About the experience

Fly in the footsteps of the birth of commercial flying as you take a lesson at Stapleford Airfield. Nestled in the heart of Essex, not only does this airfield boast superb facilities for those accompanying you on your lesson, but a wealth of aviation history to explore. Originally opening in the 1930s it witnessed Britain change over night with the advent of WW2 where this aerodrome was requisitioned by the RAF. In the post war era, this airfield came into general aviation use and is now home to over 40 aircrafts. During this lesson you will earn how to make climbs, descents and turns as you get to grips with the controls with an expert pilot in a 2-seater Cessna 152. If you’re keen to work towards your Private Pilot Licence (PPL) this flight can count towards that, or if you want to have a more leisurely flight exploring the Romford area that's entirely possible too, as our pilots are happy to tailor each lesson to your individual needs. If you know someone who is keen to get flying through the skies, look no further with this ultimate home counties fight training experience perfect for beginners and experienced flyers alike.
