“I was lucky enough to have had and flown with Pete as my instructor during my PPL(A) training and more recently whilst doing a conversion onto a different aircraft.

Extremely knowledgeable, Pete’s calm, supportive and friendly manner is exactly what you need from an instructor and I have no hesitation in whole heartedly recommending him and his flying school to anyone wanting to learn to fly, build experience, add ratings or just have a unique flying experience.”
Michael Hayward

“Pete is an excellent instructor and examiner. He puts you completely at ease and teaches you in a very professional and encouraging way.

I can highly recommend Pete and Brighton Aviation to anyone wanting to obtain a Private Pilots Licence, renew, revalidate or add additional ratings to a Licence or just to go flying for fun occasionally with a very experienced pilot and instructor/ examiner.”
Geoff Patterson, recently retired B747 Captain

I came to learning to fly later in life after aspiring to do for a long time . I was directed to Peter and Dawn, and Brighton Aviation Ltd, by a friend who was a commercial airline pilot and recommended them. I never looked back from my first flight, through until completing the PPL (A) skill test. A thoroughly friendly, well operated company, with highly maintained aircraft, excellent instructors, mine were mainly Peter and Mark, both wonderfully patient and calm, giving clear guidance on what was required and when. I could not recommend them more, and the location and facilities at Shoreham Airport are excellent providing that unseen view of the South East coast that eludes those that cannot take to the skies. Thank you again to Peter & Mark, I could not have done it without them.

“I hadn’t seen Peter for many years, and hadn’t flown for eight years. I was excited and nervous – would I remember the basics, would I be embarrassed, would I enjoy flying after so many years??

Within seconds of meeting up with Peter (and Dawn), I was completely at ease – discussing what I would like to do over a cup of tea. Plans made, we walked out to his well equipped PA28, and I felt completely comfortable in the left seat. Peter talked me through the preflight and engine start, and there I was – taxying towards the runway… The aircraft is very stable in the air with good visibility, and it felt so reassuring to have Peter’s jolly but professional guidance beside me.

After an all too short hour, we were back on the ground again – exhilarated and wanting more please!!!!! I would recommend anybody who wants to experience the thrill of flight – be it for an hour or to renew an old rating, be guided by someone who has done it – trust Peter…you won’t regret one moment, and you’ll be bitten by the flying bug! Thank you – and see you there at Brighton Aviation.”

“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.”
Alberto Namihas

It was just great. Peter is a great teacher and explained everything so well before and during the flight that even I understood everything. It was a lot of fun to be able to land and take off the plane with the help of Peter. I rarely make recommendations, but I can recommend Peter as a flight instructor.
