Try your hand at this brand new flying lesson experience from Glasgow International Airport!

This amazing flight experience allows the budding pilot in you to take the controls of a light aircraft for a flying lesson at Glasgow International Airport. 

After checking in at the flight school in Glasgow there is a safety briefing and familiarisation of the aircraft. Your instructor who will explain all aspects of the flight including the effects of controls and how an aeroplane flies. On-board, you’ll complete pre-flight checks and your instructor will start the plane and take off.

Once at cruising altitude you’ll take control of the aircraft. Under the supervision of the instructor you’ll first learn how to fly ‘straight and level’ before increasingly putting the plane though manoeuvres including, turning, climbing and descending.

You’ll get amazing panoramic views of the area including local towns, railways, the motorway and landscape as you fly past. Then you will come into land at a different airport, for landing the instructor will take the controls. Once safely on the ground you will swap the front seat for the rear seat and the other participant will ride up front. On the return leg they get the same experience flying the plane.

All in all you each participant will be ‘up front’ for 30 minutes each. The total experience lasts around 90 minutes in the plane.

If you decide you’ve got the flying bug then this flight can count towards getting your private pilots license!

This trip is a truly fabulous experience for anyone of any age and also a perfect introduction to flying for those who have always wanted to try flying an aeroplane.
