What We Offer
Here at The Flight School we offer four main services, we invite you to explore them all until you find the best course to meet your needs.
Designed for the pet parrot owner, or prospective pet parrot owner, who would like a more rewarding and fulfilling relationship with their bird. This two-day Workshop will give the attendees the basic methods and tools required to teach their birds using positive reinforcement. Topics covered in this workshop include:
The course will consist of lectures, practical sessions, interactive activities, written materials and live presentations. The workshops aim to be both a fun and educational experience.
The two-day workshops are charged at £200 for World Parrot Trust members, or £220 for non-members. This included admission to Paradise Park for both days at the weekend, all course materials, morning and afternoon tea/coffee breaks, and a lunch cooked to order from Paradise Parks restaurant.
Please note that attendees may not bring their own birds to the workshop for welfare reasons, although videos/dvds of problem behaviours will be welcomed.
We aim to run two courses a year, the dates of which, along with information on booking and local accomodation, can be found in the Upcoming Courses section, here.
Bespoke training days can be arranged to include topics from the two day workshops and the following additional topics:
+ The catching, handling and restraint of birds
We will bring the workshop to you. No birds of course, unless the host facility has birds available. Workshop format can be tailored to your requirements covering one or two days, with a typical one day session lasting between six and eight hours. This can be a good fund raising event for the host facility!

Consultancy is available in the following areas:
+ In house help and advice with “problem” birds
If you would like any further information, or to consult with us about your own problem, then please use the Contact Us link on the left hand menu.
We have been involved in numerous filming sessions with birds and animals. All the birds are fully winged and all are trained using positive reinforcement.
Although many of our animals travel extremely well, we will not hesitate to turn down an offer if we feel that the animal or bird's welfare would be compromised. We always prefer to accommodate film crews on our site which makes the birds much more relaxed and gives the film crews unsurpassed filming opportunities.
