The Introductory Flying Lesson

The Introductory Flying Lesson

Sometimes called an ‘introductory lesson’ or ‘experience flight’, a trial lesson is your first step on the journey towards obtaining a Private Pilot’s Licence – a chance to try your hand at piloting an aircraft with a qualified instructor on-hand to guide you along the way. Gaining a full licence can be a ...

Light Aeroplanes

Light aeroplanes are by far the most popular flying machines for aspiring aviators looking to earn their wings. As the first successful powered aircraft (not counting balloons), the invention of the aeroplane marked the first time mankind could practically take to the skies in a controllable way, and the technology of ...


The helicopter is really an astounding aircraft when you think about it. While all other aircraft make use of either forward thrust and broad wings (like a plane) or lighter-than-air gas (hot-air balloons and airships) to make their way into the skies, the helicopter employs a unique mechanism to gain lift. ...


In the world of powered flight, microlighting offers the last word in value for money, being not only inexpensive (lessons start from as little as £45), but also a unique and exhilarating flight experience. The microlight experience is also super-flexible, as these small but powerful aircraft come in two very ...


Gyroplane, gyrocopter, autogyro or rotaplane… whatever you call them, there’s no getting away from the fact that these hybrid flying machines are just plain weird.

Vintage Biplanes

If your idea of the ultimate flying experience begins with the phrase ‘Chocks away old boy!’ then a flight in a vintage biplane might just be what you’re after. For an authentic adventure from the golden age of aviation, nothing else comes close to a lesson (complete with goggles and bomber jacket, naturally) in a ...


To misquote a certain loveable water-vole, "there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in gliders."Gliders enjoy a special place in the hearts of many amateur aviators. It's easy to see why - soaring through the air in a glider is a truly unique experience. Where other ...

Flight Simulators

Since as early as the 1930s, flight simulators have been an exciting and popular way to get a taste of the pilot experience without ever actually leaving the ground. From humble beginnings as not much more than a tin chassis that tilted side to side a bit, simulation technology has taken full advantage of the computer ...


Imagine a rollercoaster ride without the track and you'll have some small idea of what aerobatic flight is like. Rather than a specific aircraft, aerobatics is the sport of extreme flying - looping, rolling and diving through the air like a bird playing on the wind - quite literally aerial acrobatics.Most aerobatic ...
