TRIAL FLYING LESSONS / EXPERIENCE FLIGHTS AND GIFT VOUCHERS


"At 15 years old I was given a flying experience day as
a Christmas present and from the outset I was hooked!"
Kyle R, Wigan

A trial lesson can be purchased for yourself or as a gift for a friend or relative and make an excellent present for any occasion. We offer, at any time to suit you, a trial lesson which is a full 'hands on' experience flying a real light aircraft. This gives you an insight into what it actually feels like to be at the controls. If you wish to continue learning to fly after your trial flying lesson then that time can be 'logged' towards gaining your pilot's licence. With every trial lesson purchased you will receive a gift voucher, this can be e-mailed, sent first class post or collected from our office.



You will also receive a brochure on the experience and a certificate on completion of your lesson. Vouchers are non-refundable and valid for a full six months from the date of purchase.
