Bought for my husband and father in law, they both had an amazing experience, their pilot instructor was very welcoming and made their experience the best. My only disappointment was not being informed that the cafe was closed to the public as they had an event. So while we waited were not allowed to sit inside , after complaining they did allow us to order drinks.

What You'll Get

The Deal

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)
