Covid 19 Update – 5th November 2020

For the attention of all Westair students, members and trial lesson customers.

You will all be aware that a new COVID19 Lockdown came into effect on the 5th November 2020.  The Department for Transport (DfT) has now issued a statement to clarify what that means for flying schools, and a full version of that statement can be read on the DfT website

Unfortunately, this means we have no choice but to suspend all flight training and self-hire until after the lockdown ends (currently on the 2nd December).

Gift certificates will be extended so that no customer is disadvantaged. If you have already booked a trial lesson to fly in the next few weeks please contact the office to arrange a new date after the lockdown.  Please note, you may receive a flight booking reminder email.  Please ignore this as it is an automated message.

You can find more information about the government restrictions by following the link below and If you have any questions on this please give us a call.
