What's included

Txt me the key details of this experience

Not for the fainthearted - This is a serious introduction to the world of aerobatics.
On arrival you will meet your fully qualified instructor first, for a full flight safety briefing.
Your instructor will walk out to the light aircraft with you and you will then climb aboard the Slingsby Firefly, a nimble aircraft still used today for the primary flight training of the UK armed forces.
Don't forget to listen in on the headset while you await clearance from the tower to taxi.
Once at a safe altitude you will enjoy some serious aerial antics with an aerobatics experience in Durham!
The distinctive 'bubble' canopy of the Firefly gives you excellent all round vision, so you can see below and even behind you as the pilot performs an aerobatics routine high above the Durham sky.
In the air, the instructor pushes the aircraft to its limits, completing a series of impressive aerial manoeuvres, including loops and barrel rolls.
You will get chance to take over the aircraft's controls yourself during the flight in order to experience the true thrill of piloting a plane.
Too soon it will be time to hand back the controls and return to base. After the flight there will be chance to discuss any outstanding questions with your instructor.
Tea/coffee and biscuits provided in a heated seated area in the building.
Signed certificate on completion. You will also recieve an information pack on Learning to Fly.
Spectators welcome and may take photographs. They are unable to go airside but can observe from our side of the security fence.
The person having the flying experience may take a camera/phone into the aircraft to take photographs of the experience.
Please arrive 15 minutes before allocated time.
