What Can I Expect

Their motto is 'Learn to fly with the friendly experts' and that's what makes flying lessons in Surrey just that little bit memorable. Great fun with a great team! You'll be getting airborne over the Surrey skies with top notch tuition and plenty of 'hands on time' included too.

This Surrey-based flying school is offering 30 and 60-minute trial flights for you. All training is geared to you, so whether it's the very first time you’ll step aboard a light aircraft, or you've already had a trial flight before, you will love your time in the air.

Flights are usually operated by the club-owned Cessna 152s, well-known for being agile, robust and easy to fly (even if to you it all seems far too complicated at first glance!). The instructors at Blackbushe are all highly experienced and, if you’re keen, they will get you on the controls for the maximum amount of time during your lesson.

And for those of you who don't know Blackbushe Airport in Surrey, it has a very rich history. It played a huge part in WW2 as RAF Hartford Bridge, which meant the main A30 had to be closed, as it crossed the southern perimeter of the runway. Can you imagine the chaos that'd cause today? Post-war, Blackbushe welcomed the first commercial jet airliners of the 1950s.

Nowadays, Blackbushe is a small and friendly executive and private aviation airport, with good facilities and an excellent weather record, making it the perfect choice for flying lessons in Surrey. Buy a voucher for your 30 or 60-minute flight over Surrey online with us.

I enjoyed it, thank you. It was an experience. A bit shorter than i expected, but then the day was coming to an end and the light was fading.
