What Can I Expect
Take your flying lesson with Bristol & Wessex Aeroplane Club and you'll be taxiing to the runway at the Bristol International Airport! There's something quite exciting about getting airborne in a small aircraft at a proper commercial airport - it's all about the aerial activity, a busy air traffic control and you in amongst those Boeings and Airbuses departing for foreign shores!
During your lesson you will be flying out of a small friendly aeroplane club that is based at Bristol Flying School on the Biz Jet apron of Bristol Airport. This Aeroplane Club has been in existence since 1927 and prides itself on its club atmosphere (it's owned by pilots for pilots), with lots of social events and fly-outs as well as the consistent high standards of flight lesson tuition on offer too.
As well as the bustling atmosphere, what we love about this flying club is the fact that every lesson is tailored to you. so if you live in Bristol, there's every chance the flight path you take will be able to include cruising over you house or workplace for that extra little special touch to your experience. Similarly, if you've always dreamed of flying a plane, the lesson will be orientated to be more hands on to maximise your learning time in the cockpit.
