What Can I Expect
Flying lessons Scotland out of Perth Airport! Once called Scone Aerodrome, this airport has an excellent reputation for providing top notch aircraft tuition as it is an official Flight Training Organisation, which means they train students to become professional pilots.
No commercial flights operate out of Perth, so this Scottish airfield is entirely dedicated to pilot training, flying lessons, maintenance and other aviation-related activities. So your lesson will take place in a world that's specifically set up for training, so you'll learn lots and have fun at the same time.
Your pilot will greet you on arrival at the training centre and run through the aircraft safety briefing. Once comfortable in the cockpit of the two or four seater trainer aircraft, it's time to wave off your family and friends watching and head up into the skies of Perth over farmland and Scotland's mountainous terrain on your very first lesson in flying.
From your privileged viewpoint in the cockpit, you'll love the views of The Fair City below, as the River Tay winds around the town and you spot Scone Palace, St John's Kirk and the famous Whisky mills. As well as sightseeing in this stunning part of Scotland, there will be plenty of time for your to have a go at flying the plane yourself when you pilot hands you the controls mid-way through the lesson.
We are offering 20, 30, 40 or 60 minute lessons from Perth Airport, taken in modern two or four seater training aircraft such as the Cessna 152 or Piper PA28. Based centrally, this airport is easy to get to from all over Scotland. For flying lessons with a difference, why not make a weekend of it and book into the Skylodge B&B on the airfield site? There's also the Aviator Cafe and Restaurant at the aerodrome to keep spectators fed and watered too.
And if you do decide to continue with your training, these flying lessons in Scotland can be added to your training pilot log book, so they count towards your flying hours when studying for your licence.
