60 Minute Trial Flight Experience - North East

This light aircraft trial flight will allow you to take the controls for a hands-on adventure.

Flying Experience Days: This incredible trial lesson is a great way to learn the complex skill of flying a plane. Taking off from Teesside airport, this hands-on lesson will do more than teach you a thing or two about flying a light aircraft, it’ll also take you over some of the best sights the North East has to offer. A great adventure for anyone keen to explore the skies, while learning a new skill.

You’ll begin your experience at Teesside airport, where you’ll receive the friendliest of welcomes with a complimentary warm or cold drink. You’ll then be introduced to your co-pilot as he talks you through the route you’ll be taking, as well as the weather conditions and basics of flying an aircraft. After a short safety briefing, you’ll be ready to set off and begin your lesson!  After a take-off performed by your instructor, and a moment to get used to the aircraft, you’ll be handed over the controls for your turn! Whether you are serious about flying and want to obtain your Private Pilot's Licence or are just keen to see what flying is like and try something new, the exhilarating feeling of soaring through the clouds is unlikely to disappoint any adventurous soul. This experience is sure to give you an adrenaline buzz to last all day, not to mention a story to last a lifetime.

This is the perfect experience gift for anyone who has previously expressed an interest in flying or for any adventurous individual who is up for learning a new and interesting skill.
