About the experience

Experience an unforgettable flying lesson at Conington Airfield, also known as Peterborough Business Airport! Conveniently located within the triangle of Corby, Peterborough, and Huntingdon, this 60-minute lesson promises top-tier instruction in a relaxed and friendly environment. The airfield holds a CAA Ordinary Licence and offers the best of both worlds. Conington is a bustling hub for flying clubs and operators, providing essential services such as refueling, hangarage, and aero maintenance. The flying school here features an impressive fleet of aircraft available for training and hire, including models from Cessna, Piper, and Beech. Your lesson will take place in a cozy two-seater Cessna. Before you take to the skies, you'll receive a comprehensive pre-flight briefing, either in one of the classrooms or directly in the plane. Then, you'll start the engine and prepare for an exciting takeoff! Learning to fly at Conington is not just a lesson—it's a chance to connect with aviation history. The airfield, formerly known as RAF Glatton during the 1940s, served as a base for the USAF B-17 'Flying Fortresses.' These aircraft completed an impressive 237 missions and over 7000 sorties during World War II, with nearly 3000 personnel stationed there.
