CAA Declared Training Organisation
Moray Flying Club is a not-for-profit Military flying club at RAF Lossiemouth. We aim to provide cost-effective flying to all Service personnel from the tri Services of RAF, Army and Navy as well as their dependants. This also includes Air Cadets, University Air Squadron Members and their organisations' staff as well as Commonwealth Service personnel. Read More ...
Reservists and ex-service personnel can join as Associate Members too, as long as they help the club in some form. We are working towards becoming a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) in 2021. We also hope to offer Virtual Reality Flying Courses in 2021 as an integral part of training, or just for fun!!
We can currently operate 7 days a week offering full and part time courses to suit your needs. We are an Approved Training Provider for the Enhanced Learning Credit Military Scheme for many of our courses if you qualify that funding. Further information is contained within the website.
Based at RAF Lossiemouth on the beautiful shores of the Moray Firth, we offer tuition for the UK Part-FCL Private Pilots licence (PPL), Light Aircraft Pilots licence (LAPL), the CAA National Private Pilot’s licence (NPPL) as well as Night and IMC/IR Restricted Ratings. We can renew your UK licence and/or ratings and arrange Flight Test Examiners.
We have three single engine Cessna aircraft (two C152s and a C172) which can be used for training or hire by valid licence holders. A limited number of non-Service members are also accepted if they can contribute to the club through regular flying and they will also be required to do Duty Member duties at weekends/bank holidays as part of their membership. Non-members can be escorted on to base for trial lessons and introductory flights (including our gift voucher flights), but will need to join the club in order to continue training and flying with us.
All RAF personnel, regardless of rank or job description, are now able to use their ELC funds for a PPL/LAPL course or additional ratings. Your learning centre should know about this but if you have any difficulty draw their attention to the updated Leaflet 2511 a copy of which is linked. MFC course prices are available from our website. You will need to download the course you want to apply for to attach to your ELC Course Application. Once a Claim Authorisation Notice (CAN) is issued you can book your flying with us. If seeking a full time course or several flights a day, a MFC booking form is required with 10% deposit to secure both aircraft and instructor.
After a very long and successful association with Kinloss since forming in 1986, formerly at RAF Kinloss and latterly at Kinloss Barracks, Moray Flying Club is moving home to its new operating base at RAF Lossiemouth. Having been temporarily based at Lossie for a few months in 2019/20 we are looking forward to returning and integrating into the exciting new developments at Lossie.
During the next few weeks whilst we get fully established in our new accommodation we will remain contactable by email. Our new telephone numbers will be published in due course. The move will be completed by early March in readiness to resume flying after current restrictions end.
