XFLIB Our Price Match Promise


Enjoy an intimate journey aboard a small aircraft for a half hour flight - just long enough to take in some magnificent views from either a two seater training plane (such as a Cessna or a Piper) or a nimble motorglider with a fully qualified instructor. Watch as the pilot flies the craft with ease, explains the controls and demonstrates how it is done. At the pilot's discretion (for confident feeling flyers), take over the controls and feel the true thrill of flying a plane. Gifts for him or her don't come much better than this and anyone who catches the flying bug can use the time in the air towards a Private Pilot's Licence.

In a Nutshell
  • Glide through the sky with this light aircraft flight
  • Take the controls and pilot the plane
  • Can contribute towards a Private Pilot's Licence

    Many venues operate seven days a week all year round. Please note that weekends are particularly busy - please book several weeks in advance. During the winter months flights are usually run earlier in the day, during daylight hours.

    Flying is a weather dependent activity and it's essential to call the venue for a weather check before setting out. If the flight is cancelled because of the weather, it will be re-booked for an alternative date or time.
  • Duration
    The experience lasts for about 40 minutes, including a 30 minute flight. Flight times are approximate and are the chocks-off to chocks-on duration.
  • Numbers on the Day
    The briefing might be shared. The flight is held on a one-to-one basis with the instructor.
