60 Minute Light Aircraft Flight in Bristol
Simple to fly, yet fun and nimble, the Cessna 150 has long been one of the most popular training planes in flight schools and military airports around the world. Begin with a comprehensive flight briefing, to explain the principles of flying, the controls of the plane and safety measures. Then it's time to hop in the pilot's seat and take to the air, soaring above the clouds of the West Country and taking in gorgeous bird's-eye views of the country and towns. A friendly, experienced instructor will take the passenger seat to guide would-be pilots through this hour-long aerial experience, which also counts towards getting a solo pilot's license.
