Flying Experience Days: What greater feeling could there possibly be than that of having the wind beneath your wings, as the world disappears below? If you know someone who has spent their entire life dreaming of becoming a pilot, then now is the time to help them realise their dreams. And what better place to do so than over the stunning Mendip Hills and beautiful Somerset flats? As you arrive at Bristol airport, you’ll be welcomed by your friendly instructor and begin your flying experience with a safety briefing and an introduction to the equipment and controls you’ll be using. Then it’s time to hop into the pilot’s seat, and it’s chocks away! Once you have left the runway and are flying steadily through the air, your instructor will hand over the controls…then it’s your turn. For 60 breathtaking minutes, you’ll have the chance to fly your light aircraft over the magnificent Mendip Hills, serene Somerset Flats and view Cheddar Gorge from a whole new perspective…so don’t forget to take a moment to look out of the windows! As your flying lesson draws to a close, your expert instructor will take over and bring the plane safely in for landing. With your feet safely back on terra firma, you’re then free to relax and enjoy a beverage in the centre’s private licensed bar and restaurant. The perfect experience gift for any budding pilot, whatever their age – this 60 minute lesson is the thrill of a lifetime and is the first step towards living the dream.
