£162.50 inc VAT

Light aircraft trial lesson
30 Minute 4 Seat Trial Lesson
Take to the skies over the scenic Dorset coastline. Take the controls of the aircraft under the watchful eye of the Instructor. Why not bring one other person with you at no extra cost to enjoy the activity from the backseat?

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

The lesson is designed for you to enjoy the awesome experience of flying not just from a sight seeing point of view, but from the actual pilot's seat. You will be allowed to take the controls of the aircraft whilst being assisted by a qualified instructor. We fly out of Bournemouth Airport and all of the flights cover the magnificent South coast and its amazing views. The aircraft has a spare seat, so if you wish to bring someone along with you to enjoy the experience, please do (only one extra person please).

Birthday Gifts

(Reviewed by David Parr 20/08/2016)

(sorting date) Very easy including 2 call backs to confirm late availability of flights. (getting there) very easy as grand children who were to fly were on holiday near Bournemouth airport. (staff) very friendly and re booked flights due to poor weather on selected date. 2 flights booked for grand children's birthdays (21 and 17) full briefings given although granddaughter did ask would the pilot be there when she had control! Both were delighted as one flight went west and the other east over the coast. (taking photos) young people always take 1000's. Excellent thanks

(sorting date) Simply and straight forward. Excellent everything you needed to enhance the experience. Staff were brilliant and explained and reassured us with professional expertise. (Briefing was) Very reassuring and went through everything with a relaxed but professional approach. Absolutely the best experience one we would repeat. Yes loads of time to end with photos, chats and certificates. The service and experience was so good that we will definitely be returning to experiencing another thrilling flight. Many thanks for a great time

R H Flight Experience

This was initially purchased by my partner as a 71st Birthday Treat. Subsequent to this I was able to contact the operator easily to arrange a date which unfortunately due to bad weather we had to cancel. Within two days with weather set fair I again easily contacted the operator who fixed flight for the same day.The postcode on SATNAV was wildly inaccurate - a site layout board at the entrance would have saved a lot of time.We eventually found a board which enabled us to quickly locate the building we needed. Staff and equipment were First Class in all aspects. The briefing was clear and concise - unhurried. The instructor was knowledgable and helpful. The experience itself was SUPER - we hope to come again. We did not take photos but there was no sense of having to push along. Overall an Excellent Experience.

(Reviewed by Derek Atkinson 23/08/2015)

Sorting date was excellent it enabled us to arrange accomodation with ease. Venue easy to find. Pleasant waiting room, cafe and toilets. Outside seating allowed us to see other flights taking place. Very professional, thorough, and reassuring. Initially apprehensive but with much reassurance I began to relax and feel in control. The landing was exhilerating. We took photos of the plane, pilot and myself. In telephone conversations with experiences4all I was dealt with fairly, politely and comprehensively.

Organising the event was excellent. It was very easy to contact the operator - communications were brilliant. Getting to the venue was not as easy. A few more signs would not go amiss. Facilities were great and I felt well looked after. The staff were helpful; polite and very knowledgable. The equipment was basic but I didn't want to fly with the "Red Arrows". The briefing was clear and put in a way that I think most people could understand. The experience itself was EXCELLENT. BRILLIANT. Could not have been a better experience. I was not rushed off the site at the end and the staff were again very warm.

Overall rating: Excellent
