Take to the sky and perform amazing aerobatics with this flying experience
Blast into the sky for an adrenaline rush you’ll never forget with this exhilarating and unique flying experience. Perfect for anyone who has ever wanted to fly a plane, this exciting treat will see you in the cockpit of a Bulldog aircraft with a real ex-military instructor! Your instructor will show you everything you need to fly like a fighter pilot, from take-off and turning to a variety of manoeuvres – including barrel rolls, loops and the Cuban eight.
Upon arrival you will be kitted out in a high quality military flying suit, before receiving a detailed safety briefing from your ex-military instructor. Once you’ve taken your seat in the cockpit of the Bulldog aircraft you’ll get to take off and practice basics such as turning, ascending and descending. Your instructor will then show you what the plane is capable of – demonstrating a variety of amazing manoeuvres – before handing the controls back to you! You’ll be able to try a variety of aerobatic manoeuvres, including the loop, aileron roll, stall turn, barrel roll, Cuban 8, slow roll, vertical roll and derry turn. After you have performed these exhilarating manoeuvres your instructor will talk you through your return to base. Your experience will end with a debrief, where you will receive a flight certificate and discover the number of Gs you have pulled.
