Flying in a glider is like nothing else. It is considered by many pilots to be the purest form of flight and FlyDays.co.uk is giving you the chance to head skywards for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. With just the birds (and your pilot!) for company, you'll be lifted higher and higher by the warm thermals as the world below passes quietly by. It is a truly mesmerising experience and one that you won't want to end, but what goes up must come down and your pilot will bring you gently back to earth.
See the East Midlands from a unique perspective in a helicopter. Because a helicopter can hover it can give its occupants unrivalled views without moving as an aeroplane needs to. However, helicopters are also capable of fast speeds and soon you could be zooming at over 120mph across Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire or the surrounding areas. A helicopter flight experience provides a full-on adrenalin rush but in all the excitement take time to also enjoy the stunning views.
Humans first took to the skies in hot air balloons more than 200 years ago. Their sheer size, majesty and gracefulness still make them one of the most relaxing ways to be airborne. FlyDays.co.uk is now proud to offer balloon flights in the East Midlands region. Float softly with your fellow passengers and enjoy the rolling scenery from a bird’s eye perspective.
FlyDays.co.uk loves aeroplanes and has made sure that the East Midlands is well catered for with its flying experiences, even allowing you to take the controls with a flying lesson. This is your opportunity to see what it’s like being a pilot and could count as the first steps towards a Private Pilot's Licence.
Microlights are small by nature but provide thrills that punch above their weight. There's arguably no other way to have more fun in the air than in a microlight, plus there's also the chance to take the controls. We're pretty sure you'll be bitten by the micro lighting bug and soon be back for more.
