Take the controls and pilot the plane during your 60 min flight
We believe it's a whole different world from thousands of feet up and bears no resemblance to being in a gigantic plane, so see if you agree when you take to the skies in a dual-controlled two-seater Cessna training plane on this full hour long flying experience. These craft let you sit side by side with a fully qualified instructor. On the ground they will already have talked you through a full safety briefing, so once you are in the plane they can go over the controls and if you are feeling like a budding pilot, you can even take over yourself and fly the plane. You may even get the bug and want to go for your own pilots licence.

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. 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. A pair of binoculars or a camera will come in handy.
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.
