We really like this Driving Experiences Experience located handily in Lincoln, Lincolnshire.
Enjoy unique bird’s-eye views from a dual-controlled two-seater Cessna training plane. Kick off by meeting a fully qualified pilot for a safety briefing and discussion on elementary flying methods at the airfield in Lincolnshire, before hopping into the Cessna for a 60 minute aerial adventure. Once at altitude, get the chance to take charge of the piloting duties with the instructor on hand to offer tips and support throughout. Chocks away!
Wednesday to Sunday all year round. The venue is closed on Christmas Day. Weekends can get very busy, if you want a weekend date we recommend booking at least four weeks in advance.
Flying is weather dependent. It is essential that call you the venue after 8.30am on the morning of your experience for a weather check before setting out. If your flight is cancelled because of the weather, it will be re-booked for another date or time.
Your experience will last for about 80 minutes, including your 60 minute flight. Flight times are approximate and are the chocks-off to chocks-on duration.
Your briefing might be shared. Your flight will be held on a one-to-one basis with the instructor.
Spectators are welcome to watch you take off and land.
Wear flat-soled shoes. Sunglasses are recommended all year round.
Maximum weight is 18 stone. Minimum age is 14. Under 18’s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, who’ll be required to sign a disclaimer. Women in either the first or the last three months of pregancy can’t fly.
Your flying time can count towards a Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL). To qualify for a PPL you need 35 hours of dual control and 10 hours solo flying. If you have ever wanted to be a pilot, this is a great way to get started.
