Here at Air Midwest we utilise the Cessna 152 (2 Seater), Grob G115 Tutor (2 seater) and The Piper Warrior (4 seater) to train our students for the Private Pilot Licence.
The G115 Tutor with its responsive handling is used by the Royal Air Force for training military pilots, and the Piper Warrior is the accepted gold standard pilot training platform used all around the world due to its unrivalled stability and docile handling characteristics, perfectly suited to the new trainee pilot. All of our aircraft possess virtues to compliment individual pilot’s requirements. Here at Air Midwest we will help you choose the right training platform for you.

You will receive the highest standard of training delivered in a relaxed, friendly manner by our flight instructors who will adjust their training styles to your own particular needs in a professional and effective manner to assist you to complete your Pilot training in a stress free, positive environment.
