The Perfect Gift

Trial Lessons from £139

Trial Flying Lessons make a wonderful gift for the first-time pilot or just someone who has dreamed of flying a light aircraft. Your flying time even counts towards a Private Pilots Licence so who knows, it could be the first steps towards achieving this.

You will receive friendly instruction on the basic principles of flight before and during the flight, then take the controls yourself and discover the exhilaration of piloting your own aircraft over the Essex countryside and coastline. Trial Lessons are carried out by a fully qualified flying instructor in a Cessna 152 aircraft.

The aim of a trial lesson is to teach you the basic principles of how an aeroplane flies and essentially let you have a go at performing some basic manoeuvres yourself.
