Introductory Flying Lesson -Become the captain of an aircraft in just 30/45 or 60 minutes with tuition from a CAA qualified instructor. Take to the skies for your first taste of real flight. A 45 minute introductory lesson is probably the best way to experience the enjoyment and privileges of private flying. This is sure to be the start of a life long desire to be amongst the clouds free as a bird.
PLUS with four seats you can take a family member or friend along as a passenger to witness the event.
After meeting your fully qualified flying instructor you will receive a briefing on how an aircraft flies and importantly how to fly it. After the briefing it’s off to the dual controlled aircraft for your flying lesson. You will sit in the left hand seat, the captain’s seat, while your instructor straps in next to you. In no time at all you are cleared for take off. Your instructor will take the aircraft off, then its over to you to try your hand at climbs, turns and descents. Don’t forget to look out of the windows and capture the fantastic views as you cruise along. After flying back to the airfield the instructor will set the aircraft up for its approach to land and smoothly touch down, taxiing back to the parking area you will reflect and think – WOW!
This flying experience can be taken all year round subject to weather and availability.
