What can I expect on the day

Savour the brilliant views on these scenic flying lessons over Cornwall! Flying out of Newquay airport means that within minutes of getting airborne, you will enjoy fabulous aerial views of the Cornish coast (and believe us, it's wonderful to see the beach and cliffs with a real bird's eye view!).

Based just a couple of miles north east of Cornwall's premier tourist resort of Newquay in Mawgan in Pydar, this airport was an USAF base right up until 2009. Since then, large commercial operations flying out of Cornwall have come and gone, but the lessons and general aviation side has continued to thrive - mainly because of the excellent training standards and the superb surroundings.

Indeed, who wouldn't want to take to the air in a Cessna or Piper light aircraft and immediately see the wonderful azure-blue sea and the waves lapping onto the golden, sandy beaches of Cornwall? Flying lessons are offered as 30, 40 or 50 minute sessions and in that time, you will see some truly amazing aerial sights and probably be surprised how far you can travel in that time.

On shorter routes, you can expect to cruise over the secluded and very lovely Watergate Bay and Mawgan Porth beaches, as well as getting a good look around the immediate area of the airport. On longer flights you might well head towards Cornwall's world-famous Eden Project for an exclusive aerial view of the iconic domes, Tintagel, Falmouth and the home of Cornish gastronomy in Padstow, even flying as far afield as St Ives and Looe, depending on the length of your lesson.

Not only do you get to see the sights from the air, on all flying lessons in Cornwall, you will also be invited to take over from your pilot instructor and fly the plane for a few minutes. The configuration of these aeroplanes means that you and your instructor sit side by side in the cockpit and it is dual control, so perfect for having your first lesson in flying, filled with the sunshine and sandy coves of Cornwall!

An outstanding experience. The staff were friendly and professional. Everyone was at hand to make myself and my family feel welcome. I was able to take control of the aircraft and practice level flying as well as making turns. I was also able to photograph spectacular views of the coastline and other locations, including the eden project. The pilot was calm and efficient and made me feel confident. Overall a truly fantastic experience.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great fun! We were given two vouchers for the three seater plane experience, so both got to go along for the ride whilst the other was flying. Amazing views along the Cornish coastline. Very easy to book with good availability and friendly staff.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Thank you so much to the team at FlyNQY: the entire experience was brilliant and from the first phone call to the farewells, all was calm and polite with an undercurrent of humour. This was not my first time in a plane but it was the first time in such a small one and I didn't want to come down! Would love to have the opportunity to take flying lessons one day! Definitely recommend the Newquay experience as flying along the coast line is fabulous and the feeling of escapism and space is wonderful. Special thanks to Marshall for flying on his afternoon off!
Yes, I recommend this product.
