Description

Become completely immersed in the wonderful world of flying with this trial flying lesson gift experience, where you’ll take the controls of an aircraft for an hour to become a master of the skies.

The art of flying is a fascinating one and what could be a more perfect introduction to this skill than this 60 minute flying lesson, where you’ll learn the basics of soaring through the skies, but you may also land with a taste for a new sky-high hobby.

This experience can be enjoyed at a host of flying locations situated across the UK, from Liverpool to Exeter, you’ll easily be able to embrace the fantastic freedom of flying wherever you choose to go.

Your thrilling flying experience will start with a pre-flight briefing delivered by your instructor, during which you’ll learn about the different functions of the aircraft’s controls and an overview of the experience itself, preparing for the excitement to follow. Before flying, you’ll also be shown the main control surfaces in a ‘walk around’ the aircraft, so you can familiarise yourself. The instructor will provide a demonstration of some of the basic manoeuvres required for your flight, then it’s time for you to go up, up and away! You’ll take the controls of the aircraft and feel it respond to your lightest touch whilst gaining an insight of what it’s like to navigate your way through the skies.

Please note that take-off and landing times are included in this 60 minute lesson.

Brilliant experience!

My wife bought this experience for my 70th birthday. Excellent pre flight briefing and flight. We flew an out and return route along part of the south Devon coast and I did most of the flying! I have no hesitation in recommending Aviation South West, based at Exeter Airport.
