We really like this Driving Experiences Experience in Stourbridge, West Midlands.
Take to the clouds for a breathtaking 30 minute light aircraft flight in South Staffordshire, the perfect experience for any budding aerial adventurer. Kick off with a full safety briefing before boarding a Cessna 152 aircraft with a seasoned instructor to get ready for take-off. Once in position, ascend skyward and when at a steady altitude, marvel at the astounding panoramic views of the countryside as the pilot effortlessly guides the Cessna across the sky. During the flight, take over the reins and go for a spin to experience the unrivalled joys of aviation from a first-hand perspective. For those who catch the flying bug, this flight time actually counts towards a Private Pilot’s Licence!
