Flying Schools

A helicopter from Northumbria Helicopters Flying School

Unknown to most of the commercial passengers who travel through Newcastle International Airport, there are two flying schools on site:

Northumbria Helicopters

Based at the airport for 10 years, Northumbria Helicopters offers private and commercial pilot training with experienced and friendly staff. Trial lessons can be arranged.

In addition gift vouchers are available for pleasure flights and city tours and bespoke trips and air charters can be organised to suit individual requirements.

Northumbria Helicopters were involved in the photography for this new website. In October 2013 they flew around the region with landscape photographer David Webb on behalf of Newcastle Airport, resulting in some of the stunning images you can see throughout the website.
