An introductory flight is the first step in every pilot’s career. For many this is the realisation of a long awaited dream, or it may be the first step towards a new career.  Maybe you just fancy a one off lesson at the controls of a light aircraft, or you're stuck for that special Birthday / Christmas / Anniversary gift for a special friend or relative.

All of our Introductory Flights are structured to get you flying in an aircraft with a qualified pilot, and to give you an introduction to the flying experience. You will be surprised how different it is to a flight in the back of an airliner, when you are in the cockpit of an aircraft you can see so much more outside. You will also see how the aircraft is operated while listening to the radio as well. 

The experience starts with a short safety briefing and explanation of what to expect.

The flight itself will proceed in a relaxed, but professional manner and the pilot  may be able to provide an explanation about the effects of each flying control, (ailerons, flaps, and rudder) and how they are used in flight. If you are looking for the opportunity to undertake a large part of the actual flying once airborne and count this flight as one towards a lesson please ensure you specifically request an FI to carry out the flight (this may lead to less availability). 

All bookings in the 4 seat aircraft are for one person, however if weight restrictions and the instructor allow, you may be able to take up to two additional people at a charge of £20.00 each. 

Visit us and see what it’s like. It’s completely up to you, if you don’t feel like taking control of the aircraft, just say so, there is no pressure and your instructor/pilot will happily remain in control. You may wish to take in the views of  North Wales, the Wirral or fly over your house to take a photograph. The details of the flight are quite flexible and you can discuss the journey before taking off.

If you enjoy the flight, and consider that flying is for you, then you may want to take some additional lessons, your pilot will be happy to discuss further training options with you. There is absolutely no pressure or obligation on your part. If you do decide to train for a Private Pilot Licence, your introductory flight may count towards your flying training hours if you have carried it out with a Flight Instructor (FI).

If you would like to purchase an 'Introductory Flight' as a special present for a friend or relative  or to treat yourself we can provide ‘Introductory Flight Vouchers’ with the date left open for you to book at your leisure.
