30 Minute Flying Lesson

Always dreamed of flying?

Reach for the sky with this introductory flying lesson and soar away into the wide blue yonder. Under expert tuition you will be able to take the controls and discover the freedom of flying, with the aircraft responding to your lightest touch. You won't need to worry about landing, as this is carried out by the pilot. This is the perfect gift for those who love to be airborne.

Your 30 minute flying lesson begins with a pre-flight briefing with your instructor, where you will learn the effects of an aircraft's controls and what you will be doing during this trial flying lesson. Then it's time to walk out to the aircraft where you will be taken on a 'walk round' to see the main control surfaces. Your instructor will take off and then demonstrate some basic manoeuvres, before passing the controls over to you. Your 30 minute lesson includes take-off and landing times.
