LEARN TO FLY
The first step in learning to fly is to take an hour out and try a flight, to see if you like it. Our trial flights are an ideal way to give it a go. The format is normally a short briefing on the ground, then take to the air for a 30 minute flight with one of our flying instructors, followed by a short debrief.
