    As a first time pilot CHC was a great place to learn. I passed my PPL (H) last year and they took me through all the stages of enthusiasm, despair and confidence building that you go through in learning to fly helicopters. Probably the most difficult thing you will ever do in your life. They are very experienced and professional, the Cabri is a great aircraft and very stable. They have geared the training to accommodate busy professionals/businessmen and accommodate the training to suit. Andy’s endless string of anecdotes make the many hours you will spend in the cockpit with him entertaining and instructive!

    After searching round many flying schools with the aim of perusing a career in the helicopter industry I was recommended Cotswold helicopter centre. Not only was the location perfect but on first impressions the staff were very helpful in providing me with all the details I needed to make my informed decision. Having now gained my PPL H with CHC I would highly recommend this training school for anyone looking to gain a licence either for pleasure flying or if your looking to embark in a career in the aviation industry.
    All instructors are knowledgeable and most importantly experienced in training. After spending so much time at Cotswold helicopter centre I’ve built up some great relationships with all the staff. The last year has been a great experience and I look forward to continuing my hour building with the guys at CHC. Great overall experience and the Guimbal Cabri G2 is a dream machine.

    Great and friendly atmosphere to learn to fly. Instructors are knowledgeable and more importantly experienced – not the normal low hour instructors that some schools provide. No hidden extras either! More importantly, the instructors understand the engineering behind the Cabri.

    A professional and friendly team of both management and instructors made the whole PPL course a great experience and very enjoyable. The Cabri is a great Heli to learn in and definetly allows you to build your skill up to a high level.

    Very happy with the service CHC have provided to date. Allways had aircraft availability (and even choice) and instruction is done with the benefit of a thorough briefing prior to each exercise. Looking forward to progressing my PPL.H with the team… The Cabris is in no doubt an excellent aircraft, in comparism to the Robinson R22, to use an analogy I would say its like driving a Tesla over an e-type. Bang on.

    1. The Bose A20 headsets installed in each aircraft are also a nice touch..

    Been training with CHC for around a year and enjoyed every minute with them. Very near to completing my PPL (H) on the Cabri G2. Very friendly, professional instructors who look after all the detail. The Cabri G2 is a fantastic helicopter, very safe, very modern and a joy to master. Hoping to try Night Flying and maybe the R44 in the near future with CHC at Cotswold (Kemble) Airport.

    Friendly enjoyable atmosphere and no hidden extras, which unfortunately was not the case at the school I started my PPL(H) at!
    Only halfway through my PPL(H) but very much look forward to the rest of my training with Cotswold Helicopters and would highly recommend to others.

    Can’t fault anything about CHC. The instructors have great knowledge and are very friendly particularly when starting up making it very enjoyable. The helicopters are immaculate and the Cabri G2 is quite something. The method of teaching is both thorough and suitably paced. cant fault the facilities either.

    Fantastic Instructors, completed PPL (H) last year with them, had plenty of patience with my slow training schedule. Learning on the Cabri G2 was the icing on the cake!

    Cotswold helicopter center Is the perfect place to learn to fly. The Cabri G2 is fantastic, modern and safe. Preflight briefs are explained so well even a dummy like me can understand. The instructors are highly skilled and make learning easy and enjoyable. The whole team are friendly.
    The airport controllers are patient and understand your learning.

    I can’t recommend this flying school enough. The instructors are professional yet make the experience fun. There are lots of opportunities and trips to fly around the country and abroad. Being the Guimbal Helicopters distributor really does show in their knowledge about the aircraft and industry. If you are going to fly a helicopter, fly with Cotswold Helicopter Centre.

    Probably the most well run aviation offices I’ve been too. Always happy to help. Best instructors around, all with a great sense of humour and very easy to get on with. Cabri G2 as a trainer aircraft, probably the best experiences of my life flying those helicopters! With the AS350 and Robinson R44 also available, again two more fantastic aircraft. Highly recommend choosing here to learn to fly.

    Fantastic flying school with excellent tuition from some of the friendliest instructors I’ve been taught by. The Cabri G2 is their choice of training aircraft and the modern display and open cockpit make it an enjoyable helicopter to learn to fly in. Located at such a welcoming airport, I’m glad I was recommended to complete my PPL(H) at this school and fully look forward to completing it during the coming year.

    Fantastic set-up, the instruction is the best around by far and the Cabri G2 makes the perfect training aircraft. Facilities are brilliant at Cotswold Helicopter Centre and nothing is ever to much trouble. Always lots of opportunities to get involved including organised flying trips to France on a regular basis.

    A first class operation with instructors and operations staff who are very experienced both in the aircraft and teaching style that apply the sylabus in a pragmatic and thorough approach.
