30 Minute Flying Lesson in Cornwall

See lovely Cornwall from the sky with this fantastic 30 minute Trial Flight over stunning Cornish scenery. You'll be flying with an experienced instructor in a 3 seater Light Aircraft.

Price for 1 participant

If you know someone who's ready to fly, but needs a little help taking off, then why not treat them to the perfect flying experience with this 30 minute trial flight over Newquay and the gorgeous Cornish coast, in a Robin Dr400 3 seater aircraft?

This thirty minute flying lesson gives you plenty of time to get to grips with the 'stick and rudder' controls of the Dr400, and is long enough to ensure you enjoy superb views of some of Newquay and Cornwall's famously beautiful coastline.  You'll begin with an introduction to the lesson and aircraft, as well as a thorough overview of the principles of flying this lovely light aircraft.  Once that's done, you'll take a seat in the Robin Dr400 and get ready for take off! Your instructor will take the controls for that bit, but once you're airborne and soaring over Cornwall, you'll have the chance to take control yourself, and actually fly the plane! With a thirty minute flying lesson, you'll have plenty of time to really get a feel for these wonderful aircraft. Don't forget to take in as much of the spectacular scenery as you can; it's not every day you get to see the beautiful South West from such a spectacular perspective. The pilot will take you back down to earth at the end of the lesson, where you'll be presented with a certificate of flight.

Whether you want to continue on with your flying lessons and earn a Private Pilot's Licence, or you simply want to experience the joy of flying a light aircraft, this 30 minute flight experience is a truly unforgettable way to do it!
