What You'll Get
With the sky as the limit, this two-hour experience is ideal for people wishing to acquire a pilot’s licence, or those who are simply looking for a stint at the controls of an enclosed cockpit microlight. Fliers will take to the skies over Peterborough Business Airport for their choice of a 30- or 45-minute flight, accompanied by a CAA-qualified instructor who will share their wealth of knowledge, guiding guests through the fundamentals of flight before helping them perform turns, climbing and descending by working throttle controls and the aircraft’s flaps. On safe return to terra firma, tea and coffee will be served during a session of evaluation and feedback, and pilots will be presented with a Certificate of Introductory Flight Training Achievement. Customers will also be awarded a three-month flying club membership.
Choose from the following options for a two-hour introductory flying lesson:
£99 with 30-minute flight (50% off)
£109 for 45-minute flight (52% off)
Taking off from airfields close to Bedford and Peterborough, Nene Valley Microlights created FlyCB in 2003 with the aim of providing access to professionally-maintained aircraft for existing pilots, and training and guidance for beginner pilots. Sporting a hanger of new-generation enclosed cockpit EV-97 TeamEurostar microlights, the organisation offers all sorts of lessons for pilots of all experience levels. A syndicate share scheme was set up to help pilots ‘own’ their own aircraft without all the overheads of insurance and ongoing maintenance.
