£249.00

Quick Overview

Anyone who enjoys flying will love this – the chance to get behind the controls and fly a plane themselves. This is the ideal valentines gift for him
When you arrive at the airfield you will get a proper pre-flight briefing with a Civil Aviation Authority licensed instructor who will tell you all you need to know about flying and will answer all your questions as well as putting you at ease! You will learn how the aircraft’s controls operate and hear more about what your first flying lesson will entail. You will also learn all about flying safety, so you will know what to expect once you have taken off. After that you will be taken to the airplane where you can see how the control board works and get your first hands-on experience inside the cockpit.
Then it’s time to buckle up and go! Your instructor will take off and show you some basic manoeuvres and how to control the plane once in the air. After that you will get a chance to try it out yourself and truly marvel at how the plane responds to your lightest touch and what it really feels like to control an aircraft on your own. You can try out turning, climbing and descending and your instructor will be there to talk you through everything – you will also be given headphones so it’s easy to talk to your instructor, plus you can hear conversations between your instructor and air traffic control.
After that your instructor will bring you back to the airfield safe and sound while your friends and family watch on and take pictures of your triumph. You will be presented with a certificate which will – should you want to pursue your flying career – count towards a Private Pilot’s licence. Oh, and a massive adrenaline rush as a bonus!
Your flight lesson voucher will include:
30 minute-Pre-flight introduction to flying, aircraft controls and safet.Expert tuition and one-to-one training from a CAA licensed instructor
30 minute flying time in the Air

  • You prefer a high wing or low wing aircraft
  • Phone our office on the day of your scheduled flight at least 2 hours in advance to confirm the flight

What is going to happen on the day of arrival?

The journey will start with a flight briefing by our experienced flight instructors. The basic aircraft manoeuvres and the principle of the flying will be explained.

Once you become familiar with the aircraft, it will be time to put into practice your newly acquired knowledge in a real light aircraft, under close supervision of your pilot instructor. During this training flight you will have the chance to handle the aircraft controls and experience the freedom of the sky as never before.

At the end of the journey you will be issued with a ‘Flight Certificate’ to commemorate your experience. Of course, should you ever wish to continue and realise your dream of becoming a pilot, the time spent in the aircraft is counted towards the minimum hours required for the issue of a Private Pilot's Licence.
