What to expect on the day
When you arrive for your trial lesson you will be briefed by a member of staff on some of the controls of the aircraft and the safety points of the flight. You will then be taken up in the air with one of our qualified instructors who will hand the controls over to you so that you can experience what it’s like to fly a plane.
We welcome you to bring family and friends along. We have a seating area in the mouth of the hangar to soak up the sun (when it shines!) and watch your aircraft depart. We also have tea and coffee facilities. On the day wear comfortable casual clothes and sensible shoes – no high heels! Feel free to bring along cameras. Check out this video of one of our trial lessons.
Booking your Trial Flying Lesson
When you have a Trial Flying Lesson voucher and wish to book the flight just call 01253 342660.
We suggest that if you wish to book on a weekend then booking about two or three weekends in advance. For a weekday slot, about a week to ten days should be all that is required.
Before setting off on the day, make sure to telephone Westair to check on the weather even if it’s blue skies out of the window!
Upgrade – share your lesson!
If you have a voucher for a 2 seat aircraft and would like to upgrade to a 4 seat aircraft so that 2 of your friends can enjoy the flight as well, just tell us when you book the flight in. An additional price of £40 (£50 for half day) is required which can be paid on the day.
There are a number of safety points that we need to bring to your attention before you fly with us:
- Ensure children are supervised at all times
- Do not go beyond the hangar doors onto the airfield apron without supervision
- No smoking in the hangar or aircraft.
