Due to the COVID-19 pandemic DSFT, like many other businesses, have introduced a raft of measures in line with government COVID Secure guidelines and industry-specific guidance to keep our staff and customers safe.
Unfortunately the measures introduced do restrict our capacity due to the extra time taken on cleaning and keeping customers socially distanced from each other. This also restricts what we can and cannot do for the time being due to the equipment required by each student. For your specific situation, read the relevant section below.
We are currently unable to offer flying experiences but we will have this side of the business up and running as soon as we can.
When we resume trial lessons, we will be limiting the number of people in the four seat Piper Warrior aircraft to three (including the instructor).
All occupants on trial lessons must wear a face covering at all times inside our aircraft.
You will need to provide your own high visibility jacket(s), face covering(s), and headset(s). To maintain adequate social distancing inside the school office, only the aircraft hirer will be permitted in the office, any passengers must wait outside.
You will need to provide your own high visibility jacket, face covering, and headset so nobody has any form of contact with people outside of their household. Unfortunately, to maintain adequate social distancing, no friends or family will be allowed inside the school office.
On The Day

- You or anyone within you household have any symptoms of COVID-19
