What can I expect on the day

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.

AWESOME. Air Navigation and Trading co. Blackpool are brilliant. From the minute I walked in I was made to feel welcome. Any fears I had about having a flying lesson quickly disappeared. Michael my instructor was so good. He made me feel confident and was an excellent tutor. I took the controls knowing he was there if I got in trouble and his clear instructions made for a great experience. I flew over to the Lake District and back doing a circle of Blackpool Tower on my return. My husband was allowed to go in the back seat. My advise to anyone would be, do it!!! It was the best experience ever and left me feeling that I had achieved something amazing. Thank you to Michael and the receptionist at A.N.T. You are wonderful

This experience of a 'Flying Lesson along the immediate Fylde coast and Blackpool Tower' has been nine months in the making.

My son and family purchased the event as a birthday/ Christmas gift December 16,whilst I was indeed very pleased with the idea of it I couldn't help a nervous feeling surfacing from time to time which said ' do I really want this at my later age (77)'. In the event the answer was a resounding, yes.

My retirement 'job' DavidWalshawArt, has been extremely busy through Spring and Summer which gave me the opportunity to push back on the 'event', however Autumn beckoned and a date was set, 24 September.

Four days previous the sun was shining strongly and i realised how much I was looking forward to the date, strangely not a stressed fibre in the body, even though the forecast was not good. Come the day the threatened bad weather had been delayed and on our arrival at Blackpool Airport ( Air Navigation and Trading Company) the clouds were quite high.

The staff at AirNav were immediately welcoming, friendly and disarmingly personal, in a way that any nerves would straightaway dissipate. My instructor Russell introduced himself to me and all attendant family and then presented me with a set of headphones and attached mike. Five minutes later I was following him onto the tarmac making a beeline for a very attractive, substantial looking, single engine'Cessna'. Straight past it we walked to a less substantial looking, smaller single engine 'Cessna'. Many many photos later by family, and I climbed aboard with Russell into the very cosy twin seats.

Detailed, interesting, info on security,preflight checks and the simplistic principal of controls were explained and we then taxied to a runway and a three plane queue. Our turn and up we went to a1000 then 1500 feet. What was absolutely amazing was the fact with my hands also on the controls there were long periods when I was actually flying this plane,reasonably following instructions, nose up,nose down a bit, drop wing, level up. Russell's easy commentary, between instruction, on what we were looking at and the discreet way he took back control, made for an absolutely great experience.

Once round the Tower and we were homing in on the runway, down we went, taxied to the hanger. Job done. Just brilliant experience.
Yes, I recommend this product.
