Welcome to Snowdonia Flight School
The Snowdonia Flight School is located at Llanbedr Airfield which is situated on the North Wales coast in Llanbedr near Harlech. The airfield opened in 1941 as part of the RAF Fighter Command’s 12 Group. It has a fascinating RAF and wartime history. During the Second World War, RAF Llanbedr was home to thirty-two different RAF Squadrons on rotation which flew a variety of aircraft (Spitfire, Mustang, Typhoon, Anson, Lysander and Martinet). The airfield also served as a Royal Air Force V bomber dispersal airfield and, more recently, used for military weapons training. The site closed in October 2004, but re-opened in May 2014, catering for the needs of the general aviation community in the area. It is great flying country, free from controlled airspace, with excellent facilities including fuel and food stops with stunning views of the wonderful Welsh countryside and coastline. Come and visit us by road or air, we have ample car and visiting aircraft parking space and enjoy a very warm welcome, with lots to see.
The Jindivik café is open 7 days a week, serves a great selection of homemade food, from the traditional pilots’ all day breakfast to roast meals. From the Jindivik café upstairs seating area, you get an impressive view of the runways and aircraft of all description taking off and landing.
On holiday in the area? We are located next to Shell Island which offers a caravan and camp site and much more. There are many other great camping facilities nearby and its a dream area for aviation enthusiasts! If you fancy taking to the skies, book an experience flight to see the wonderful North Wales scenery, including the Llyn Peninsula or the Snowdon mountain range in our aircraft.
We offer flight training packages to suit every budding Private Pilot; this can vary from intensive courses, or learn at a more leisurely pace to fit around your work commitments with our professional instructors. Browse the website, it’s full of useful information! Then come over to see us for cup of tea and a chance to gather further information.
