Trial Flights / Trial Flying Lessons

Interested in learning to fly? Simply wanting to take the controls of a light aircraft? Looking for a special gift? Why not take a Trial Flight, it is the perfect introduction to flying light aircraft! Your instructor will give you a full pre-flight briefing on the fundamentals of flight, information about the aircraft's controls and discuss the route to be flown including any significant landmarks to look out for. Trial Flights are available in hourly or half-hourly slots and are 'brakes off to brakes on' so the briefing is not included in the time you pay for. You will usually be allowed to take the aircraft's controls under the close supervision of the instructor. All Trial Flights come with a gift card and a certificate is presented to you upon landing. For more information call 01332 810444 or email
