What Can I Expect

If becoming a pilot is a real ambition, these great value pilot packs provide the perfect introduction to the wonderful world of aviation. With three lots of one hour lessons on offer, this deal will certainly put you on the right track to being a pilot. If you simply just want to 'have a go', we've got single flying lessons too.

As any pilot instructor will tell you, the more often you fly, the faster you will learn to become a pilot. Students going for their Private Pilot's Licence (or National Private Pilot's Licence for microlights, vintage aircraft etc) are advised to train at least once a week. With this trio of lessons available at pilot training schools around the country in traditional (PPL) or sports light aircraft/motorised gliders (NPPL), you'll be making an excellent start.

So, with a fully qualified instructor pilot by your side, will you become a flying ace? A certain dexterity is a must, along with patience and practice. Which is why these packs are so great, because you get to experience and engage in six take offs and landings, with your three individual lessons offered.

You will also make a start on the conventional syllabus for any student training to become a licensed pilot; namely co-ordinated constant heading, steady airspeed and stable altitude flight, as well as starting to practice climbs and descents. You may also get to try altitude turns to headings at 15 and 30 degrees, all with a constant speed and direction.

As well as the time in the air, you will have a taste of the other side of what it takes to become a fully trained pilot; the ground school. This is where, in a classroom at the pilot centre, you learn about meteorology, navigation, aerodynamics and aircraft systems. These essential facts and knowledge are needed to become a proficient pilot with sound judgement and good decision-making skills when flying.

Your first steps to becoming a pilot will be taken in a dual-controlled aircraft, typically something like a two seater Cessna or Flight Design CT lights sports plane. Our packages include your instruction, a log book and aircraft inspection checklist - in fact, everything you need to start your training to become a certified pilot to be able to hire and fly light aircraft. Imagine being able to take off and have a superb mini daytrip in a plane piloted by you!
