Embark on an aerial adventure with a 30 minute light aircraft experience in Dorset. Climb aboard a dual-controlled two-seater Cessna 150 training plane with a fully qualified instructor after a talk on fundamental flight procedures and a full safety briefing. Enjoy beautiful countryside views and experience the capabilities of this zippy craft – during the flight (at the discretion of the pilot), the controls may be passed over for the chance to get a real feel for piloting a plane.
