What Can I Expect

Chocks away for some very special flight training in Coventry! This experience combines a flight in a plane with a flight in a helicopter, to give you double the airtime in two different aircraft. We call this the 'Plane and helicopter combo' and it's a winner!

Ideal for aviation fans who love helicopters and aeroplanes, these combined experiences give you twice the fun the air. Rotary flight is an amazing thing. We're not going to try and explain how helicopters actually get into the air and then manage to hover skilfully, but needless to say, the first time you experience it, it's pretty cool.

Same with the aeroplane. It's so much different to the big, commercial jet liners you normally board. These are much smaller light aircraft, with just enough room for the two of you up front. So forget extra leg room seats, you've got the best seats in the house - and the controls at your hands and feet too!

These combo experiences aren't just passenger flights; they're lessons. After a ground briefing, you'll receive in-flight tuition from your expert pilot instructor. And once the take off has been taken care of, you'll be asked if you fancy having a go at the controls. This is the moment you get to fly the aircraft. Keep a cool head, stay alert and you will be the Captain of the airways above Coventry in both a two seater helicopter and a two seater light aircraft.

What's more, Coventry Airport is a great location for your flights, as it's a well-established general and private aviation airport. Located just three miles south of the city centre, you'll get great urban and country views combined too. And if you want to make a day of it, make sure you pop into the Midland Air Museum which is also on site. It's filled with fascinating memorabilia and aircraft.

We think this flight training at Coventry is a real find. By offering both a helicopter and aeroplane flight all wrapped up into one voucher, you really do get to experience the best of both worlds when it comes to flying.
