This truly unforgettable flying lesson is a great way to enjoy the complete aerial experience. You’ll receive expert guidance and tuition from an experienced pilot during your 60 minute lesson, which is split into two exciting 30 minute sections – one as pilot and one as observer! This is a great chance to discover the thrill of flight from two very different perspectives, taking control of the aircraft and viewing the stunning landscape below you; the world is a very different place from two thousand feet up!
Upon arrival your friendly and experienced instructor will give you a full safety briefing. Your experience will last up to two hours, including two flight legs of approximately 30 minute flights: Observation and hands on control of aircraft. You’ll be amazed as you soar above the stunning landscape below, before taking the controls under the careful guidance of a professional instructor. You will receive a de-brief and flight certificate upon landing and the pilot leg can count towards your pilot’s licence. Spectators are welcome and may take photographs, and what’s more you can bring an observer on board both flights with you for just £50 extra (subject to availability, not available at Blackpool)!

Experience not to forget :)
I took control of the plane with my own hands. I helped to take off and fully control the plane. I rolled the plane left and right. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and took a friend with me. We flew over 2000 feet. Poor weather conditions were coming in so we flew locally but normally you would fly to a different airport. I will do it again in the future. Highly recomended.
