What You'll Get
Over the course of two hours, two learner pilots will get the chance to take control of a Piper PA28 light aircraft in this taster session. Following a briefing, each will fly it for 30 minutes to an airfield, before hopping into the rear for 30 minutes of observational air time. The hands-on period can be counted towards guests’ Private Pilots License. Afterwards they could tuck into a three-course meal featuring starters of whitebait and pâté; main courses of roast pork or stilton crumble; and desserts such as chocolate brownie or treacle sponge. Meals will be served with a bottle of Champagne, letting pairs toast their day of adventurous aviation.
Choose Between Two Options
- £195 for a two-hour flying experience for two (22% off)
- £249 for a two-hour flying experience and meal with Champagne for two (22% off)
