Full hour Trial lesson in a 4 seater at Compton Abbas

£253.75 inc. VAT

Light aircraft trial lesson
Full hour Trial lesson in a 4 seater
A full 60 minute trial lesson in a 4 seater aircraft. Includes certificate to commemorate the day and if you get bitten by the flying bug will count towards your licence.

This experience will last a total of approx. 90 minutes, with approx. 60 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

Compton Abbas Airfield is ideally located on the top of hill on the border of Dorset and Wiltshire, and in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Already at 800ft when you line up for departure on the runway, as soon as the wheels leave the ground the scenery unfolds dramatically beneath you.
On the day of your flight - firstly you will have a chat with one of our qualified flying instructors and plan the route you would like to take; perhaps flying over your house. Once airborne you will have the opportunity to have a go at the controls and experience the unparalleled thrill of flying a light aircraft.
Take a camera and capture the beautiful Dorset countryside and coastal views.
Once back on the ground you are presented with a Compton Abbas Certificate to commemorate the day. If you do get bitten by the flying bug, the lesson will count as the first hour in your pilots log book, and go towards your private pilots license (not as expensive as you may think!). We're open all year round with some of the best flying weather actually being in the fresh and calm winter days.
What are you waiting for?
