Westair Flying School
Flight Training Update 5th August 2020

For the attention of all Westair students and members.

It is a difficult time for flight training, operating in the face of the restrictions imposed on everybody by COVID-19.

Return to operations will be achieved by a step by step approach which manages the risk to customers, instructors and all staff supporting the flying school operation.

Everyone who participates in this flying school activity will be required to read all the documents and risk assessments associated with this activity, and will be required to sign a document stating that they understand:

  • the procedures involved,
  • the risks involved,
  • how the risks are being managed,
  • their responsibilities and obligations in the management of those risks, and
  • that they do so on a voluntary basis, having read the documents, assessed the risks, and deciding that they still wish to participate in the flight training activity at Westair.

You can access the full document by clicking on this link Westair COVID-19 – Flying School Return to Operations – Overview Document. The declaration is at the end of the document and must be downloaded, printed and signed and handed to the Duty Manager before you next fly.

If you have any questions please contact the flying school on 01253 342660
