Enjoy a trial flight at Nottingham City Airport! This well-placed airport is just 3.5 aerial miles south east of the city centre in the village of Tollerton. Being so close to the bustling city means you can enjoy the Nottingham landscape as you fly, looking down on all those buildings and landmarks as you go from your privileged seat in the cockpit.
The flight school here has an excellent reputation when it comes teaching. From trial flying to full Private Pilot's Licences, the centre takes its motto "Reputation Above All Else" very seriously. One recent graduate said: 'The team of instructors is extremely helpful, patient and understanding. The personal tuition I received at Nottingham Airport on a trial flight led me to train from my licence and I'll never forget my first solo flight - so exhilarating!'.
Having multiple training bases, this company has a very large and ever-expanding fleet of trainer aircraft, some of which are hangared and maintained in Nottingham under the skilful eye of Chief Engineer Stephen Coupe, which all means there is far less 'downtime' for pupils. Aircraft include two seater and four seater planes such as the Piper Tomahawk, the Cessna 172, the Piper Arrow and the Archer and all are ready to get airborne above the skies of Nottinghamshire.
Chief Flying Instructor in Nottingham is Martin Adamson, with his flight ops and engineering team, the set up is very professional and welcoming. A newly renovated reception area opened in spring 2013 offers dedicated facilities right next to the Tollerton control tower, including planning room, briefing rooms and even the 'Chocks Away' cafe bar.
Your trial flight at Nottingham City Airport will include a pre-flight safety briefing and your chosen flight time, with 30, 40 and 60 minute trial lessons in dual-controlled planes that carry two or four people currently being offered. The pilot will handle take off and landing, but once you've passed over the local built up areas and reached a decent altitude over Nottingham it's time to stop looking at the view and have a try at flying yourself! Once landed, presentation of a personalised certificate will round off your trial flight in Nottingham.
