The new flying school which recently opened here October 2018 has plenty to offer, delivered by passionate and professional instructors lead by Stephen Evans who is extremely dedicated and knowledgeable. If you wish to learn how to fly Stephen's teaching technique is one that truly works, he commits his time and makes every effort to help.
The facilities will not disappoint, the school is equipped with the latest learning materials and technology including a flight simulator, the training aircrafts are in pristine condition with fantastic visibility, the airfield layout enhances your learning experience as everything is on a larger scale!
Highly recommend Fly Snowdonia www.flysnowdonia.com it’s well worth the visit for flight training, pleasure flights or simply to enjoy the breathtaking scenery that Llanbedr has to offer.
The Cafe is known to have a good reputation offering decent size portions good value for money and a friendly and pleasant atmosphere.

As I entered the door on my first visit to Llanbedr Flight School ( www.flysnowdonia.com ) I was highly impressed by the professional layout of the flight school with many educational posters and whiteboards on view. Stephen Evans greeted me with a cup of coffee and he described the many benefits, for someone wishing to learn to fly, at Snowdonia Flight School.
The school not only provides excellent flying lessons with knowledgeable and experienced pilots in the most beautiful part of Wales, but the classroom setting and books along with invaluable tutoring provides an all round package for a future pilot.
Stephen Evans runs a friendly, knowledgeable and ideal place to learn to fly and I would strongly recommend Fly Snowdonia.

Snowdonia Flight School came into operation in October 2018, unfortunately the previous owner of FlyLlanbedr is refusing to remove his website stating Llanbedr flight school is closed and Llanbedr is closed for GA.
To avoid any confusion, Llanbedr is open for GA and there is a new flight school in operation. Please consult website: www.flysnowdonia.com. The school offers ground school, PPL and LAPL training at one of the most picturesque flying regions you ever see. The school also has a state of the art simulator, furthermore the airfield is very GA friendly with a great cafe and is going through a significant refurbishment and is receiving strong levels of investment. Please visit.
The airfield offers 3 of the flattest runways you will ever see and they are in excellent conditions, it’s a crime not to make use of this hidden gem.

Llanbedr is a fantastic airfield with a great new flying school called Snowdonia Flight School based there. Visit flysnowdonia.com and find out how to learn to fly or just take in the breathtaking scenery by booking one of the several planes based there for a pleasure flight.
There is also the Jindivick Cafe which is open seven days a week offering great value food and drinks.

I had never been to Llanbedr until 2018. I have now lost count of the number of times I’ve been there in one year.
The approach is exciting. The runways are vast. The scenery is breathtaking.
The place has been desolate, but is slowly growing. Joyfully, there is self service 100LL in the NE corner of the airport, near the giant hangars. The friendly café is accessed via a portakabin which straddles the security gate. The new flying school http://www.flysnowdonia.com is a welcome addition to the airport.
Highly recommended: The Spitfire burger in Ellie’s ‘Jindvik’ Café named after the dramatic-looking drone aircraft.

A great destination with immaculate runways and beautiful scenery. A short break here should make for a very enjoyable few days (in good weather!).
Strong easterly winds could make approaches tricky because of the hills to the east.
Sadly, the FTO very recently moved out and weekend and Bank Holiday PPR has been withdrawn 'until further notice' but it is still possible to fly in during the week.

Pic from a couple of years ago, but what a facility going to waste.
