You will learn the effects of an aircraft's controls and what you will be doing during your first trial flying lesson. Then it's time to walk out to the aircraft where you will be taken on a 'walk round' to see the main control surfaces of the aircraft. Your instructor will take off and then demonstrate some basic manoeuvres. Then it's your turn! Feel the aircraft respond to your lightest touch and experience for yourself the sheer exhilaration of flying.

When I was a kid one of my dreams was to become a pilot...
What did you get up to?
When I was a kid one of my dreams was to become a pilot and experiencing this, even if it was only for a short time, was one of the best things I have done in my life. When I arrived, the little boy inside me came out and I was genuinely so excited that I was actually going to be flying a plane! The lady at reception was ever so friendly from the moment I arrived and when I left. Before we got started, my instructor Ian asked me to help him re-fuel the plane which was interesting because I didn’t know the fuel tank for planes was in the wings! After re-fuelling, we boarded the plane and Ian explained the basic functions (believe me, there are a lot!) and then we took off for what was an amazing experience! During the flight we flew over the legendary Silverstone race track amongst all the other scenic views we had. I was fortunate enough to go on a sunny day so the whole thing was worth every second. The turbulence did scare me a few times but the excitement I had didn’t even let this phase me! Overall, I had a fantastic time and I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves a thrilling experience.
What did you enjoy the most?
Getting to see the views from this completely new perspective – it’s like being in your own private jet!
If you can, bring a Go-Pro to capture every second!
