What is a Flying Lesson?
Flight lessons are just like driving lessons but you'll have hours of training in a plane (at least 45 hours of flight), and instead of driving to get your driving licence you’ll be flying to get your Private Pilot’s Licence, or PPL.
You can just book a 30 minute or 60 minute taster to see if it’s for you and if you’d like to go all the way and obtain a licence (required to be a professional pilot), or you can enjoy a one-off experience of flying a plane. Lessons are as much about the pre-flight checks as they are for the time spent in the air amongst the clouds thousands of feet above the ground.
Flight tuition is and pilot lessons are given by fully qualified and licensed flight instructors from approved training organisations like the CAA. Thanks to their years of experience, they will be on hand with extensive and invaluable knowledge to anyone lucky enough to be given one of our gift vouchers as a gift or flying lessons booked by yourself for yourself to tick off the bucket list or live the dream of being a fully licensed pilot.
Set someone or yourself on the way to achieving a private pilot’s licence today at Flydays.co.uk. Remember to check the itinerary for the vouchers that you are browsing as some packages such as our helicopter rides are not classed as a lesson and you will simply be a passenger sightseeing rather than taking over the controls.
Flying Lessons are expensive, right?
The answer to this is both yes and no, and here’s why. Generally, there seems to be a misconception that learning how to fly and pilot training can be really expensive. This statement stands true if you are looking to become a fully qualified commercial pilot and fly with commercial airlines, but if you are looking to get your private licence then flying lessons costs can be much more affordable than you’d think.
Here at Flydays.co.uk, we believe that everyone should at least once, get into the cockpit of a light aircraft and feel the buzz of flying a plane. That’s why; thanks to our competitive pricing we are able to offer cheap lessons to suit all budgets and needs. If you are not looking at getting your licence, then a cheaper alternative would be to look at our passenger experiences. We have a wide range of experiences at affordable prices to meet anyone’s aviation dreams or ambitions.
What Flying Courses are available?
We have a plethora of lessons and training courses which consist of both fixed-wing and helicopter flying lessons. We offer various options in terms of packages. These consist of short 15-minute taster sessions, to the more challenging 30-minute lessons. Either of these options could be used as trial flying lessons.
If you were looking for something a little longer with a more hands-on approach, why not try our 60-minute lessons or our tactical helicopter experience. We also have lessons where the time spent in the air can be counted towards obtaining a private pilot’s license.
Are there any Flying Schools near me?
We have a large selection of flight schools, training centres, airfields and aerodromes across the UK. We have flying lessons in Essex through to flying lessons in Newcastle.
