North East Flying Experiences and Lessons
The North East is an area of England that’s steeped in both cultural and historical significance, not least because of the area’s key significance with our country’s industrial heritage and prominence. Now in the 21st century, it is slowly growing into an area of real potential, promise and exciting regeneration.
It is this mix of the historical and contemporary that means it is one of the most fascinating places in all the British Isles to explore from the air. And at FlyDays, we offer a fantastic range of flying experiences and lessons that allow you to witness the North East at its very best potential - from thousands of feet up in the air.
From Northumberland to South Yorkshire, our flying experiences let you feel as free as a bird. So take flight in a fixed wing aeroplane, helicopter, microlight or hot air balloon, and head skywards in the North East of England for the thrill of a lifetime.
We’ve a huge selection of fantastic flying experience days and lessons for North East based flying enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy, and we’re confident that you’ll find something to make you smile and hopefully create great memories for years to come.
Two Wings, Three Ways
Our Aeroplane Pilot Land Away Triple Flights - available in packages for up to three people - has to be the ultimate flying experience. This is your chance to enjoy three flights and be a pilot, navigator and observer - a truly immersive aviation experience.
Of course, safety is paramount and all activities are under the watchful eye, and guidance, of a professional flying instructor throughout the course of your time in the air.
And with the option to bring up to three along, this even makes for a fantastic group booking, particularly for Corporate bookings as a team building exercise. You can contact our customer service team, who will be happy to help you discuss your needs and requirements.
Rocketing Rotor Blades
If a vertical lift-off is more to your liking, then FlyDays.co.uk has a wide variety of fantastic helicopter experiences to choose from. Our Helicopter Rides will get you flying over some of the North East’s most famous landmarks.
These include St James’ Park football stadium, the home of the Toon Army, Newcastle United F.C, the bustling Metro Centre and, of course, the iconic landmark that is the Angel of the North. Plus, your on-board pilot will be your guide to ensure you don’t miss a sight.
Other experiences include a Helicopter Buzz for Two, the perfect package to enjoy the delights of the North East from high above with a friend, family member or loved one, whatever the special occasion may be - Christmas, birthdays or even an anniversary.
Hot Air Borne
A balloon flight is utterly mesmerising. You’ll be enchanted, from the moment you climb into the basket and hear the burners come to life, to ascending upwards and then serenely drifting over the countryside such as the stunning Northumberland National Park far below.
Now’s your chance to enjoy a balloon experience in the North East courtesy of FlyDays.co.uk with our magical sunrise Champagne Balloon Flight. You won’t mind getting out of bed early for this once in a lifetime experience.
You can even help inflate the balloon before take off, and best of all you get to toast the flight with a glass of champagne once you’ve landed back at base, to make it an even more special experience.
Don’t be fooled, Microlights might be small by nature and not engine powered like other fixed wing aircraft, but they punch above their weight for providing airborne thrills.
If you’ve never experienced one before, then our Introductory Microlight Flying Lesson for one is perfect for novices. It’s also a great flying day for junior aviators to enjoy, as the minimum age limit for many of our Microlight packages is 14 years old and up.
With only gravitational forces and your control of these keeping it airborne, such is the adrenaline rush you’ll be begging to head skywards again. In fact, flying a Microlight is as close to replicating the flight of a bird as you could hope for.
