Reach for the sky with your first flying lesson and soar away into the wide blue yonder. Under expert tuition, you can take the controls yourself and discover the absolute freedom of the sky. This is the perfect gift idea for anyone who loves flying, and with a chance to actually control a plane yourself this flying activity gift is ideal for high flyers.
Your 30 minute flying lesson begins with a pre-flight briefing with your instructor. You will learn the effects of an aircraft's controls and what you will be doing during your first trial flying lesson. Then it's time to walk out to the aircraft where you will be taken on a 'walk round' to see the main control surfaces of the aircraft. Your instructor will take off and then demonstrate some basic manoeuvres. Then it's your turn! Feel the aircraft respond to your lightest touch and experience for yourself the sheer exhilaration of flying.
