Booker Aviation

 

Booker Aviation offer modern DA-42 aircraft and good facilities for commercial training. They are based at Wycombe Air Park.

Pros: Can offer very short duration courses for military pilots due to the number of aircraft and instructors they have. They have a DA-42 NG which is the most modern version of the aircraft with more pilot aids and more power than a standard DA-42. They also can offer the SEP CPL and SE IR which is required for BFJT graduates. Feedback from previous military pilots has been excellent.

Cons: Not ELCAS registered yet. If you have ELCAS credits towards a rotary conversion then it might be a good idea to complete the 6hr MEP course at one of the ELCAS schools and then use Booker for the remainder of the training. All training is completed in the DA-42 so easily transferrable between schools. These are not fixed price courses like the other providers.
