  • Description

    Feel the adrenaline rush as you take the controls of a light aircraft and soar across the sky above the English countryside while learning what its like to actually pilot a plane with this 30 Minute Flying Lesson for one.

    At your chosen location youLl receive one-to-one tuition from a Civil Aviation Authority-licensed instructor, meaning youll have expert guidance in getting to grips with the controls during every moment in the air. Youll have unbeatable views across the surrounding area, but we dont blame you if you want to stay focussed on the world ahead of your windscreen as youre thousands of feet above the ground!

    What youll learn will depend on your chosen location, but all of your flying time will still count towards a Private Pilots Licence should you be a budding flying hobbyist and planning to take to the skies again. Exhilarating, awe-inspiring and breath-taking all at once, this is an experience youll want to try again as soon as its over!

    What's Included?

    • Introduction to flying, aircraft controls and safety
    • One-to-one training from a CAA licensed instructor
    • 30 minutes flying time with the opportunity to take the controls
    • Experience gift pack
    • Cancellation indemnity

    What happens on the day?

    Your flying lesson starts with a pre-flight briefing from your qualified instructor. This will cover safety, and an introduction to some of the controls.

    Once in the plane, you are given headphones so that you can hear conversations between your instructor and air traffic control. You will also be able to communicate with each other so you can be guided through your first lesson. Once in the air, you will be able to take the controls but your pilot will take over to land the plane at the airfield and taxi back.
