YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 30 minutes. (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.)
You and a friend will be welcomed to the flying school by a member of staff who will introduce you to your CAA Qualified Flying Instructor.
Your trial flying lesson begins with a pre-flight briefing explaining the effect of controls and the route you will be taking. Subject to Air Traffic Restrictions we may be able to fly over your house. There is also the chance to fly down the River Mersey, enjoying the sights of the Historic Waterfront buildings, see your favourite Football grounds (Liverpool or Everton) from the air or fly along the North Wales and Wirral Coastline, taking in the beautiful scenery. Don't forget your camera!
You will spend 30 minutes in the aircraft including taxiing, take off, straight and level flight and the landing. Once in the air and, under the supervision of your instructor, you will take control of the aircraft and fly the plane yourself! Your friend will be in the rear seat of the aircraft, where they can take photographs of you flying the plane and any places of interest we might fly over.
Family and friends are welcome to watch you take off and land - we have an outside picnic area which has great views of the runway. Light refreshments are available and free of charge.
Once you have landed you will be presented with a Certificate of Achievement and, should you decide that this is the hobby for you, the time you have flown on your Trial Flight will count towards the hours needed to gain your Private Pilot's Licence.

Arranging the date was very easy as the people on the phone at the flying school were very helpful and gave us all the dates available. When I went to this flying school we got a bit lost on the way there because you think it would be called "Flights4all" but it is not! All the facilities were very good and everything was very well organised. The staff were very helpful and the equipment was good. The briefing was very informative and reassuring. The flying experience was very good with a good route to fly down and also a lot of good scenery. I would recommend this to any people who are over the age of 12, to go with an adult, but when you are 16 or over, you can go solo. When I was in the captains seat my dad was sat behind me and he said to me when we had landed that he was very proud of me, well, I am only 13 so he thought that I would mess it up, but boy was he wrong!
Overall rating: Excellent
My dad booked all this for me on my 13th birthday so I have no idea how easy it all was to arrange but I guess it would have been easy. My dad got us lost on the way to the venue and we ended up at the other side of the airfield. However in the end we found out where we needed to go, we were about 10 seconds late! All the staff were pleasant and kind, especially the instructor. When I first saw the Cessna 172 that I would be flying, I was mesmerised by the size of the aircraft and that I would be the captain! The pre-flight safety briefing was very informative and helpful for the flight. The instructor was able to answer all my questions. The whole experience was excellent ***** stars, however be warned, half an hour and even an hour will go really fast whilst you are the captain of a Cessna! There was opportunity to take photographs before and after the flight but sadly my camera went dead before the takeoff because at home I was so excited I forgot to change the batteries, I had just been to Manchester Airport the day before, that is why they went dead.
Overall rating: Excellent
