Take the controls and pilot the plane during your 30 min flight
Get behind the controls of a Cessna 152 in this authentic flying experience. Start on the ground with a briefing on safety and flying techniques, before hopping aboard with your expert instructor. Then it's 'chocks away' for a 30 minute flight over the green fields of Surrey in the dual-controlled, two-seater plane. At the pilot's discretion, take the controls and experience the unrivalled freedom of flying a light aircraft. Whether you are working towards a Private Pilot's Licence (PPL), or you simply want to fly a plane, this experience will spread your wings. The feeling of liberty and control and the absolute joy of flying a plane is hard to describe, but you will know when you have caught the flying bug.
