 All training is one-to-one and tailored to you, so that you get the maximum benefit of your time with our instructor.

You will learn from very high quality instruction from our experienced instructor pilots who have worked in the GA, Military and Commercial world for many years.

You will be flying in high performance aircraft, the T67M260 Slingsby Firefly and free air space close to Goodwood, which means that you will get maximum benefit from your time in the air.

Each of the options below can be flown as 1 or 2 flights.  Before you fly, your instructor will spend time with you to establish what you want to ensure that you get the training you require.

Flights are generally available Monday-Thursday inclusive.  The length of each flight is around 1 hour and you will also receive a comprehensive brief and debrief.

Enhance your piloting sills

A range of training tailored to you – with the prime aim of promoting safety, increasing your confidence and enhancing your piloting skills.

EMERGENCIES: DECISION MAKING UNDER PRESSURE - TEM AND THE "CAPACITY BUCKET"

Learn “coping” strategies so you maintain situational awareness (“SA”) and capacity.  Understand the “Capacity Bucket” and utilise “TEM” (Threat & Error Management) to good effect.  Our experienced instructors will tailor the training to help you to develop your captaincy, airmanship, decision making under pressure and ability to deal with emergencies.

Flight Exercises may include:

  • EFATOs
  • Engine Failure / Fire & restart drills
  • Partial Engine Failure
  • Electrical problems, instrument failure, birdstrike
  • Emergency memory items (initial actions or IA)
  • Forced Landings LSO PFL
  • Different ways to fly the PFL
  • High Key/Low Key positioning approach
  • Constant Sight Line angle
  • Wind assessment
  • RT fail procedure and rejoin
BETTER LANDINGS - STABILISED APPROACHES & CIRCUIT DISCIPLINE, INCLUDING RT

“Good Approach, Good Landing” – old, but true.  Learn how to fly a stabilised approach, refresh circuit pattern flying and joining procedures, improve your RT (Radio Transmission).

Flight Exercises may include:

  • Joins various – overhead, downwind, base leg (L or R), crosswind
  • Circuits – Various
  • Stabilised approach
  • Correct positioning & RT
  • Situational awareness (SA)
  • Final approach to landing technique.
  • Landing smoothly. Crosswind landings.  Short field.
  • Correct RT calls
  • Wind assessment
IMPROVE YOUR GENERAL HANDLING SKILLS - INTRO TO AEROBATICS

Most pilots will be aware of parts of their flying they’d like to improve, such as joining procedures, transiting controlled airspace, “lost” procedures, flying circuits accurately etc.

We will happily help you address your specific challenges.

We will tailor training to your specific requirements to help make you a better, more confident and more accurate pilot.

We specialise in exploring the whole of the flight envelope using scenario based training to help you better understand where you may get into trouble in the real world; it may just save your life.

UPRT - UPSET PREVENTION AND RECOVERY TRAINING FOR FOR GA PILOTS

Our General Aviation (GA) UPRT training will make you much better prepared to avoid, recognise and recover from flight upsets.  Your confidence will also be much improved.

Many GA pilots have little experience of flight outside the cruising performance envelope and are therefore most at risk of both not being able to avoid a flight upset in the first instance and may be poorly equipped to deal with loss of control in flight.

We offer a full day (2 flight) comprehensive course or a half day (1 flight) introduction to UPRT (which can also be used for your SEP Revalidation hour with an instructor).

Loss of Control in Flight (LOC-I) is the single largest cause of accidents and fatalities in General Aviation – in most cases the aircraft was still flyable.

You will learn both preventative techniques and recovery skills.

Gentle flights – G-forces only from 0.5G to 2.5G – no aerobatics or spinning.

Utterly brilliant Utter Nutter experience! I can't recommend the Utter Nutter experience highly enough! I had a stupendous flight with Mark "Greeners", who was brillint and great fun, and had a lovely laugh with Corinne, Thea was so lovely, and great to finally meet Jo, who'd been so patient with all my availability changes! Everyone I met was as nice as could be though, and I couldn't have enjoyed the experience more! I was exceptionally lucky because we still had to burn off some fuel before starting the main aerobatics, so I got to do some flying and then an aileron roll myself as well :D I can't wait to come back for Insanity! Thank you to everyone for an absolutely marvellous morning! Btw everything was indeed explained carefully beforehand, as other reviewers have mentioned, which is great, but I'd be lying if I pretended I was following everything during the flight, being somewhat occupied with trying to stop my knees passing my ears at many points (only a small exaggeration; the forces really are amazing) ;D I was absolutely thrilled from start to finish! Even better than I'd hoped for! If you are worried about feeling queasy, don't be- you have to enthusiastically confirm you're ready for the next figure before flying it, so you could always stop and do something calmer if you needed to :)

The most amazing experience The team at Ultimate High were amazing. The flight was exhilarating with acrobatic manoeuvres that were thrilling. I would highly recommend this and I will definitely be back. The pilot I had on the day was also a pleasure to spend time with.

Mind-blowing experience 10/10 UTTER NUTTER CHALLENGE for my 30th. This was my most insane experience I’ve ever completed, and it most certainly will be a hard one to top. I will never forget the day and I would certainly do it all over again! Big thanks to ‘Greeners’ and his team. You made me feel welcomed and reassured that I was in safe hands from start to finish. This experience topped my expectations and I think this has started to new high for me! Be sure to see me again soon Ultimate High team. Thanks again x

Amazing Space Flight Experience Had an amazing experience today at Ultimate High doing the Space Flight Experience. Our pilot Nick was amazing and made sure I was comfortable the whole time as I was apprehensive beforehand, can't recommend him and the rest of the staff highly enough. We haven't stopped smiling since and will definitely be booking to come back!
