Light aircraft trial lesson
If you've always wanted to experience the thrill of being a pilot, a Trial Lesson is the first step to living the dream. A Trial Lesson also makes the ideal gift, or a unique way of saying thank you to someone special.

This experience will last a total of approx. 1 hour, with approx. 30 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.)

What's included

What better way to see the fantastic sight of Bristol and the beautiful countryside for miles around.

Your trial lesson begins with a briefing where your instructor will explain how the controls and instruments work and what to expect during your flight. Once in the air you'll be guided through doing as much of the flying as possible yourself. After landing, we will answer any questions you may have whilst you relax in our licensed Cafe and Bar.
If you do decide to learn to fly this lesson will count towards your pilot's license. If not, you will have had an experience you'll never forget.
Bring along your family and friends and don't forget your camera. With a great view of the runway at this busy international airport the flying club is open to all and has plenty of free parking.

Special Conditions

Provided you are reasonably fit and healthy there should be no problem, but do please contact us if you have any concerns. Whilst we will make every effort to ensure that your trial flight goes ahead as planned, changes may be necessary due to operational issues or inclement weather.

professional and friendly

(Reviewed 23/08/2015)

Easy making booking, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the directions were easy to follow. The instructor was a little late, but we didnt mind waiting, in cafe. The instructor was professional and friendly and went out of his way to make the experience enjoyable. I had to ask for a certificate and my partner's name was spelt incorrectly so requested another.

A very good flying experience

(Reviewed 22/01/2016)

Sorting the date was Easy, as the operator was very helpful & comforting to speak to. It was a very good venue, pretty easy to find. All of the staff were extremely nice & helpful. The flying instructor was brilliant, very accommodating & helpful, a sheer delight. The briefing was brief & informative, left us plenty of time for flying. Very good use of time. The experience was amazing! Did plenty of flying and even helped with the take-off. They even let my partner sit in the back. Very impressed! The instructor let my partner take photos while I was flying & then he offered to take some photos of us in-front of the plane once we had landed.

Piper fun

(Reviewed by Stan M 23/06/2014)

Aranging the flight was straightforward...the facilities were pleasant and we enjoyed an after-flight drink in the clubhouse...helpful and knowledgeable, especially our flying instructor. I was given a clear briefing in a relaxed and friendly way. It was definitely a thrilling experience. Although I had several hours training on microlights, this took my flying experience a big step further. I would definitely recommend the experience to friends. We were given time to take photos after the flight and then had time to chat about flying in the clubhouse.

Overall rating: Excellent

Flying high!

(Reviewed by Andrena Williams 22/01/2016)

Brilliant, no problem whatsoever with booking the flight. The 1st flight was cancelled due to low cloud, but re-arranged with no problem. Very helpful staff. We Knew our way to Bristol Airport and the directions given were simple, cafe was excellent, giving good value for what was on offer to eat. The Staff were extremely helpful, I wasn't rushed at all. The equipment was good. The Briefing was very good, in simple layman terms, not too technical and with easy to follow instructions. It was the most thrilling experience I have ever had. Didn't feel nervous only very excited!! It was on my "bucket list" so wouldn't do it again, but highly recommend to all my friends for a once in a life-time experience!!! I did manage to take some fantastic photos from the air of the Severn Bridge and Clifton Suspension Bridge, also the pilot flew over the Airbus site (where I work). After we landed he got my husband to come out and take some photos of me in the cockpit and alongside the plane.

Overall rating: Excellent
