Trial Flights

In light of the latest advice on Covid 19 prevention, we have decided to suspend bookings of trial flights for the month of October and will review the situation at the end of that period.
Please note that when we do begin operating these flights again, we will have procedures in place to ensure that both our staff and our visitors remain safe from Covid 19 so please arrive a few minutes before your flight is due to begin so that we can ensure that these measures have been completed. Masks MUST be worn by all passengers at all times in the cockpit, these may be purchased at reception if you do not bring your own.

The perfect introduction to flying – whether booking for yourself or as a gift voucher for someone special, a trial flight lesson is the ideal way to experience taking control of a light aircraft for the first time.

Our two seat Cessna 152s are ‘high wing’ aircraft offering amazing views of the ground below. With their robust build and straightforward layout they are the ideal ‘starter’ aircraft for student pilots.

30 minutes – £91
42 minutes – £126
60 minutes – £166

Our PA28 is a four seat ‘low wing’ aircraft offering more space including two rear seats to take along passengers to enjoy the experience with you.

30 minutes – £111
42 minutes – £151
60 minutes – £201

Your lesson will begin with a short briefing from your instructor to introduce you to the safety checks and use of the aircraft controls. Then you will be under way with your instructor guiding you through every aspect of your flight, once airborne you will take the controls until it is time to land.

If you decide to sign up as a student pilot the Trial Flight Lesson time can be logged as part of the hours required towards gaining your licence.

Please note: All flights are subject to weather conditions and to aircraft weight & balance restrictions.

The club reserves the right to amend flight bookings in the interest of safety.

All vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of issue.

Refunds for vouchers purchased are only available up to 3 months from date of issue. A £10 administration fee is applicable on all refunds.
