Stop dreaming about flying, and do it! Take to the skies in a 2 seater or 4 seater light aircraft and learn how to control one of these fantastic machines! With expert tuition from your experienced pilot, you'll soon be feeling the wind beneath your wings and soaring over some truly spectacular scenery. 

Upon arrival at the airport, your experience will begin with a welcome and a thorough briefing from your instructor. You'll climb into the pilot's seat before being introduced to your aircraft and acquainting yourself with the various controls and instruments you'll be using during the flight....then it's chocks away! Once in the air, and under the watchful eye of your friendly instructor, you'll be in control of the aeroplane for the duration. For 30 breathtaking minutes, you'll be flying over the stunning scenery of the Mendip Hills and the familiar sights of Bristol city, so don't forget to take a moment to admire the world from afar. Then, once your feet are back on solid ground, you are more than welcome to grab a drink from the fully licensed bar whilst you quiz your pilot with any questions you may have...or simply relax with your loved ones whilst you re-live every spectacular moment.

If your loved one - be they young or old - has always always dreamed of being a pilot, then now's the time! This 30 minute flying lesson is a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed!
