Product review: Stunning Coastline by , 26 Sep 17 5/5 Excellent "Very easy (to arrange) by phone! Didn't have to rearrange date. Very easy to find but thats because we are from the area, but cant see it being difficult if you're not. Facilities a bit basic but it's a plane hanger!! Staff were very good and very informative. Equipment good. Felt very confident after the brefing. Staff had a fab sense of humour and made you feel at ease and relaxed about the experience.

(Experience) very thrilling, in fact 'Mind Blowing'. Didn't realise Blackpool coastline is so beautiful. Definately would do it again, just wish we could be up there longer! Took loads of photo's on the ground and in the air, took some video also, but some didn't come out preoperly because enjoying the views too much, with my own eyes.

I booked the experience through the (experiences4all) website, but also rang. Very helpful and even sent a gift voucher to present as a pressent! All Excellent experience. "

Light aircraft trial lesson
20 minute flying lesson in a 4-seater
A twenty minute flying lesson in a 4-seater light aircraft! You will be able to take the controls yourself, and take along a friend (or maybe two) to enjoy the ride!

This experience will last a total of approx. 40 minutes, with approx. 20 minutes spent in the air. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)

Wanting more than one voucher? It's a pain unless you call 0208 133 9327 - I can do all the work AND give you a discount!! (Please note: your product code is 35377).


What's included

A twenty-minute flying lesson makes a great gift for any thrill-seeker!

First, you will meet your instructor, who will show you the controls of the aircraft and what they do; then it's time to get strapped in and take off on your maiden flight! You will be offered as much time on the controls as you feel happy with, and your instructor feels you can handle; and when you return to earth, your first thought will be, 'when can I do that again!'

As this is a flight in a four-seater aircraft, you will be able to take a friend or two (depending on weight) along on the back seat, to take photographs and ensure your expertise is properly recognised!

This flight can count towards the hours required for gaining your licence.


Special Conditions

Blackpool Formby Flight

(Reviewed by S R Cooper 28/09/2015)

Very Straight forward. Very easy the airport is well signposted. The instructor was excellent. He inspired confidence which, in turn, led to higher competence and the aircraft was well maintained. Since I had flown before a detailed briefing was unnecessary. Exhilarating and enjoyable I have decided to repeat the experience in the future and would recommend it to anyone. We took a photo of myself and the instructor standing by the plane. I did not order the flight it was presented to me as a xmas present. and very acceptable too!

Overall rating: Excellent
