Gamston Flying School

We're a friendly and professional flying school based just off the A1 near Retford, Nottinghamshire. We're less than an hour from Doncaster, Sheffield, Newark, Gainsborough, Mansfield, Nottingham and Lincoln. Gamston Flying School opened for business in 2011, but just because we're young, it doesn't mean that we're not experienced! All of our Instructors have EASA Commercial Pilots Licences and we even have our own in-house examiners!

About Us


Welcome to Gamston Flying School.

We're a friendly and professional flying school based just off the A1 near Retford, Nottinghamshire. We're less than an hour from Doncaster, Sheffield, Newark, Gainsborough, Mansfield, Nottingham and Lincoln.

Gamston Flying School opened for business in 2011, but just because we're young, it doesn't mean that we're not experienced! All of our Instructors have EASA Commercial Pilots Licences and we even have our own in-house examiners!

We're open for flying from 9am until 6pm nearly everyday of the year and there's always someone on the end of the phone - if you need to speak to us outside of these hours. We make sure our customers are our main priority, whether you're with us for a 30 minute Trial Flight or you're a returning "solo renter".

And that shows, because our customers continue to give us positive feedback! 100% of our students passed their PPL skills test first time in 2012, 2013 and so far in 2014! So, why not call in for a chat over a cup of coffee?
