operating from East Midlands Airport, enables Donair Flying Club to take full advantage of the wide range of
facilities offered by a large International Airport. For example: Instrument Landing System and Radar Coverage for instrument training, customs facilities
for international flights and 24hrs, 7 days per week operation. Donair Flying Club operates a modern fleet of aircraft, ranging from the popular
Cessna 152 trainers to twin engine touring craft. Our own highly skilled engineers maintain all of the fleet.
