Westair flying school at Blackpool Airport
With over 80 years in Aviation we have a wealth of experience providing private and commercial flight training. In that time, we have trained thousands of pilots! 
Based at Blackpool airport in the Northwest, we have a range of aircraft from light Cessna's for Private Pilot Licence training and hour building to our Diamond DA50 for commercial and instrument ratings.

We have a team of dedicated instructors and all of our ground staff are pilots too so they can give you advice based on first hand experience.
