Flying Lessons. Take to the air & learn to fly

Get your wings with our selection of flying lessons! If you've ever dreamed of being a pilot or just want to have a go at the controls an aeroplane, you've come to the right place. Lessons in how to fly are a big part of our heritage, as we are the sister company to the people who were behind the world-famous Biggin Hill Airshows. With that sort of pedigree, it's no wonder we can boast one of the biggest and best value ranges of pilot schools the length and breadth of the UK.

You will be taking to the air in a modern light aircraft from a fully CAA registered flight school or training centre. Many use two seater aircraft such as the Cessna 152, whilst the most popular four-seater is the Piper Archer. Lessons in aircraft with four seats cost more, but it does mean you can usually invite someone to join you as a back seat passenger for your flight. Read more...

Flying lessons that don’t cost a fortune

Learning to fly isn't cheap and you may be wondering just how much flying lessons cost. Well, with our introductory flights, you can get airborne for less than you think. If a quick zip up into the sky in a Cessna suffices, then you can grab yourself a taster lesson, which could be something like this trial flying lesson video, for less than £60.

If you want more time to soar the skies there are introductory sessions that last anything from 20 minutes to a full hour. Whatever flight duration your choose, there will always be time for you to have a go at controlling the plane for yourself. And believe us, keeping the aircraft steady (known as 'straight and level' in aviation speak) whilst maintaining altitude isn't as easy as it sounds

Those budding aviators who really want to lift the lid on recreational flying in light aircraft should go for one of our longer flight packages. We’ve got the 'land away', where you take off from one airport, fly to another, land have a quick cuppa in the clubhouse and then head back to your plane for the return leg.

We also have pilot starter packs for anyone who fancies taking those first aviation steps to gaining the PPL (Private Pilots Licence). These sort of packages give you extra air miles with extended time in the air and options to take multiple lessons over several days, so you can really get an insight into what piloting a light aircraft is all about.

What happens on your flying lesson

After a plane walkaround on the apron, it’s into the cockpit for the pre-flight checks. This is when you verify that pulling back on the stick pushes the elevators up (and the plane into a climb) and inversely, pushing forwards forces the elevators down causing you to descend. Then check the pedals at your feet control the rudder, which helps you turn.  And then a check that moving the stick left or right lifts the ailerons left or right for you to make your turn. See, we told you this aviation lark wasn't easy!

After start up (at this point you'll understand why you're wearing an intercom headset - it can be pretty noisy in these small planes), it’s time to taxi to the runway. Once the delicate matter of taking off has been completed and you're out of your initial climb, it's your chance to shine on these flying lessons. As you utter those immortal words 'I have control' it will be you handling the plane.

We think it's amazing how sensitive the controls are in these light aircraft and if you've got the aviation bug, you might even be able to try and a couple of turns. In summary, no matter what your skill level or flight ambitions, here at Into The Blue we've got the package for you. Wherever you go in the UK, enjoy your fledging flight!
