After a warm welcome from your instructor and a short preflight briefing and walk around the aircraft you will be strapped in to your seat and await clearance to taxi from the tower (ATC). You can listen in to the big boys on your headset while you are waiting!
During the preflight briefing you will get chance to discuss your first flight which will be to either Cumbernauld or Prestwick. Whichever direction you fly you will enjoy some stunning scenery.
After an introduction to the basic elements of flying and effect of controls of the aircraft you will go through some of the early exercises of the PPL syllabus including straight and level flight; altitude control and learning to climb.
The first flight will be about 50 minutes after which time you will land at your chosen airfield.
This will give you a chance to talk over the flight with your instructor and for him to answer any questions that you may have. On the return flight - a further 50 minutes - you will have plenty of time to put your newly learned skills into practice.
At the end of your lesson your instructor will take back the controls for the landing back at Glasgow airport.
On your return to the airfield you will get chance to discuss your flight and future lessons with your instructor over a cup of tea/coffee.
Don't forget your log book as this time can count towards your Private pilot's Licence.
We have our own facilities at Glasgow Airport with free parking. Refreshments available (tea;coffee;biscuits)and friends and family will be able to watch from our viewing area.
