What Can I Expect

Go flying out of Beverley Airfield, with a wide range of flying lessons taking you over the Yorkshire Wolds. This club actually owns and operates the airfield near Leven in Yorkshire, which means there are some great value flying lesson options for you to fly one-to-one with the instructor.

In existence since 1930, the flying club has been based at Beverley (Linley) Airfield since 1991. The Yorkshire Wolds and coast are easily visible once you're in the air, as are the likes of the River Humber, the wind farm and the two reservoirs that help give visual guidance for pilots coming in to land. There is one single grass runway here and it's nestled in amongst the patchwork of farming fields that surround this delightful spot, away from controlled airspace and restricted flight paths.

This Yorkshire-based club offers 30 and 60 minute flying lessons in two and four seater light aircraft at Beverley. If you opt for your flight in a four seater plane, you can invite up to two friends or family to join you to observe from the rear seats of the aircraft.

There is also a 90 minute land-away experience, where you fly on your lesson to another airfield in or around the Yorkshire area, You'll land and, after a short break, take off again for your return flight to the airfield at Beverley. On both the outward and return legs, you will practise navigation exercises to find your way to and from the airports and there's lots of time to fly the plane yourself - perfect for those who want a real insight into light aircraft flying and time to chat to your instructor.

On all experiences you will receive a pre-flight safety briefing and be shown around the cockpit controls. Beverley Airfield, near Leven, is a quiet and relaxed aerodrome, where you can be assured of excellent customer service during your flying lesson from staff who know this pretty Yorkshire airfield inside out.

I can honestly say that it was THE best experience I have ever had. Having been interested in Aviation in the last year or so and the constant YouTube watching of inside the cockpit, to be able to sit in the cockpit and fly the plane was amazing. I could not of asked for a better instructor/pilot. He was amazing (I forgot what his name was…sorry) he encouraged me to go for my PPL and I am seriously thinking about it. If this message does get back to Beverley Airfield, I would just like to say a massive thank you for the best experience ever! Arron Barker - flight experience date 07/11/21

This was a 50th Birthday gift from my Brother. Fantastic time, had a full 90 introduction to flying. the only bits I didn't do were take off and landing, (Obviously!),everything else was over to me so "hands on" time was maximised. I pretty much had free reign on were we flew, the instructor didn't mind, so started off heading out over the coast up to spurn point, then followed the coast line up to Whitby, there I turned inland and we did a couple of manoeuvres, like flying with the engine on idle, max climb rates, dives etc also introduced to trim level flight etc we headed into a light cloud bank so he could show me the effect it has on the plane. Really good first experience to flying.
