    Great school to learn how to fly, kent is a brilliant place to learn and very picturesque. Even though they have had problems with the airport recently, they are still as good as ever with great instructors and availability. The engineering is top notch and the aircraft are always immaculate. I would highly recommend TG Aviation!

    I genuinely cannot praise highly enough TG Aviation. The management and staff are a credit to their company, and are more than willing to help in any situation when they are able too. It is difficult to imagine the stress and strain that they must have been under lately with the demise of Manston as an operational airport, but they have set up working bases at Lydd and Pent Farm now, and I for one, will continue to support them in any way I can!

    I now keep an aircraft at TG, and the owners and staff could not be more helpful, which is just as important after gaining all the licences!

    I learnt to fly with TG (several years back..!), and they couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming. As one who was hoping to solo on his 16th birthday, TG handled this very well – not building expectations too much, but at the same time planning effectively how it might happen, and on the day, going well out of their way to make it so (cross wind out of limits at Manston, so we relocated to Rochester for the day). In the end it all worked out, and they later went out of their way to get me skills tested a few weeks prior to my 17th birthday. I can’t praise them, or their instructors, highly enough.

    Having not been to the club for several years, I keep meaning to revisit and get current on their aircraft again. I hope this spurs me on to do so!

    I studied my entire PPL at TG Aviation and Thanet Flying club in 2002-2004 and took my skills test at Manston. I’d rate them excellent. The instruction was thorough, the instructors friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to help. A great place to learn to fly.

    Manston is a great place to fly from and TG Aviation are a superb outfit. The quality of training is excellent, and the ongoing mentoring and support is First Class. I would recommend TG Aviation to anybody who wants to learn to fly, or as a base for any pilots looking for a friendly and professional organisation.

    Started training with TG in 1987 and gained my PPL in 1988,great atmosphere and not like a school as such as we all felt like extended family,the instructors I flew with ended up being good friends (Many a good night out if you could keep up).I let my licence lapse for a good few years and went back to revalidate it,different instructors but same atmosphere and with 2 of the original c152’s so it was like coming home.
    In the photo are G-BGAB the first plane I ever learnt in and G-BHHG the one I done my revalidation in.All in all a great place to learn and have fun plus mixing it with the Heavys that are in and out of Manston on a regular basis.

    I undertook my PPL / Night / IMC training at TG Aviation. The instructor and training was excellent and I passed in minimum times. A good size fleet so rarely was there unavailability of aircraft. For flight training i’d highly recommend.

    My sons bought me an hours flight / training for a present for Fathers Day. It was brilliant and they came up in the back of the plane and it was the best ever. Bob the Pilot was excellent and I was able to take the controls for take off and flew over Canterbury Dover, Folkestone etc and Bob was a wealth of knowledge of the East Kent Coast – pointing out landmarks. Cannot recommend it enough and the whole experience, including ground staff was incredible and worth whatever it cost. Photos galore but on my son’s phone!
    Do it!

    It is great to learn at a big airport with full Air Traffic Control. Learning at Manston means you will not have any fear of visiting any airport in the UK or Europe. It’s location means cross channel flights are undertaken very early in you flying career with all the great times that go with that.
    Top notch instructors too.

    I had a 20min trial flight and I very enjoyed! I was allowed to fly the plane for a little while performing simple manoeuvrings. The staff and pilot were really friendly and I definitely recommend it!

    A pal of mine who is training for his PPL at TG Aviation treated me to a trial lesson at TG Aviation. It turned out to be truly fantastic and wonderful experience that I will never forget!There were three of us ancient ex Air Cadets who used to train at RAF Manston in the 1960’s, plus the instructor and it was my first time flying a 4 seater under his expert supervision. TG Aviation are a friendly professional firm whose phone I will be soon ringing to book another flight! Have fun!

    Welcoming staff, superb Instructors and most importantly, excellent training. As a Flying Club as well as a Flying School, it’s a home from home for many Pilots, Students and enthusiasts alike. TG Aviation has a variety of aircraft, helpful, passionate members, staff and engineers… and not to forget lovely Tea. All this on top of the excellent facilities and professionalism provided by and Manston Airport as a commercial operative makes Manston, and therefore TG, a unique and brilliant training ground for all newcomers and even you experienced chaps. Especially if you are interested in the aspects commercial flying. I recommend TG to any dreamer, student and even current license holder.

    I trained and acquired my PPL and Night rating with TGA in 2003. I chose TGA because of its fleet of well-maintained aircraft. They are a very professional organisation and would recommend them for all your flying training and aircraft hire.

    I did my PPL, IMC and Night training with TG Aviation in the late 90s and early 2000s, as well as around 100 hours in their aircraft on non-training (fun!) flights. Sadly I haven’t been able to fly in the last few years due to the pressures of a young family but I would recommend TG to anyone thinking about flying, whether for a trial flight or for more serious training – they have a small, family-business feel but with complete professionalism. A bonus of training at Manston is that you’ll never have the fear of big airfields and ATC that some pilots develop when they train at smaller airfields.
