A BUSINESS, founded by Upper Wharfedale entrepreneur David Hood, could lift career prospects in the aviation industry.

Multiflight Flight Training Centre, at Leeds Bradford Airport, is introducing seven-days-a-week commercial flight training with experienced instructors, from Monday, March 2.

All levels of flight training and renewal of flight training will be available.

“Training for a professional pilot’s licence is a serious undertaking and requires financial, mental and time commitment,” said Arncliffe man Mike McKenzie, Multiflight’s flight training centre manager.

“Multiflight recognises that many people balance work and personal commitments with their flight training; continuing to work to finance it and, consequently, it is important that training is available seven days a week.”

Multiflight is a leading flight training establishment offering flight training from Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) through to Commercial Pilot’s Licence (CPL), in both aeroplanes and helicopters.

Multiflight has an impressive fleet of flight training aircraft, including Cessna 152s, PA 28s, Beech Duchess twin-engine aircraft, Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters and a Guimbal Cabri G2 helicopter will join the fleet from Saturday, March 7.

Multiflight also has a mechtronix FNPT II simulator, simulating either a BE76 Duchess or BE20 King Air. It is used for all IR and Multi Crew Co-operation (MCC) courses.
