South West Flying Lessons and Experiences

One of the warmest places in all the British Isles, and a frequent destination for holidaymakers once the summer months arrive - helped in part, no doubt, by being surrounded by coastline - the South West of England is an incredibly popular area of the country.

There's always something new to discover, over its range of beaches, two National Parks and four UNESCO World Heritage sites on offer. Not to mention it being the home of Cornish pasties, cream teas, and quaint chocolate box villages.

And at FlyDays, we believe there's no better way to enjoy taking in this area of the UK's many landmarks and sights, than from our range of flying lessons and experiences we have available.

Beautiful Ballooning in the South West

With rolling hillsides that are the location for some instantly recognisable landmarks like Gold Hill in Shaftesbury, Dorset, or the famous Glastonbury Tor in Somerset, that meet rugged cliffs such as the Jurassic Coast overlooking the English Channel, the views that the South West offers are unlike any other in the world.

Our range of Hot Air Balloon Rides therefore, surely has to be one of the most relaxing ways to see them all? Running annually from April to October - so well timed for when the UK is in British Summer Time - some of our Balloon packages are even available for two to enjoy.

So who knows? At the same time you visit for a short romantic break to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or other special occasion, you can also book to go skywards on a beautiful warm summer’s morning or evening, with a glass of something bubbly to toast the flight with afterwards.

Taking Control on a Helicopter in the South West

Helicopters can fly just about anywhere, in any direction possible. So it's little wonder that many people have it on their bucket list to learn to fly. Our Insight to Becoming a Helicopter Pilot for One package is thus the perfect introduction to learning to take control of a chopper in the South West.

Fancy letting a qualified pilot do all the hard work whilst thousands of feet up in the air? We can arrange that too, as you explore Devon, Avon, Gloucestershire, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire across our range of Helicopter Ride packages.

For example, the stunning St Ives Bay in Cornwall provides the perfect backdrop for a scenic helicopter tour. It has been voted one of the most beautiful bays in the world, so what better way to see it than from the air?

As well as being a great way to see the sights from a new perspective, a helicopter experience is also a fantastic adrenalin rush. Fly along rugged coastlines, over pristine beaches and charming villages, while taking photographs to remember your amazing trip.

Where Can I Take a Flying Experience from in the South West?

Covering seven counties in all, it will come as no surprise to learn that the range of locations and venues you can book to fly from in the South West are endless. Cornwall and Devon are easily explorable by the air from both Bodmin Airfield and Eaglescott Airfield respectively.

Perhaps you're closer to where the South West borders with the West Midlands? Gloucestershire Airport is thus ideally located between the historic city of Gloucester to the west and the Royal Spa town of Cheltenham to the east, meaning you can cover two regions of the UK from the air in one experience.

Terms and Conditions for Flying Experiences in the South West of England

Once you order a Flying Experiences in the South West of England voucher, it will be dispatched by one of our agency partners by e-voucher or by post, depending on which you choose when you checkout.

Vouchers are valid until the expiry date shown on your Voucher (typically 10-12 months).

In most cases, once you activate your voucher you will be sent the instructions to redeem the voucher directly with the airfield or operator. Because flying experiences (other than simulators) can only take place in suitable/ safe weather conditions, you must be prepared to be flexible on your activity date. If the agent or operator cancels your experience date, they will inform you as soon as possible and do their very best to offer an alternative date or location. Once a specific date has been booked, you will automatically become bound by the terms and conditions that the individual operator may have. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the descriptions contained on our Flying Experiences in the South West of England products are a true reflection of the experience, these do not form part of a contract. If on contacting the operator you feel that the activity taking place no longer accurately represents the activity purchased, the relevant agent will exchange the voucher or refund the purchase price.

If you have any more questions about Flying Experiences in the South West of England gift vouchers and experiences please contact us.
