Take the controls and pilot the plane during your 30 min flight
Take the opportunity to fly a real plane with this 30 minute light aircraft flight. Arrive at the airfield to meet your instructor for the experience and they will give you a talk on safety and flying techniques. Once that is out of the way you'll be introduced to the vehicle itself - a dual-controlled two-seater Cessna training plane. This small, light nippy craft seats just you and your instructor, who will talk you through the controls which are just in front of you. As well as the breathtaking views, you have the chance to take over and fly yourself during the flight, are you up for it?
