What Can I Expect

Find your wings at this Coventry flying school! All planes used are dual-controlled, so whether you fancy a lesson flying in a four or a two seater light aircraft, there are plenty of flight durations to choose from at this friendly centre just south east of Coventry city centre in the village of Baginton - and yes, you will be invited to take the controls.

With a small and dynamic team, this Coventry set up offers a close-knit flying school where instructors are most encouraging towards budding pilots and (very importantly) the kettle is always on.

When you arrive, you will greeted by the flying school duty manager at this Coventry base. It's a busy little place with staff carrying out various tasks including daily checks of the planes, opening up the hangar, wheeling the planes out to the apron, organising refueling, managing self-hire flight bookings, pilot training lessons and, of course, welcoming and looking after Into the Blue clients eager for their flying lesson out of Coventry Airport!

The enthusiastic team here reckons they have trained hundreds of pilots over the years, some of whom have gone on to become busy civil airline first officers and captains, whilst many just revel in the sheer pleasure of recreational aviation. Whatever your flying aims are, the teaching here at this school in Coventry is excellent and all instructor pilots are passionate about what they do and love nothing more than taking a 'newbie' up in a light plane for their maiden flight. So hop into the 'pilot in command' seat (that's the left hand one) and get ready for your first lesson in what flying over Coventry is all about.

There is a fleet of modern aircraft operating out of this Coventry flying school and for these 15-20, 30, 45 or 60 minute lessons, you have the choice of taking lessons in a two seat aircraft such as the high-wing Cessna 152, or you can go for a flying lesson in one of the four seat, low wing Cessna 172s this Coventry crew has in its fleet. As with all the flying schools we use, this one in Coventry is fully CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) registered for lessons.

A 30th Birthday present to remember. First class instructor, very friendly and helpful. 30 min flight and got to fly the plane the majority of the time which was an unexpected bonus. Would recommend to others 100%.

First class instructor, very friendly and helpful. I've previously taken a helicopter lesson elsewhere but found flying a plane a far, far better experience. Highly recommend this 1hr flight. Wife also came with me!

This was a a Christmas gift of a 15/20 minute flight in a Cessna 152. Almat Aviation at Coventry airport readily changed the flight at my request to 30 minutes in a Cessna 172 for an additional £55. I have a 172 on my home X-Plane 10 flight simulator, but have never flown for real. I have now. The whole experience was excellent, from the attitude and dedication of the Almat team, to the flight itself. They really do encourage you to fly the plane yourself from the left captains seat, including taking off and landing if they feel you are able. Heartily recommended.
