Standard Trial Flying Lesson

The trial flying lesson lasts about one hour. This consists of meeting your instructor who will explain the exercise and show you round the aeroplane. You will be airborne for about thirty minutes, travelling over the Buckinghamshire countryside. You will do much of the flying yourself!

After returning to Denham, there will be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and you will be presented with a First Flight Certificate to remember the experience.

Thames Flypast

This lesson lasts an hour and a half. As with the shorter lesson your instructor will explain the structure of the lesson, which is tailored to the individual. The flight lasts an hour, which takes a route to the Chiltern Hills then South to the Thames, returning along the Thames past Henley and Marlow. This lesson is most suited to someone either with flying experience or interested in learning to fly.
