What Can I Expect

Four seater flying classes from airfields and airports nationwide! Bigger aircraft, more space inside the cockpit - and the possibility of inviting a guest to join you for your flight as an observer in the rear passenger seat.

These nationwide vouchers are also super flexible, as there's no need to choose the location now, the lucky person going on the flight can take their pick when they book their date.

We are offering a choice of 30 or 60-minute classes. The safety briefing is on top of that, so you get maximum time in the cockpit. As all trial flights use four-seater light aircraft, a friend or family member (at the discretion of the pilot on the day) can join you in the cabin and witness the memorable moment you take over the yoke at cruising altitude.

The flying instructor handles the tricky aspects of the flight, such as taxiing, takeoff and landing sequence. Then, once you're safely up in the air, it's over to you, as the student, to take control. Your instructor is in the seat next to you, giving you advice and tuition through the headphones, enabling you to fly the plane both safely and enjoyably.

It's useful to know that classes taken in four seaters have the advantage of greater weight limits. The maximum is 16 stone+, compared with 14 stone in two seater planes. If you fancy a smaller plane, we also recommend our 30-minute two-seater aircraft flying lessons at aero clubs nationwide.

For true aerial aficionados, these trial flights serve as an excellent grounding for continuing your studies in order to gain your Private Pilot Licence (PPL). The time spent during these classes counts towards your training pilot's log book.

With schools throughout the UK offering four-seater trial flights, the chance to fly in a larger light aircraft is not to be missed. Shop your 30 and 60-minute vouchers online now.


  • Flying classes are usually available on weekdays and weekends throughout the year, subject to favourable weather conditions
  • Although time slots are allocated please be aware that aircraft lessons are subject to a number of factors which may potentially cause delay to your scheduled time
  • Whilst every effort will be made to help keep you on time we ask for a degree of latitude owing to the nature of flying, air traffic delays and weather considerations
