If becoming a pilot is a dream of yours and even possibly a career choice, then the 5 hour Introductory Package is most certainly for you.
The package is a discounted way of ensuring that learning to fly is something that you are certain about. The last thing anyone wants is to commit to a course with any uncertainty. This package gives you all of the advantages of getting airborne, without any significant commitment.
With 5 separate flights (on 5 separate days), which all count towards your licence, you will be immersed into the world of aviation. Whether you wish to book intensively or once a week, you will receive the same fantastic standard of training, following a structured syllabus aimed at teaching you the first part of the Private Pilot Licence.
During your time in the air you will learn about flying straight and level, climbing and descending and you may even get to assist the instructor with landing the aircraft. All training is conducted in the 4 seat Piper PA-28.
As with any course, there is a ground briefing for each lesson too. Here you will assess the weather conditions of the day and run through the exercise in which you will be flying. Our package also includes a pilot log book and aircraft checklist to help you get you on your way towards your PPL. The only thing left for you to do is book yourself in and fly!
A Trial Lesson follows a typical first lesson format with the emphasis on you taking the controls and flying.
After a short briefing on the ground on the effects of the flying controls and how to manoeuvre the aircraft the instructor will do the pre flight checks with you and instruct you on taxing to the runway holding point ready for take off.
Once airborne and familiar with the controls you will be flying the aircraft following exercise three (‘straight & level’) of the Private Pilots Licence syllabus. On your return you will be presented with a First Flight Certificate with the details of your flight, and this first hour can count towards gaining your Licence.
All prices subject to change. Please ensure you read our Terms & Conditions before purchasing your voucher.
Please note: All participants of flying lessons must be over 14 years old. All Lessons are conducted as such and are not pleasure flights in anyway – although they are pleasurable!
Participants can (subject to conditions on the day) take an additional person in the back of the 4 seat PA28 Warrior as an observer. This person will enjoy the lesson from a 3rd person perspective and will join in during the briefing.
