What can I expect on the day

Take your flying lessons at Swansea Airport and you will be getting airborne over some of the prettiest coastal countryside we've ever seen! Based out of the airport at Fairwood Common on the Gower Peninsula, this small and very welcoming club is a great place to fly from.

This fully licenced flying school offers a variety of lessons from Swansea. The club has a modern fleet of light planes, including five two seater Piper PA 38 Tomahawks and a four seater Piper PA28 Cherokee and you have the choice of a 30 or 60 minute flight in either sort of aeroplane. Worth noting, if you have a four seat voucher, you can have up to two people to join you as passengers, so you can invite those who bought the voucher to join you - and they will absolutely love it.

So where will you be flying on your lesson? Well, from Swansea there is a myriad of flight paths possible. What we love about this club is that they'll take the time to discuss where you go before you're even in the plane and when asked, most people immediately reply 'over my house' and then 'Caldey Island where I used to go as a child'. Routes also including Tenby, Swansea Bay, Mumbles and Llanelli can all be planned too, depending on weather and your flight duration.

Once you know where you're headed on your aerial sojourn from Swansea, it's time for the flying lesson to get underway as you book out and then follow your pilot instructor to the aircraft sitting on the apron. If you've never been in a small plane before, you might surprised to find you climb into the cockpit by stepping up on a special padded section of the wing next to the fuselage and the inside.

When settled and strapped in to your seat, your pilot will point out some of the most essential  dials and gauges in front of you, namely the vertical speed indicator, the direction indicator and the turn and slip indicator. What always amazes us with flying is that although it is complicated and full of  aeronautical theory, when you are at cruising altitude it all feels very comfortable, relaxed and even easy. Whether you sit back and relax and just enjoy the views, or you actually fancy having a go at taking the controls, you are sure to enjoy your first lesson in flying over Swansea.

So if you want a fun experience with fantastic views that are truly second to none, these flying lessons in Swansea are a great choice. You will enjoy an aerial voyage that leaves you informed and not bamboozled by the theories of flight, with the chance to see some of the very best parts of the Welsh coastline from the air - and maybe even your own home too!

I went to fly from Cambrian Flying Club at Swansea on Wednesday. Brilliant. The staff very friendly and the instructor excellent, I am hopefully making good pals with him. Have had hands on before and with some knowledge of flight this was excellent. I shall return. Regards, Bill Graham.

The instructor was so informative and funny, and made us relax. It was an amazing experience, one not ever to be forgotten. It was for my daughters 18th birthday, which we all will remember. Many thanks
