East Midlands Flying Experiences and Lessons

The East Midlands is perhaps an overlooked corner of the British Isles, but it is by no means without its charms and character that, in many ways, make it an undiscovered place to explore.

Home to the notable counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire, there's a pleasing mix of open countryside and forestry, low lying coastline and some stunning cities on offer in Nottingham and Leicester, which have been identified by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network as 'sufficiency-level world cities'.

And of course, at FlyDays, we believe there's only one way the East Midlands can be best enjoyed - from thousands of feet up in the air, on a vast selection of our exciting flying experiences and lessons for aviation enthusiasts of all ages and tastes.

Gliding High in the East Midlands

Flying in a glider is a very unique flying day to say the least. It is considered by many pilots to be the purest form of flight, and FlyDays affords you the opportunity 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.

This is also a fantastic flying experience for young aviation enthusiasts to enjoy, as some of our Gliding days are suitable for those aged 14 and up - it may even be the beginning to them embarking on a promising career or hobby in flight.

East Midlands Helicopter Rides

Why not 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 adrenaline rush but in all the excitement allows the passenger time to also enjoy the stunning views.

And with your on-board pilot acting as your tour guide on many of our Helicopter Ride packages, you can be sure you won't miss a single sight or landmark on offer.

Hot Air Ballooning in the East Midlands

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.

Taking to the basket of a balloon in the East Midlands is definitely a must-tick bucket list item. Float softly with your fellow passengers and enjoy the rolling scenery from a bird's eye perspective, as the sun gently rises or sets above the world below you.

Some of our balloon flights even offer a nice glass of champagne with which to toast the flight once you land, making this the perfect surprise to celebrate an anniversary, Birthday or any other special occasion with.

Just Plane Crazy

We love aeroplanes here at FlyDays, and we've made sure that the East Midlands is well catered for with our range of Aeroplane Flying Lessons and Schools.

Our 30 and 60 Minute Flight Lessons are your opportunity to see what it's like being a pilot, taking the controls and flying a plane for the first time, and best of all, your experience here will also count towards that needed to obtain a Private Pilot's Licence from the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority).

Better still is our Aeroplane Pilot Land Away packages, a unique aeroplane day which allows you to be pilot, navigator and observer all on the same flight. We also offer this for groups of up to three to enjoy, so it's a day up in the air you and your friends or family can enjoy together.

Booking an East Midlands Flying Experience

Our FlyDays open gift vouchers can be put towards any of the East Midlands flying days and lessons you see listed above. Not only do they offer great flexibility for when you want to go, but they're perfect to surprise a loved one with or treat yourself whatever the occasion calls for.

Our Events calendars for all our experiences are regularly updated with the very latest availability direct from our suppliers, so if there’s a forthcoming event date you like the look of, you can book directly onto this using the calendar tool.
