Cumbernauld Airport is conveniently located within easy reach of Scotland’s two largest cities, about 18 miles northeast of Glasgow and less than 40 miles from Edinburgh.
Nestled in North Lanarkshire, it offers first-class flying facilities, as you would expect from one of Scotland’s busiest airfields for private pilot training.
A helicopter flight with FlyDays.co.uk is undoubtedly one of the most exciting ways to head skywards.
It’s hard to match the thrill of a vertical take-off. Yet, within seconds the chopper is high above the ground, whisking its occupants over stunning scenery, allowing them to take in the beautiful views from a bird’s eye perspective.
Tempted? Well the good news is that Cumbernauld Airport has a range of helicopter flying experiences to enjoy.
Cumbernauld Airport has two helicopter flying experiences which are ideal for one person.
Whether it’s the tactical helicopter flying lesson or the insight to becoming a helicopter pilot, either will provide an adrenaline rush unlike anything else and could ignite a passion for a future in aviation.
Both experiences allow you to actually fly the helicopter. How’s that for the ultimate bragging rights?
Double the fun with our tactical helicopter flying lesson for two.
This is your chance to fly over North Lanarkshire with a friend, partner or loved-one and gain a basic knowledge of how a helicopter flies.
Once again, there’ll be the chance to put what you’ve learnt into practice by taking the controls.
A booklet is also included in the package, which explains some key aircraft handling techniques.
However, the best part is that because it’s an experience for two people it can be shared, with great memories for years to come.
Make it a triple bill with our exclusive tactical helicopter flying lesson for three.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a group of three to get hands-on experience of helicopter flying and possibly set one, or all of them, on the path to a Helicopter Pilot’s Licence.
