About Brighton Aviation

Having learnt to fly at Shoreham in the 1980s, Peter Footitt finds he is back where it all started!

After finishing his career with British Airways on the Boeing 777 he has now returned to his first love, General Aviation. He is back at the airfield where he first went solo and gained his PPL and he is now our resident instructor and examiner.

“I have no hesitation in recommending Pete as a flying instructor, I have just done a check out with him in my own aircraft and he is the kind of instructor that makes you feel totally at ease, I have had a PPL licence for 40 years and flown with a number of instructors over the years and Pete is amongst my short list as the best.”
