If you live in Cornwall or are simply visiting the area for a day out, weekend break or a longer holiday, then why not enjoy a flying experience from Bodmin Airfield?
It’s your opportunity to view the stunning south-west of England from high above, seeing sights and scenery from a totally different perspective, while actually taking the controls.
There are many reasons why tourists and holidaymakers flock to Cornwall. Mouth-watering pasties, stunning coastlines, amazing beaches, surfing…but most likely for an incredible flying experience with FlyDays.co.uk!
Our experiences focus on learning the basics of flying, whether it’s in a small aircraft or a microlight.
These are great introductory lessons that will hopefully unlock a passion for aviation, even possibly as a future career. In fact, an aeroplane flying lesson can count towards gaining a Private Pilot’s Licence. Soon, you’ll be free as a bird.
Our 30-minute flying lesson in a two-seater aeroplane is the perfect way to experience the thrill of flying for the first time.
As a taster session, it covers the basics of flying and how to use the controls. Not before long though, you will be flying the aeroplane and growing in confidence as every minute passes.
Of course, you’ll be in safe hands as your instructor is Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) qualified and they will pass on their experience so you get the most out of your flight.
However, even after you’ve landed the experience hasn’t ended as you’ll be presented with a signed certificate. Yours to keep and act as a reminder of your first steps into the amazing world of aviation.
Microlights offer an alternative and fun-packed, way to learn to fly.
These agile aircraft pack a punch above their weight and are a great way to enjoy an introductory flying lesson.
As well as offering unrestricted views, microlights can be flown at a more leisurely pace, letting you enjoy the views from high above.
Once again, you’ll be with a CAA qualified instructor, so relax and enjoy your time in the air whether you are flying the microlight or taking in the scenery far below.
