Looking for the perfect gift as a special present, business incentive or just for you? Then why not see Dorset and its spectacular surroundings from the ultimate vantage point whilst at the controls of an aeroplane.
And if you’re making a day of it, your friends and family can have a coffee and cake in our coffee shop whilst you’re flying.
Even airline pilots remember that first time they took controls of an aeroplane. It’s a moment of a lifetime. Flying is exciting and a wonderful experience to give someone as a gift. Let your friend, colleague of loved one live the dream!
Whether you want to progress towards attaining a flying licence or just get a taste of flying, a Gift Voucher for a trial flying lesson is the right first step.
The gift vouchers are presented in a gift wallet, and are dispatched in a plain envelope to maintain the element of surprise.
Your Flight Instructor will give you a pre-flight briefing on how the aeroplane controls work and how the aircraft operates. Once airborne we aim to give you as much "hands on" flight time as possible – with time to take any photos. And when you’re back on terra firma you’ll receive a certificate of flying achievement to show to your friends and family.
As well as being taught how to fly the aeroplane, trial lessons are a great opportunity to take in some of the best scenery available in the UK. Depending on flight duration, this can include the Jurassic Coast, the Isle of Wight, The Needles, Corfe Castle, Old Harry Rocks and Hurst Castle – so don’t forget your camera!
30 or 60 minute trial lessons are very popular, but if you’re feeling more adventurous then why not try the ‘Land-away’ lesson? This involves flying to another airfield for a coffee and short turn-around before returning back to Bournemouth Airport; a perfect option if two people want a taste of flying.
Remember: the time taken on a trial lesson flight can count towards attaining a Private Pilot’s Licence. Booking a trial lesson is easy, from our online shop or by contacting us directly on: 01202 582 181
