Newtownards Airport Flying Experiences

Newtownards Airport opened in 1934 and was extensively used during WWII by the RAF. It is currently home to Ulster Flying Club and hosts frequent flying out of the airport, with helicopters, microlights and light aircraft all using the site. Newtownards Airport is in County Down and can be found around 11 miles from the City of Belfast, 0.9 Miles from the Town of Newtownards and 4.2 miles from Mount Stewart Gardens in Ireland. Today, the airfield is home to the Ulster Flying Club, founded in 1961. Over the years, the club has grown significantly and has become Northern Ireland's largest flying school and one of the largest non-commercial training and flying organisations. However, a fire in 2004 destroyed the clubhouse; a new one was soon built and opened by HRH, the Duke of York, in 2005.

Newtownards Airport offers a variety of Flying Experiences available for you to choose from and take part in, including Helicopter Sightseeing Rides and Helicopter Flying Lessons, which can all be booked with us today.

Terms and Conditions for Newtownards Airport

Once you order a voucher, it will be dispatched by one of our agency partners by e-voucher or by post, depending on which you choose when you checkout.

Vouchers are valid until the expiry date shown on your Voucher (typically 10-12 months).

In most cases, once you activate your voucher you will be sent the instructions to redeem the voucher directly with the airfield or operator. Because flying experiences (other than simulators) can only take place in suitable/ safe weather conditions, you must be prepared to be flexible on your activity date. If the agent or operator cancels your experience date, they will inform you as soon as possible and do their very best to offer an alternative date or location. Once a specific date has been booked, you will automatically become bound by the terms and conditions that the individual operator may have. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the descriptions contained on our products are a true reflection of the experience, these do not form part of a contract. If on contacting the operator you feel that the activity taking place no longer accurately represents the activity purchased, the relevant agent will exchange the voucher or refund the purchase price.

If you have any more questions about Newtownards Airport gift vouchers and experiences please contact us.
