The current position with regard to Flight Vouchers and Courses is this:

Trial Lessons already booked are now cancelled. We've endeavored to contact voucher holders. If you've not been contacted please accept our apologies. 
Vouchers for Trial Lessons and Air Experience Flights will have their expiry dates extended by 12 months.
Training Courses are under review depending on when they are scheduled for, and attendees will be contacted as required. The ones planned through to June have been cancelled!
We will not be able to take new voucher bookings until further notice. When we are up and running again we will have a significant backlog.
We look forward to meeting and flying you as soon as it is practicable and such difficult times are behind us!
