What Can I Expect

Calling all Londoners: prepare to take off on a flying lesson in London! Just 10 minutes from North London, well within the M25 and with easy access by public transport too, this flying school offers lessons based out of Elstree aerodrome in Hertfordshire. It really is the most convenient airfield for aspiring pilots in the capital and around the home counties too.

Before offering flight training, this group of aviators regularly took to the skies after they formed a flying group together in 2004. It was a natural progression to then offer flight training at this London-base. The staff and instructors at Elstree are super passionate and dedicated, with many interesting flying background stories. There are ex-military fast jet pilots, commercial airline pilots, aviation consultants, examiners and even flying instructors who teach pilots to become instructors. All this means you're in safe hands for your flying lessons out of Hertfordshire.

The planes hangared at this vibrant flight training club near London are the two seater Cessna 152 and four seater Piper PA28. The configuration inside the cockpit is side by side and all training planes are dual-controlled, so when it comes to you having your go at actually flying the plane there's no hot-seat mid-air changeover above the London skyline needed!

Both aircraft are renowned as being the best training light aircraft in the business, as they are rugged and easy for novices to get to grips with during flying lessons. London is obviously a pretty busy place when it comes to airspace and although this airfield is very near to London's city centre, it's far enough away to enjoy fewer restrictions, meaning you can maximise your flying time, rather than sitting in a take off queue on the runway.

There are several options for your flying lessons out of London. You can choose a flight in a two seater aircraft or a four seater plane. You can also choose between a 30 and a 60 minute lesson out of Elstree.

Fantastic experience and amazingly friendly staff. Very friendly staff and the instructor was very reassuring, supportive and funny. My boyfriend loved taking control of the flight and I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures of the amazing views from the back seat. Highly recommended.

I was bought a flying lesson by my wife for my birthday. It was a very enjoyable experience, booking was easy and intotheblue were excellent when I called to make an amendment when I decided to take my dad as well. The provider was very friendly, efficient and made the experience very relaxing and fun. I would recommend intotheblue and the provider Flight Training London to family and friends.

Fully enjoyed the experience, the customer service was great at every single contact, before on and after the day. Only downside was the flight was late, but that didn't matter as we enjoyed watching the planes taking off and landing.
