Experience the unique thrill of ultra-light aviation with a 30 minute light aircraft flight in Cumbria. Begin with a detailed briefing on safety and fundamental flying techniques before boarding a two-seater Cessna 152 training craft with a fully qualified pilot. Once in the air, enjoy spectacular birds-eye views whilst the pilot takes the plane for a spin. During the flight (at the pilot's discretion), take over the reins to assume the role of honorary pilot and experience the incredible sensation of flying first-hand.
