What Can I Expect

Be part of this busy flight academy at Blackpool airport and get a taste of being a pilot at the great British seaside! This centre, just a five minute walk from the main airport terminal at Blackpool, prides itself on excellent standards of flying lessons from fully qualified instructors. with a range of flying lessons durations available.

With a full range of lesson durations available, you can choose 30 or 60 minutes of flying in a two seater Cessna 150, or you can opt for a 60 minute flight in a Piper PA28 with four seats, which means that within the weight limits, one or two spectators can join you in the air over Blackpool as rear seat passengers for the duration of your lesson.

On all of these flights you will get to see a slice of the classic Blackpool coastline from the sky, including the famous Golden Mile, the Pleasure Beach, the Pier jutting out into the sea and Blackpool Tower.  On the 60 minute flights you will then head further afield to perhaps Lancaster or the southern Lakes. At this flight academy it's not just about spotting the sights on the seafront, you will actually learn what it's like to fly a plane and, being a modern dual-controlled light aircraft, you'll find the challenge of having a go at flying fun and informative under the guidance of your fully-qualified instructor pilot.

Don't just take our word for it, one recently qualified pilot who was a student of the academy said: "After an hour's 'joyride' around Blackpool and beyond, I enjoyed my flight so much I decided to study for my private pilot's licence at the academy." and other club members firmly believe the immaculately maintained and presented fleet of aircraft here in Blackpool really makes this school stand out.

And it's no surprise this centre has such a good reputation, as it is Blackpool's original flight training academy. Opened in 1947, for flying lessons and charter work, the most popular aerial excursions were flights over Blackpool and even today the approach coming in to land at the airport will take your breath away, as you soar in over the water, the beach and the cliffs to come in for your landing on the tarmac runway.

Facilities at this flight academy in Blackpool airport are excellent and friends and family are invited to watch your airborne adventures from the warmth and comfort of the 'Airside' cafe and bar, affording good views of the apron and taxiways at the airport. Don't forget, on all flying lessons you will be able to take control at various points, including taxiing and mid-air over Blackpool to practice gentle ascents, descents and even turning. Another amazing flying lessons experience from IntotheBlue.

An amazing experience. I was a bit apprehensive when I received my voucher for this expetience, but needn’t have been. Guided by a very friendly instructor I took the controls and thoroughly enjoyed my flying experience. A fantastic birthday present - would definitely recommend

Great experience for anyone interested in the technicalities of flying an aircraft.

Our experience was taken at Blackpool airport where the family run team at air navgation trafing company warmly welcomed us.

My partner and sister (who bought me the experience) came along, and they were invited to join the flight, which was not at all expected. After some deliberation and encouragement, they decided to share the experience....this was a big deal for my 72 yr old sister! I extended the experience to a full hour to get as much enjoyment out of it as possible, it turned out to be worthwhile as the time flew by.

The instructor Mike was very calming and patient, explaining exactly what to do. I actually piloted the whole flight.. Including take off and landing ! Both my passengers thoroughly enjoyed the experience..... although they were eerily quiet during landing!

We all had a fantastic experience, my sister enjoyed her once in a lifetime experience and both her and I were both glad that she bit the bullet of adventure.

I shall be returning to Blackpool airport again to repeat the experience to learn even more about flying an aircraft.

I thoroughly recommend this experience, dont forget to involve adventurous family or friends, who will enjoy it too.
Yes, I recommend this product.
