Two-hour experience featuring two half-hour flights; available at choice of six locations
About This Deal
Fledging pilots have the opportunity to take to the controls of a PA28 Warrior or similar, with a two-hour aircraft experience. After a full briefing, two 30-minute flights at 200ft allow confidence to build up; one flight is used to observe the pilot and ask any questions, while the second encourages participants to take on the role of primary controller. After the session, guests will be awarded a signed flight certificate as proof. Flights take off from one of six locations across England, while an observer can be brought along at certain locations to experience the ride for a £50 supplement. Spectators are also welcome in order to document the day with videos and photographs.
