What can I expect on the day

Calling all Londoners for Flying Lessons in London! Just 10 minutes from North London, well within the M25 and with easy access by public transport too, this flying school offers lessons based out of Elstree aerodrome in Hertfordshire is really convenient for aspiring pilots in the capital and the home counties.

Chief Flying Instructor, founder and director of the school is Ivan Kurbanov, who has many thousands of hours of flying time, mostly instructing. He has a passion for flying and loves being up in the air on lessons and teaching others how to fly in the skies near London. Joining him is deputy CFI Nadir Ghoorbi who is also a highly experienced instructor pilot in light aircraft, alongside other fully qualified pilot instructors, most of whom work full time at London-based centre and will be only too pleased to take you up.

The planes hangared at this vibrant club in Hertfordshire are the two seater Cessna 152 and four seater Piper PA28. The configuration inside the cockpit is side by side and all the planes are dual-controlled, so when it comes to you having your go at actually flying the plane there's no hot-seat mid-air changeover above the London skyline needed!

Both aircraft are renowned as being the best training aeroplanes there are, as they are rugged and easy for novices to get to grips with during flying lessons. London is obviously a pretty busy place when it comes to airspace and although this airfield is very near to London's city centre, it's far enough away to enjoy fewer restrictions, meaning you can maximise your flying time, rather than sitting in a take off queue on the runway.

There are several options for your flying lessons training out of London. If you choose a flight in a two seater aircraft it will just be you and the instructor flying.

Fantastic experience and amazingly friendly staff. Very friendly staff and the instructor was very reassuring, supportive and funny. My boyfriend loved taking control of the flight and I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures of the amazing views from the back seat. Highly recommended.

I was bought a flying lesson by my wife for my birthday. It was a very enjoyable experience, booking was easy and intotheblue were excellent when I called to make an amendment when I decided to take my dad as well. The provider was very friendly, efficient and made the experience very relaxing and fun. I would recommend intotheblue and the provider Flight Training London to family and friends.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Fully enjoyed the experience, the customer service was great at every single contact, before on and after the day. Only downside was the flight was late, but that didn't matter as we enjoyed watching the planes taking off and landing.
