Flying school to leave Great Oakley
10:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
A FLYING school has been grounded just two years after taking off.
Skyward Flight Training will be leaving Great Oakley Airfield after failing to agree new terms for the 2014 flying season.
However the company hopes to find a new home in time for the start of the season.
Director Chris Shepherd- Rose said: “We would like to congratulate the 11 students that have gained their Private Pilots Licence since the school started training in 2011.
“We have flown over 200 students from ages 12 years to 90 years mostly living in the Oakley Harwich, Dovercourt and Manningtree areas.”
The school will leave the airfield on September 30.
