Learning to fly an aeroplane is a challenging and rewarding experience and is also guaranteed to put a huge smile on anyone's face. In this introductory lesson you will take to the controls of a Cessna. Imagine the excitement as you feel the aircraft respond to your lightest touch! For those who want to take it further, this flight is also logable towards the completion of the Private Pilots Licence.
You'll arrive at the airport and initially receive a full briefing from a qualified ground instructor. You will then be shown round to the aircraft and take your seat at the controls. Once airborne you will be given the opportunity to take the controls yourself and, with guidance from the instructor, carry out some basic manoeuvres of flying.
