YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 60 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 60 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 but please restrict this to a maximum of 4 people. We have an outside picnic area which has great views of the runway.
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.
