What can I expect on the day

Get a head for heights with these fun tasters at a flight school near you, with these best value nationwide deals! If you’re looking for a short, but sweet taster lesson in aeronautics, then we’ve got a flying school to suit you that offers a 15 to 20 minute blast that will delight anyone who has never flown in a private plane before.

Each session starts with a safety briefing and your instructor will demonstrate the controls. Every flying school we use is CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) approved, so you can be guaranteed the best quality tuition no matter where your flight path takes you. The instructor will also remain with you for the duration of your flying time, navigating the tricky take-off and landing sections as well as giving you guidance and advice during your time as captain.

All lessons take place in a two-seater light aircraft. The aircraft you’ll use during your flight varies depending on the school you attend, but the sort of the planes you might end up sitting in are a Cessna 152 or a Piper, both of which are ideally suited to educational and flight training courses and are used at schools throughout the world, whilst at Oxfordshire it is actually a powered glider you'll be using.

As you’ll be sitting up front with one of the school’s instructor pilots, you really get a feel for what flying is all about. You’ll also get the chance for some high-altitude sightseeing at the start and end of the flight, where the instructor will take charge, but once you’re at cruising altitude then it’s your turn to take the controls and, albeit briefly, become a real pilot!

Each school offers an individual flying experience, so you could take wing over an iconic landmark, an area of beautiful countryside, or even potentially negotiate a flight over your house, but one things for sure, each school will tailor the flight to the pupil. Some schools also present you with a certificate to recognise your aerial achievement at the end of your flying experience.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be an airborne adventurer, then some quality time at a friendly flight school is the experience for you. Alternatively, if you think you’d like more airtime than a taster lesson provides, we’ve got a whole range of other flying lessons on offer with flying schools around the UK.

The flight was all I expected.The people at Wickenby were very helpful and welcoming.
The pilot 'Steve' was very informative and made the whole flight experience most enjoyable.
Many thanks.

The experience itself was brilliant however it was disappointing that I had to travel such a long distance to the airfield. When my partner booked the experience he followed a link to 'Intotheblue' via the website of our local airfield. He therefore assumed that we could redeem the experience at our local airfield - WRONG! When we redeemed the voucher code we found that the experience was not offered at our local airfield & I had to travel considerably further to the nearest airfield that was participating. All a bit misleading really. I would certainly recommend the experience itself but would not recommend booking it through Intotheblue - sorry
No, I do not recommend this product.

Hi Helen, we're glad to hear you enjoyed your flight. We aim to include as many locations as possible for our flying vouchers and we're sorry that your local flying school wasn't included.
