Enjoy a 30 minute lesson with a CAA approved instructor! The trainers here are exceptional as they come from a specialist teaching school rather than a flying club. This ensures that you get the most from your lesson in the clouds. Enjoy the flight centre's excellent hospitality and outstanding facilities during this fantastic lesson. Once you've landed, you will leave the airport with a new knowledge of flight principles, light aircraft and most importantly, how to fly a plane!
On arrival to the flight training centre you will be greeted with by your own pilot who will take you for your lesson. Enjoy complimentary coffee or tea and biscuits throughout the briefing that starts things off. Firstly, there will be a short discussion and demonstration of the principles of flight and the controls of the plane. You will also plan the route you will take during your flight. Then it's time to jump into the pilot's seat, watching as your instructor takes off and runs through the controls of the cockpit. You will be guided through basic manoeuvres and will be in complete control of the aircraft for most of the flight (under close dual control supervision).

This experience is available at 2 Locations:

  • County Durham (North) - Darlington
  • Tyne & Wear (North) - Newcastle
Your voucher is valid for 10 months for one person. When you book you must inform the centre if you are over 6'4” or over 16 stone as an extra charge may be necessary if a bigger plane is required. Suitable for over 14s: under 18s must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Family and friends are welcome to come along and watch you fly. You must become a member of the air centre on the day - this is free of charge and ensures you are covered by the centre's insurance. All lessons are subject to availability and weather conditions on the day; clients are advised to phone the morning of the lesson to check it is safe to fly.

I bought this for my boyfriend's 21st birthday. He's even thinking about taking up more hours and getting a license now!
