Aero Club De Limoges Tour and Trip in Limoges, Haute-Vienne, France


French flying club with English lady instructor who teaches in English

Flying Lessons
English-language Flying Lessons at a jar approved Flight School

Flying lessons and air-experience flights are provided in conjunction with the Aéroclub de Limoges whose rates are significantly lower than most UK flight schools—landing fees, where charged, are generally trivial compared with those of UK airfields.

Our local flying environment also provides more-reliable weather together with the superior facilities of an international airport.

We offer introductory, conversion and Private Pilot Licence (PPL) courses provided by Sue Virr who is a British Qualified Flying Instructor and Flight &Ground Examiner, fully approved by the uk civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the Direction Générale de l'Aviation Civile (DGAC) to conduct English-language training in both the UK and France.

NearlyHeaven is the perfect place to start or continue your training while also enjoying an amazing holiday.

From Bellegarde International Airport, you can fly over the local hills, valleys, lakes and mountains. Each trip can be a different experience with breathtaking views every time.

You can fly over your house or just see the area from a different perspective.

If you haven't flown before, don't worry.

Before your first flight, we will brief you with all of the information required so that you can enjoy the experience of flying a plane.

We begin the lessons in the Robin DR 400-140 aircraft. These are one of the easiest training aircraft to fly and have great visibility. The quality, reliability and ease of flying the Robin have given it a reputation as 'the Porsche of the skies'.

What does it take to become a pilot?

To enjoy the freedom of the skies, you will need to gain a jar (Joint Aviation Requirements) Private Pilot Licence (PPL).

This is an internationally recognized license for flying any single engined plane with a maximum weight of 5700 kg.

The privileges of the licence may be fully exercised on aircraft registered in any jaa (Joint Airworthiness Authority) country which basically covers Europe.

The licence is generally recognised for flying aircraft registered elsewhere though there may be some local restrictions.

The main requirements for gaining the ppl are:


•Completion of an approved jar ppl course comprising a minimum of 45 hours flying experience including at least 25 hours dual and 10 hours solo

•Completion of ground examinations:
Air Law
Meteorology
Navigation
Human Performance and limitations
Flight performance and planning
Aircraft general
Communication (radiotelephony theory exam)

•Medical certificate issued by a jaa approved examiner.
This may be issued in the uk, or any jaa country and must be obtained before your first solo flight

•Completion of a flying 'skill test'

•Although not part of the ppl, holders of UK-issued ppl licences require a separate Radiotelephony Licence for use in the UK—by concession, pilots under training may use radio in the UK without an R/T licence
NB Although we operate primarily in France, all lessons and examinations are conducted in English—there is absolutely no requirement to learn or speak French.

Trial Flights

For trial flights, you will be covered by the instructor's insurance and club membership though follow-up formal lessons will require you to join the club.

You could just enjoy the scenery, as you wish, but we are happy for you to 'have a go' at flying the aircraft yourself.

Normal format is a pre-flight briefing followed by a half hour local flight but we can tailor the flying time and mission to meet your requirements.

Subject to 'weight and balance' considerations, two back-seat passengers may be carried at no extra cost.

Qualified Pilots

If you need experience after completing your ppl or simply want a friendly co-pilot to accompany you until you are confident with flying in France, help is at hand.

The Aéroclub de Limoges has a variety of planes including Robin DR400-140, DR400-180 and Diamond Star DA40 aircraft for hire.

Despite being an international airport, Limoges is surrounded by unusually quiet airspace with very few restrictions on where you can fly.

Don't be too concerned about the language issue as French Air Traffic Controllers are all required to be fluent in English which is the international language of aviation.

Whether you are a member of the Aéroclub de Limoges or not, Sue is available for the revalidation or renewal of your jar sep (Single Engined Piston) ppl licence.
