Flying Lesson - 30 minute - UK Wide:  

The Experience

You'll soon be taking to the skies as you take the controls in a 30 minute Flying Lesson.

Upon arrival you'll be given a safety breifing and introduced to your highly qualified flying Instructor. You'll both climb inside the cockpit and go over the important pre-flight safety instructions. Then it's time to set off, chocks away!

Once in the skies you'll be given the chance to take the controls... who know's this could be your first steps towards a Private Pilots Licence!

Following your landing you'll have a short de-brief and a certificate presentation.

Flying Lesson - 30 minute - UK Wide: Fascinating Facts

How does something as heavy as an aircraft actually get off the ground? It started with man studying birds. How did the wing work in lifting and propelling birds in flight? The Wright Brothers, who took their first powered, heavier than air, flight in 1903 worked out the answer - it's the 'airfoil'. The wing on an aircraft is an airfoil so when air flows around the wing it creates lift. The way it creates lift is by the wing's movement through the air, and the air pressure created around the wing. An aircraft's wing, depending on type and design, is curved over the top of the wing and straighter underneath. This shape is key to how lift is created as the wing moves through the air. You will put this theory into practice as you take off in your light aircraft. Each centre flies different craft but, with famous names from Cessna to Piper on the cockpit and the technological expertise behind them, you can be confident you're piloting the 'sports cars' of the aeronautical world.
