BUDDING pilots have a better chance of learning to fly after facilities were expanded at Bristol Airport.
Bristol Flying Group, part of the Nightingale Group, has created new training areas.
The new facilities were opened by North Somerset MP Dr Liam Fox, who was impressed by what he saw.
Trained pilot Richard Nightingale, director and founder of the company, said: “We have fought for the opportunity to offer low-cost flight training from Bristol Airport and hope this new venture will make it a possibility for anyone to be able to learn to fly.
“We are very excited by this new project which also proposes to offer tailored courses for the physically challenged and financial scholarships. We feel that we are able to accommodate individuals from all walks of life and I very much hope that this will become an ever-growing community.

“I really believe that in opening this new facility, we are leading the industry in training and amenities for the current pilot.”
