    30 Minute Flying Lesson

    Feel the adrenalin rush as you take the controls of a light plane and soar across the sky above the English countryside (in 5 locations)!

    You or a recipient will receive one-to-one training with a Civil Aviation Authority licensed instructor and will spend approximately 30 minutes in the air. What you learn will depend on your chosen location but all participants receive flying time that counts towards a Private Pilot's licence.

    Previous customers have described the experience as: "Exhilarating, a little scary but a lot of fun” and “A fantastic experience from beginning to end”.

    Product Details:

    What's Included:

    • Introduction to flying, aircraft controls and safety.
    • One-to-one training from a CAA licensed instructor.
    • 30 minutes flying time with the opportunity to take the controls.
    • Experience gift pack including personalised voucher and message card. Please use the boxes above to personalise the voucher. If no details are supplied, the voucher will be sent out blank.
    • Cancellation indemnity.

    If you are sending the 30 Minute Flying Lesson directly to a recipient, they will receive a gift box including smart wallet, voucher for the experience and message card. They can then make the booking for the date of their choice.

    What happens on the day:
    Your flying lesson starts with a pre-flight briefing from your qualified instructor. This will cover safety, and an introduction to some of the controls.
    Once in the plane, you are given headphones so that you can hear conversations between your instructor and air traffic control. You will also be able to communicate with each other so you can be guided through your first lesson. Once in the air, you will be able to take the controls but your pilot will take over to land the plane at the airfield and taxi back.

    NEED TO KNOW (Depending on location):
    Minimum age: 12 (under 18s need parental/guardian consent). You should be in reasonable health and agile enough to climb into the aircraft. Minimum height 4ft 10in, Max height 6ft 4in. Maximum weight: 12 to 18 stone depending on location. These are guidelines only and we ask that you check any queries at the time of booking. Spectators are usually welcome, without charge, but will not be able to accompany you in the plane.

    We recommend you book at least 4 weeks in advance to ensure your preferred dates are available. Flying lessons take place all year round.

     This experience is available in 5 locations: Northamptonshire – Brackley, Cambridgeshire – Peterborough, County Durham – Durham, Essex - Stapleford Tawney, Nottinghamshire - Retford.
