On-Track Aviation Limited

On-Track Aviation Limited was formed in 1997 by Alan Newton and Mark Young and operated within an already established flying school in Oxfordshire. The training courses were aimed at the PPL(A) initially but a decision was taken in 2001 to specialise in training for professional pilot qualifications only. Instructor Training including Instructor Refresher Seminars were the first specialist area of professional training the company pursued gaining Approval in July 2001.

On-Track Aviation was the first Approved Training Organisation (ATO) specialising in Part Time Instructor Courses. In addition On-Track Aviation is unique in the UK as it is the only ATO offering Seaplane Instructor Courses on single engine aeroplanes as well as training and testing for the SEP (Sea) Class Rating and the Seamanship Examination.

On-Track has developed its own comprehensive instructor guide entitled Instructor Manual (EASA edition). As the name suggests it covers a variety of EASA courses from the LAPL(A) to multi-engine and more. This is the second training book published by On-Track following on from the successful Instructional Techniques for the Flight Instructor. It has been comprehensively re-written to reflect the EASA courses and the latest industry techniques and ideas..

On-Track's expertise as an instructor training organisation has been recognised by the CAA as members of the staff have been involved in Flight Instructor Course (FIC) Instructor training and testing.

As a corporate member of AOPA (UK) On-Track Aviation is able to train and test for the AOPA(UK) Ground Instructor Course which is aimed at anyone who wishes to teach the PPL theoretical knowledge subjects. As a lot of our staff have many years of teaching aerobatics, and have been involved in military display flying, we can also offer training and testing for the AOPA(UK) Aerobatic Certificates, EASA Aerobatic Rating as well as the Removal of the Aerobatic Instruction Restriction from your instructor rating. We can also offer ground tuition for the AOPA(UK) Navigation Certificate Course. This course is designed to encourage pilots who hold either a PPL(A), LAPL(A) or UK NPPL(A) to obtain formal training in radio navigation procedures for use under Visual Flight Rules in accordance with the privileges of their licences.

Besides instructor training On-Track Aviation can offer Flight Instructor Examiner (FIE), Class Rating Examiner (CRE) and Flight Examiner (FE) training and testing on both single and multi-engine aeroplanes including single engine seaplanes. In 2013 we added Examiner Refresher Seminars and our latest addition Senior Examiner Seminars - Single Pilot Aeroplanes which were approved in 2016. On-Track is also a training and test centre for the UK FRTOL (Flight Radiotelephony Operators Licence).

Besides the many courses on offer we also provide examiners for UK NPPL(A), PPL(A), CPL(A), Class and Instrument Ratings and the IMC Rating / IR(Restricted). We can also offer FAA checks including the BFR and IPC. To book simply call the office or drop us an email.

On-Track Aviation has developed into a well respected EASA Approved Training Organisation (ATO) and has a reputation amongst students for first class training with an above average first time pass rate. Indeed, all the students who have graduated from On-Track Aviation courses have quickly gained positions as either flight instructors or pilots within the airline industry. We have regular contact with many flying schools and clubs throughout the UK who enquire about our instructor graduates.

The headquarters is at Wellesbourne Mountford Aerodrome in Warwickshire, UK and our aircraft are all leased from a variety of organisations and individuals and consist of Cessna 152/172s, PA28/34/44s, T67 Firefly, Robin 2160/200, Beech 76 and a Cessna 172 Amphibian. With such a wide choice of aeroplanes we are sure to have one that you are familiar with thus making your chosen course a lot simpler.

The On-Track Aviation Team, who are a mixture of full and part time personnel, include both Flight Instructors and Examiners. Many of the staff come from a military background, others from within the airlines (Air Southwest, Cathay Pacific, Flybe, British Airways) and some have worked for the CAA. The instructors, in addition to having many years of instructing and examining experience, are therefore able to offer you first hand information on many aspects of a professional pilot career.
