He’s a working commercial pilot who drives those big jets but he also absolutely loves taking newbies up for their first flying lessons. He’s joined by the likes of Benjamin Salvador Melanie and Si who are all equally passionate when it comes to flying. Indeed not only is Eden the only CAA Approved Training Organisation (ATO) at Teesside International it’s also the only one in the whole of the North East so you’re going to be in very capable hands for your flight training. Patience enthusiasm and putting the student at ease in the cockpit before their flight is a given here! As for the planes it’ll be a two seater Piper Tomahawk or four seater Piper Warrior. Statistically more pilots have passed their flight training exams in a Piper than any other model of plane. That’s why the reliable robust Pipers were chosen.
