Ever thought about taking flying lessons in the South West? This lovely club boasts two grass runways on what was Treswithick Farm in Bodmin. Being in Cornwall it’s in the heart of the South West equidistant from both the north and south Cornish coastlines. And what’s more you can choose a lesson in a two or four seater dual control light aircraft for your first foray high into the blues skies of this wonderful part of the world.All lessons start with a sign in and registration at the clubhouse during which time you’ll be introduced to the pilot who’ll be getting you airborne. You are in good hands as this friendly flying club has been operating and taking pupils up for lessons over this south western corner of the country since 1972 and the team here prides itself on a friendly and informative approach to put all pupils at ease before taking off. For your flight experience in the south west you will be using one of the school’s Cessna high wing light aircraft that are renowned as being excellent training planes. Easy to fly nimble and agile it’s the General Aviation industry aeroplane of choice for lessons such as yours and for those training for their licence. After take off you might well head in a south westerly direction towards St Austell and Truro for superb views of these pretty Cornish tourist spots. Gaining more height you will see amazing views around the whole coastline and beyond to the Celtic Sea and the English Channel but as soon as you’re at altitude it’ll be less about gazing out of the cockpit and more about having a go at the controls of the Cessna but only if you want to. With spectacular coastal panoramas that only these flying lessons out of a south west location can offer these flights from Bodmin Airfield in Cornwall can’t be beaten. All you need to do now is decide whether you fancy a lesson in a two or four seater Cessna and for how long. And remember in a four seat you can usually invite someone to fly with you as an observer!
