A nice Experience located handily in Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire.
For anyone who’s ever dreamed of being a real aeroplane pilot, this high-flying experience is a must try. Based in East Yorkshire, the aerial adventure is designed to help budding flyers explore their first steps towards becoming a fully-fledged pilot. Start with refreshments and a briefing, before enjoying an informative tour of the aircraft hangars. After a tasty lunch, receive an introduction to the dynamics and controls of the aircraft before strapping in and heading to the skies for 20 minutes of hands-on, one-to-one flying time. Soak in sensational views of the ground below while gently guiding the aircraft through the clouds under the wing of a professional instructor and experience what it’s like to be a real private pilot.
