Learn to Fly:

Introductory Flight / Trial Lesson


So you're wondering if you'd like to learn to fly? You want to find out if you really can get your Private Pilot's License. We can help answer these questions and more. Arranging a 'Trial Lesson' is one of the best ways you can find the answers to these questions and develop the flying bug!

The trial flight or Air Experience Flight normally lasts about half an hour. One of our qualified instructors will brief you and explain all the checks they are doing, prior to flying, and show you just how the aircraft flies. Then they will give you 'control' of the aircraft so that you can get the feel of what it is like to fly it. (All our aircraft have dual controls).

The primary aim of the Trial Lesson is to give some flight experience and help towards deciding if a potential student wishes to go ahead and 'Learn to Fly'. All our trial flights are carried out in our club aircraft - a Robin DR200.

This initial flight can be logged as part of the Course, and counts towards your license.
