About Crawley

Pilot training is so much more than just the aircraft you train in and those who instruct you. It’s the whole experience; the life-long friendships you make and the place you call home for the duration of your training.

Crawley is one the biggest towns in Sussex, perfectly placed between Brighton and London. Whilst you have a whole host of things to do on your doorsteps in Crawley including plenty of places to eat and drink, the vibrant Brighton is only 35 minutes away where you have both the coastline and lively nightlife to enjoy. Similarly, London is easily accessible in an hour by train where you can experience the hustle and bustle of city life.


Places to visit

There are plenty of places to visit in the surrounding areas of Crawley including historic houses, gardens, galleries, castles, theme parks, museums, theatres, aquariums, amusements, indoor play centres, leisure centres, and waterparks. When looking for somewhere to eat and drink there's plenty to choose from in either Crawley itself, or the neighboring towns such as Croydon, Bromley, Leatherhead, Sevenoaks, and Tonbridge. Not forgetting, London and Brighton are only a short train ride away.
