Established Yorkshire flight training company Hields Aviation has opened a new fixed wing and helicopter flight training facility here on the Multiflight site at Leeds Bradford Airport.

The new flight training facility opened its doors this week, next door to the Multiflight Café.

Hields Aviation, which was established by Robert Hields in 1989, has a base at Sherburn in Elmet Airfield providing helicopter flight training, helicopter charter brokerage and helicopter pleasure flying. The new Leeds facility will offer helicopter and fixed wing flight training.

Arriving soon at the Leeds facility will be a brand new Bell 505 helicopter and fixed wing training will be given on two Cessna 172 Skyhawk’s.

“We are delighted to open a new flight training base at Multiflight at Leeds Bradford Airport and are looking forward to offering the same high standards as at our Sherburn in Elmet Airfield base,” said Robert.

“We have had a tremendous amount of interest in our new Leeds base and are really excited to get started here.”

Steve Borrowdale, Managing Director of Multiflight, said: “We are delighted to welcome Hields Aviation to the Multiflight site and wish Robert and his team all the best with the new flight training facility.”
