For a full list of locations please check the fact sheet in the image area.

Feel the adrenaline rush as you take the controls of your light aircraft and soar across the sky, you’ll 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.

Flying lessons take place all year round and are normally available on any day of the week.

We recommend you book at least four weeks in advance to ensure that dates are available. This is only a guideline and we advise you to book as early as possible to ensure that dates are available before the expiry date listed on your voucher. All bookings are subject to availability.

You should allow 1 hour for your whole experience, but the flight (from taxi to landing) will last approximately 25-30 minutes.

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. Facilities for spectators vary between centres, so you should check with the centre when booking.

The experience content, equipment used and restrictions may vary according to location.
