YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 4 hours, with approx. 85 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.)
Many pilots, whether amateur or professional, often agree that the favourite part of their flying is, 'the landings'. An oft-heard flying instructors' adage is: "Anybody can fly an aeroplane, but it takes a pilot to land one".
All 'trial lessons' involve at least one landing, but we also offer a special 'land away' experience - ie two landings as part of the same experience.
Typically, your trial lesson flight will commence with a pre-flight briefing, and once airborne (from our base) you will fly along the Severn Estuary, and the coast towards the Gower, or over the Brecon Beacons - seeing the Magnificent Severn Bridges on your return. Following a quick view around the peninsular, we will land, usually at Swansea airfield, alternatives are Shobdon or Kemble.
After refreshments, return to the base where you will learn about the aircraft and auxiliary systems. The experience will take approximately 3 to 4 hours including ground briefings. Once we are fully airborne from the runway YOU will be in control!
This package is a fantastic pilot experience for two people! The first student pilot takes approximately 35 minutes at the controls, flying the two of you to a local airfield under the guidance of your flight instructor. Take time out at the airfield for a tea or coffee, then swap around and the second student pilot take the controls for the return leg.
Also suitable for one person who wishes to fly both ways for a total of at least 75 minutes flight time.
A land away experience can also be a revelation for anyone thinking of taking their pilots licence. In terms of the ease of covering distance, even our 125 mph touring & training aircraft can achieve a trip between airports in 30 minutes, which if attempted by road could take hours.
