About the experience

Choose an Airfield from one of the available nationwide locations to have a 30 minute Flying Lesson. There is no better way to take the first steps to getting your wings. On arrival you will be welcomed and given a pre flight briefing. Your lesson will be in a 2 seater light aircraft such as a Piper or Cessna. You will be given the opportunity to take the controls and fly the plane yourself. Your friends or family will be able to watch you taking off and landing from the viewing area and take plenty of photos of your first time in the pilot's seat. So dust off those aviators you have and get ready to take to the skies.
