Experience the exhilaration of flying at this family-run school and aeroclub in Cumbria offering lessons out of Carlisle airport, you will receive training in either a two seater Piper Tomahawk or a four seater Piper Warrior from expert instructors headed up by Chief Flying Instructor (CFI), examiner and owner Alan Rayson.
Following a brief introduction to the light aircraft you'll be flying in, your instructor will help you into the cockpit and get strapped in before running through the pre-flight checks. Once ready for take off you'll taxi along the tarmac runway, increase the speed and before you know it the nose lifts up and you're smoothly climbing with the Cumbrian countryside falling away beneath you.
All aircraft used are dual-controlled, so once stable you will take control under the supervision of your instructor. In normal weather conditions you cruise at around 2000ft and depending on flight duration, you can see sights such as Hadrian's Wall, the Solway Coast and the stunning Lake District from your privileged aerial viewpoint. If you choose the four seater flying options you can also take someone with you to enjoy your lesson too.
