Take 'flight' to the coast as staycation beckons - News

  • Brits can still take to the skies and enjoy the beach this summer, thanks to an unusual combination
  • No need to jet off abroad when flying and seaside fun is available much closer to home
  • Coastal resorts with nearby airfields include Blackpool, Brighton and Weston-Super-Mare
  • Flying experiences start from just £32

Despite international travel restrictions there is still the opportunity for Brits to take to the skies AND enjoy time on the beach – albeit much closer to home.

Indeed, holidaymakers missing the thrill of Flying can now actually get inside the cockpit and Fly an Aeroplane at a range of Airfields around the UK, many of which are just a stone's throw from the beach.

And with a staycation now the only holiday option available this summer for many, urges thrill seekers to book early so their time in the sky becomes a reality.

Dan Jones, operations manager at, says: "Spending time with family and making lifelong memories is surely on the agenda for most people these coming months."

"A staycation is a great way to enjoy the great British seaside while also experiencing some adrenaline fuelled thrills."

Airfields near popular seaside resorts where flying experiences can be enjoyed include Blackpool, Brighton and Weston-Super-Mare – all locations that are braced for a bigger influx of holidaymakers who would normally be jetting off abroad.

Taking to the skies is also a lot cheaper than many people imagine, with a Helicopter Flight from a mere £32, a Microlight Flying Lesson starting from just £65, and a Gliding Experience from under £100.

Experiences booked now can also be enjoyed in the future with voucher validity typically up to 10 months.

Dan adds: "With our lengthy voucher validity, customers are able to work their chosen experience day around their coastal break, offering complete confidence and flexibility when purchasing their voucher."
