Trial Lessons - a hand on Flying Experience

Whether as a gift for a friend or relative or as an introduction to flying, the first step to take is to arrange a trial flying lesson. This involves a thorough briefing by the instructor followed by the flight, during which you will be given as much time at the controls as possible.

The instructor will carry out the take-off and will then demonstrate the effects of controls on the aircraft, involving turning as well as climbing and descending. Following this you will be given control of the aircraft and will be flying until the end of the allocated time when the instructor will land the plane.

If you decide to proceed with your private pilots licence this time will count towards your required flying hours.

Trial lessons can be booked by calling 01622 891539 or by buying online here.

A voucher will be sent to you and then all that is required is a phone call to book your slot. On the day of your flight please call a couple of hours earlier to check that the weather is suitable for your flight.

The cost of trial lessons are:-

  • 30 minutes from £89.00 (*)
  • 45 minutes from £129.00 (*)
  • 60 minutes from £169.00 (*)

All prices include VAT and landing fees and are based on one person. Flights will be taken in either a Cessna 150/152 or a Robin DR 400. If you would like to take a passenger then a small additional charge is made as a bigger aircraft will be required.
