The half day experience consists of a flight from Blackpool airport to another airfield. Flight times are typically an hour each way. At the airfield we will include lunch & a non-alcoholic beverage, plus an opportunity to discuss the flight and the return journey.
This is a great day out and, if you are interested in learning to fly, a great introduction in what to expect with the PPL. If the flight takes place in our 4 seat aircraft two people can be carried in addition to the instructor. This allows one person to enjoy a trial lesson on the flight out, and the other person (if they desire) to have a trial lesson on the return flight.
Two seater – 1/2 Day Experience – £350.00
Four seater – 1/2 Day Experience – £399.00
