YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 90 minutes, with approx. 1 hour 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.)
This is an ideal one-off flight or first lesson for someone thinking about learning to fly - a real introduction to the world of light aviation.
On arrival you will be warmly welcomed by your instructor and you will receive a short pre-flight (safety) briefing during which you can discuss the route you wish to fly.
Obviously being a large airport there is some restricted airspace which need to be considered but outside this the choice is yours.
Your instructor will walk you to the light aircraft and once you are safely strapped in you will be listening in on the headset and awaiting clearance from the tower to taxi.
Once at a safe altitude the briefing will continue and you will be shown the basic principles of flight and how the controls work. You will then have the opportunity to take the controls and fly the aircraft.
Too soon it will be time to hand back the controls and return to base. After the flight there will be chance to discuss any outstanding questions with your instructor.
A friend or relative with an interest in aviation may join you on the flight.
Tea/coffee and biscuits provided in a heated seated area in the building.
Signed certificate on completion. You will also recieve an information pack on Learning to Fly. This hour will count towards your PPL should you wish to continue training so don't forget your logbook.
