ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

30 Minute Flying Experience in Durham

See Durham from the sky! This 30 minute flying experience allows you to experience the thrill of flight with a trained pilot by your side. You'll even get a go at the controls!

Take to the skies, and catch an incredible view of Tyne and Wear with this 30-minute flying experience! Your experienced pilot will tailor the route to suit your preferences, but you can expect to see such memorable sights as The Angel of the North or Durham Cathedral or the coast (dependant on route), Newcastle, The Tyne Bridges, Tynemouth and Sunderland.

This is an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime flying experience for anyone who wants to see what their home patch looks like from the sky. You’ll meet your trained pilot at the base, and they’ll give you a short introduction on what to expect from the day ahead, plus a safety briefing before the fun begins! Next, climb into the front seat of the aeroplane and marvel at the weightless sensation of lifting off the ground. You’ll never forget the indescribable feeling of seeing your town shrink below you as you take off. Once you’re in the air, your pilot will take time to show you the surrounding points of interest. Imagine the majesty of Durham Cathedral or The Angel of the North as seen from the sky! You’ll even have the opportunity to take the controls, so if it’s always been a dream of yours to be a pilot, this is a great place to start.

Whether you want to experience the thrill of a lifetime, or know someone who deserves an out-of-the-ordinary present, the 30 Minute Flying Experience in Durham makes the perfect day out!
