Take the controls and pilot the plane during your 60 min flight
Enjoy a flight in something a little more personal than the 747 you would climb aboard for holidays. Start with a briefing on the ground from your personal instructor on flying techniques and safety. After the briefing has ended, you'll jump into a dual-controlled two seater Cessna 152 training plane for your 60 minute flight, during which time the pilot can will illustrate the controls and the joy of flying a plane - you may even be given the chance to take control yourself. These small planes are nippy and light and offer a whole new perspective.
Seven days a week throughout the year (except Mondays and public holidays). Please allow a minimum of six weeks advance booking notice.
Maximum height is 6'. Maximum weight is 14 stone.
Flying is weather dependent and it's essential that you call the venue for a weather check. For morning bookings call the day before, for afternoon/evening bookings call before setting out. Cancelled flights can be rebooked direct.
Your experience will last for about 80 minutes, including your 60 minute flight. Please allow for around an hour and a half at the venue. Flight times are approximate and are the chocks-off to chocks-on duration.
Numbers on the Day
Your briefing might be shared. Your flight will be held on a one-to-one basis with the instructor.
Spectators are welcome to watch you take off and land. There is a restaurant on-site which overlooks the airfield.
Wear flat-soled shoes. Sunglasses are recommended all year round.
Your flying time can count towards a Private Pilot's Licence (PPL). To qualify for a PPL you need 35 hours of dual control and 10 hours solo flying. If you have ever wanted to be a pilot, this is a great way to get started.
