Our History

Liverpool Flying School has been based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport since the swinging sixties. The school grew out of Liverpool Aero Club which was formed by Jim Keen in 1963, its first aeroplane being the then brand new Piper Colt.

During the last 60 years the family business has become a cornerstone of general aviation in Liverpool. Liverpool Flying School has trained thousands of pilots to fly for business and pleasure, some going on to fly for commercial airlines.

50 Years of Liverpool Flying School

"For 50 years the aircraft and activities of Liverpool Aero Club, Keenair Services, Keenair Ltd, Liverpool Flying School, Keenair Charter and the company owners Jim and later Martin, Kath and Janet Keen have provided a great deal of interest for the enthusiast. Their family business, established in 1963, has become a cornerstone of general aviation at Liverpool and remains so today."
