What can I expect on the day

A small and friendly location for your flying lesson in Carlisle! Here's your chance to experience the exhilaration of flying at this family-run school and aeroclub based out of Carlisle Airport, with a trio of flight options available.

You will receive training in either a two seater Piper Tomahawk or a four seater Piper Warrior (depending on the voucher chosen) from expert instructors headed up by Chief Flying Instructor (CFI), examiner and owner Alan Rayson. Alan has clocked up many thousands of flying hours and loved his job teaching lessons so much, that he started this, his own school in Carlisle, with his wife Helen! 

So what can you expect on the big day? After a warm welcome from the operations team, you will have a brief introduction to the light aircraft you'll be flying in, before your designated lesson instructor here at Carlisle helps you into the cockpit before running through the pre-flight checks. Once ready for take off you'll taxi along the tarmac runway, increase the speed and before you know it, the nose lifts up and you're smoothly climbing with the Cumbrian countryside falling away beneath you.

All aircraft used are dual-controlled, so once stable you will take control under the supervision of your instructor. In normal weather conditions you cruise at around 2000ft over Carlisle and depending on the duration of your lesson, you might be flying over such sights such as Hadrian's Wall, the Solway Coast and the stunning Lake District.

In essence, we think that if you take your flying lessons at Carlisle it's a great airport to fly from and this school  is definitely one of the friendliest you'll find in the Cumbria area. At some point during your lesson you may even be lucky enough to meet a VIP member of the flying team here at Carlisle. His name is Farrokh and he loves feeling the wind beneath his wings and has completed hundreds of flying hours, but never at the controls…

This whole experience was excellent: the instructor was most helpful and went out of his way to ensure that our enjoyment of the flight was fully maximised. Would have no hesitation in returning at some time in the future.
The entire setup is truly professional.

Everything I hoped for and amazed that I was the one taxiing to the runway, taking off and really flying the plane. This is no mere passenger ride.
Yes, I recommend this product.
