About the experience

Experience the thrill of flying in Northumberland against the most picturesque backdrop! Just a 40-minute drive north of Newcastle, our airfield at Athey's Moor offers 30-minute trial flights in light sports aircraft. Athey's Moor, located just outside the charming village of Longframlington, provides a perfect rural setting surrounded by farms and parks. Yet, it's just a short flight away from the vibrant cities of Newcastle and Berwick. Our flying school specialises in light sports aircraft, offering the comfort of a classic small plane with an enclosed glass cockpit and side-by-side seating. The fleet of trainer aircraft includes the popular high-wing CT32K by Flight Design and the sporty low-wing EuroStar, known for its impressive 1300km range. During the 30-minute flight, you'll explore the local area, which is adorned with formal gardens, parklands, country houses, and a stunning coastline. Take off and fly to Warkworth, the gateway to the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For a more immersive experience, opt for the two-hour flight and venture further afield to witness more of Northumberland's coastal and countryside beauty. These longer flights are perfect for combining in-depth teaching with sightseeing. But remember, amidst the captivating views, you'll also have the chance to take the controls and experience the thrill of piloting the plane yourself! Book your flying lesson now at Athey's Moor airfield in Northumberland, conveniently located near Newcastle and Morpeth. The light sports aircraft are ready and waiting for you to take flight!
