Who We Are

Ampsair is a well established business at Peterborough Conington Airport offering flying training, ground school, flying instructor courses and a private hire group. And if you’re looking for a novel Christmas or birthday present, we sell our own Trial Flight Gift Vouchers too.

It is run by Gareth Aggett who has flown 10,000 hours and holds an Airline Transport Pilots Licence, is an instructor and examiner on light aircraft and microlights and is authorised by the CAA to train pilots to be instructors on microlight aircraft. Having been the manager of three general aviation airfields and several flying clubs he has an extensive knowledge of airfield business and safety procedures.

What We Offer

We run bespoke, tailored training courses integrating flying training with ground school. If you prefer we will take you for flying training only or ground school for the theory subjects only. Our in house examiner will conduct your flight tests and exams for the ground subjects.

The Training Courses

The National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL) with Microlight Rating

This entitles you to fly microlight aircraft as pilot in command and with a passenger.

The Training Courses

Ground School

This prepares you to pass the five ground exams for the NPPL and another for the radio licence. You can take as much or as little classroom tuition as you like alongside home study.
