Feel the adrenaline rush as you take the controls of a light aircraft and soar across the sky above the English countryside while learning what it's like to actually pilot a plane with this 30 Minute Flying Lesson for one. At your chosen location you'll receive one-to-one tuition from a Civil Aviation Authority-licensed instructor, meaning you'll have expert guidance in getting to grips with the controls during every moment in the air. You'll have unbeatable views across the surrounding area, but we don't blame you if you want to stay focussed on the world ahead of your windscreen as you're thousands of feet above the ground! What you'll learn will depend on your chosen location, but all of your flying time will still count towards a Private Pilot's Licence should you be a budding flying hobbyist and planning to take to the skies again. Exhilarating, awe-inspiring and breath-taking all at once, this is an experience you'll want to try again as soon as it's over!
Need to Know
Your flying lesson starts with a pre-flight briefing from your qualified instructor. This will cover safety, and an introduction to some of the controls. Once in the plane, you are given headphones so that you can hear conversations between your instructor and air traffic control. You will also be able to communicate with each other so you can be guided through your first lesson. Once in the air, you will be able to take the controls but your pilot will take over to land the plane at the airfield and taxi back.
