About the experience

Those with an eye on getting into aviation will be off to a flying start - quite literally - with this fantastic value Starter package! And the reason why it's because for a special price, we've bundled together 5 hour long flying lessons in a 4 seater aeroplane. And it gets better, because you or the lucky recipient will be learning to fly at the historic Biggin Hill Airport in Kent. It's been teaching new flyers since 1977, but of course, to most people, it's still best known from its time as the front line Battle of Britain RAF station during WWII, which the site still proudly commemorates to this day. Indeed, one element of taking your lessons that will strike you immediately is how long the runway is - and that's because it can accommodate modern commercial airliners. There's generally quite a bit of corporate and business jet traffic coming and going here, and indeed, as you take off you'll pass the line of resident and visiting planes, including Spitfires or even the latest Embraer! An expert and qualified flying instructor will be with you throughout each of your sessions, and will be taking you through exercise number three in the pilot's syllabus, where you learn to fly "straight and level" - which any seasoned pilot can tell you will sit long in the memory! Best of all, all of your lessons will be logged in your pilot's logbook, and will count towards your hours of learning required to obtain your PPL (Private Pilot's Licence). So for those with designs on mastering flying a plane, this package is the best place to begin your illustrious piloting career!
