Feel the buzz in a light aircraft when you take your flying lesson from Norwich Airport - a busy International airport with scheduled and charter flights arriving and departing year round. With the IATA code NIA, Norwich International boasts a 1841 metre-long runway and a fully-equipped terminal building. All set in over 280 hectares, with flight operations employing over 200 staff, you'll love the proper 'airport feel' to these experiences.
Your flight training school is based in the 'Aviation Centre' at the airport and is owned and operated by highly experienced pilots Kevin Filby and Ian Anderson. The centre offers in-house CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) examiners and there is a well-equipped fleet of aeroplanes.
The centre has two Piper PA28 Warrior II light aircraft for flight training and both have the latest avionics systems in the cockpits, including the Garmin GPS moving map display and a transponder - both highly-regarded navigation tools. The whole airfield has full radar coverage to co-ordinate all the aerial movements at this busy airport just over two miles from Norwich.
We are offering a 60 minute flight with this Norwich flying training school and, despite the controlled airspace, you can pretty much choose where you'd like to fly, so you can take in an aerial view of the Norfolk Broads, head over the nearby north Norfolk coast, or even fly over your own house!
A flying lesson at Norwich Airport is great value for money with the added bonus of being able to invite a passenger along to observe your lesson at this bustling International Airport. More breathtaking flying experiences can be found on IntotheBlue's main
