Ever since I was younger I have always dreamed of being a commercial pilot and for the past three years I have been in the aviation industry and I have decided now is the time to start the journey to being a commercial pilot. My girlfriend bought me a 60 minute trial lesson for Xmas for me and her to go on and I can say it was absolutely amazing! Our first booked slot was cancelled due to the weather (which is totally unavoidable) but we got swiftly booked back in. What I love about eden is the value for money is incredible! We got an hour flying experience and hour was from brakes even though we went out to the aircraft half an hour prior. It’s rare to find a school where the price is brakes to brakes. Big thank you to our pilot Marc and Eden for the wonderful experience and the start of my hornet with Eden! Had a brilliant flight as well!

The poor reviews that can be found on here contrast completely with my experience of Eden Flight Training. I found Eden Flight Training in early 2018 and have been using them ever since. The operation has excellent fleet availability, including on weekends. The online booking system for members makes arranging aircraft hire easy, far easier than other flying schools I have used where there is a monotonous phone call to try and arrange a slot you want. That said, at Eden Flight Training, if you do need to call the school for advice or if you need some help with bookings, the operations staff make doing so a pleasure. They are always on hand to answer any questions and generally have a chat about flying. The aircraft are well maintained and well equipped. Furthermore, the costs are kept as low as possible and even include the landing fee. Getting instruction is easy. The instructors of both flying and ground school all have a wealth of knowledge and experience. They too have good availability and continuity of training is embedded. I recommend Eden Flight Training to anyone who is interested in learning to fly, is already doing so, or is looking for aircraft hire after completing their license.

Opened an account and pre-paid £1000 earlier in the year. Then wouldn't return calls or emails when trying to book lessons, or more recently when trying to get the money returned. Still waiting for my money back. They are obviously having financial difficulty and wouldn't risk using them in case they do the same to you, look elsewhere. ==Response 29/10/2021== Their response is not true. I confirm there has been no refund as of today as I've had to go to court and get a CCJ against them already, dated after their apparent refund, and they are definitely not in a secure financial position otherwise it wouldn't have got to a CCJ (see attached image to confirm it is me who is telling the truth). That, coupled with their companies house page showing very overdue accounts, it does seem they are having financial difficulty and could be a big risk with your hard earned cash - as it was to me. I'd look elsewhere. Their "ops" team were responsive, until I pre-paid them that is. It was only when they had my money they stopped responding. As they only seem to respond on Google Reviews: **Can you actually pay me my money back now?**

What a fantastic experience, a one hour flying experience, in perfect weather conditions, where I was given the opportunity to spend the best part hands on. Mark was a great instructor, invited us to help plan a route, prepare to and get airborne. He was great with my 11 and 10 year olds, they thoroughly enjoyed it as I did too. Highly recommended.

I had a fantastic one hour trial flight last weekend, bought for me as a gift. I was warmly greeted by my instructor, Marc and his warm, friendly yet professional approach continued thought the whole experience. Marc took the time to explain the checklist and controls before taking off. I was handed the controls and enjoyed flying over Roseberry Topping, Whitby and Saltburn before heading back to the airport. The scenery is stunning. Marc pointed out various points of interest, which was useful as I was visiting the area. I know I will look back on this experience with fond memories for many years to come.
