These Terms and Conditions apply to all  flight vouchers bought or placed by, or on behalf of, our clients. By purchasing a Voucher with the Company, you agree on behalf of yourself, or the person for whom the Flight is intended, to be bound by them in their entirety.

Gift Vouchers:
Booking and cancellations:
Flights must be booked within 6 months date of purchase and flown within 12 months from the date of purchase. The date of purchase is clearly marked on the voucher and an extension may be available on payment of an administration charge. A refund may be requested in writing/email to ops@wlac.co.uk within the 6 month booking period but may also be subject to an administration charge. The voucher can be transferred to another name, exchanged towards a different experience & any price difference paid,  or the validity date can be extended in certain circumstances or upon payment of an administration fee. The owner of the voucher may rebook the flight and discuss the situation with us.  Any enquiries regarding refunds should be made in writing by the original purchaser.

Any cancelled flights should be rebooked for a date within the original voucher validity period. Should suitable flight dates not be available, cancelled flight vouchers will be extended free of charge for up to a period of 4 months.

Once you have booked the date of your flight, at least 3 days’ notice is required if you wish to make any amendments to the date or time. If the booking is changed by you after that time you may forfeit the voucher. Under certain circumstances the flight can be re-booked upon a payment of a rebooking fee which is 50% of the original flight cost. A ‘no show’ on the day of the booking will result in the voucher becoming invalid.
Please remember to bring the voucher with you on the day of the flight.

We reserve the right to postpone a flight previously booked and to offer an alternative booking. This is likely to be due to weather or technical reasons. Please note that we cannot guarantee to offer a weekend booking or guarantee that the flight will take place on a specific date or time.

Flights depart from White Waltham Airfield and the Flight Voucher provides temporary membership of West London Aero Club and up to 3 guests on the day of your flight.

Flight Conditions:
All flights are subject to suitable weather conditions, aircraft serviceability and instructor availability. The Company accepts no responsibility for bad weather, unforeseen mechanical problems or unforeseen events causing the contracted flight to be cancelled or altered from that contracted for.
The Company cannot be held liable for any costs incurred in this circumstance. Any delays or cancellations will be advised to the customer by text message, email or telephone, so please ensure your contact details are correct and up to date.

If the flight is cancelled for whatever reason, it is your responsibility to re-book your flight with the Company. If you fail to do this by the required dates, we reserve the right to void the voucher.  Where possible passengers should rebook any cancelled flights within the original validity period of the voucher.

All flight times are “chocks-off” to “chocks-on” (aircraft brakes off to brakes on)

Any passenger suffering from the effects of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to fly.
