Flying Lessons and Experiences in Wales
Wales is the ideal location for a perfect flying experience. It offers an array of stunning scenery to enjoy from the air, including mountains, deep valleys, rugged coastlines, breath-taking beaches, historic sites, picturesque villages, wild forests and waterfalls…the list goes on and on!
And at FlyDays, we’re confident that whether you’re visiting Wales or you’re a local with a taste for all things airborne, we’ve got a flying lesson or experience with your name on it for you to enjoy and create some very special - and yes, lush - memories from. Read on to discover just what we have on offer for you…
Learning to Fly a Plane in Wales
What springs to mind when you think of Wales? The beautiful National Parks of the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia? Majestic mountains and sweeping valleys? There are few better ways to explore these stunning corners of the country than from many thousands of feet up in the air.
In fact, if you’ve always had an itching ambition to learn how to fly a fixed wing aircraft like an aeroplane for yourself, then our variety of Aeroplane Flying Lesson packages are just what you may be looking for.
Under the guidance of a CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) qualified instructor, you’ll get the opportunity to learn and master, over a 30 or 60 minute lesson, the basics of piloting and taking the controls on a two-seater aeroplane.
Best of all, however long your lesson is that you choose, it also counts towards the experience needed to obtain your Private Pilot’s Licence, so who knows? It could well be investment in a promising future aviation hobby or career.
Choppers Over the Valleys
With the ability to fly and land just about anywhere - whether it’s the golden sands of the beaches of Swansea, or up over the most northerly point of Wales in Anglesey, our selection of Helicopter Rides offer endless possibilities for your next flying day.
A helicopter experience is a great way to take some striking photographs of the Welsh landscape. Few other parts of the UK can match the diversity of majestic backdrops that Wales has to offer. To do it justice, FlyDays.co.uk is proud to offer a range of helicopter experiences from various locations which fly over a wide selection of settings.
Some of our Helicopter Rides are also available for two to enjoy and ‘cwtch up’ on. Whether it’s a romantic 6 mile Blue Skies Helicopter Flight for Valentine’s Day or a special anniversary, or maybe a 12 Mile Themed Helicopter Flight for a milestone Birthday surprise, there are many wonderful memories to be created and shared.
Where Can I Go on a Flying Day or Experience from in Wales?
It will come as no surprise to tell you that two of our most popular venues for flying days and experiences are in good proximity to Wales’ two foremost cities - its capital, Cardiff, and also Swansea. The latter’s airport is also well located with access to the stunning Gower Park, a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Further north in the country, there’s the opportunity to get airborne over the Snowdonia National Park, with a range of exciting flying lessons available at Caernarfon Airport, which is also home to the Airworld Aviation Museum, whilst nestled in Pembrokeshire is the former RAF World War II base of Haverfordwest Airport.
