What can I expect on the day
Treat them to flying lessons in Cardiff! Do you know someone who would revel in a trial flight out of Cardiff International Airport in Wales? Think someone you love would cherish spending 30, 40 or 60 minutes in an aeroplane above the skies of Glamorgan? Then you're on the right page, with an excellent range of flight options available too.
Cardiff Airport is the only one in the whole of Wales operating scheduled flights to international destinations, so on your lesson you can expect lots of flying action with every type of plane landing and taking off from CWL (that's the IATA airport code, Welsh aviation fact fans!). With a 2,392m long asphalt runway capable of welcoming large aircraft, you will be sitting pretty in your Piper light aircraft in amongst the multi-jet engined boys!
This Cardiff base offers lessons all year round and is one of several centres for this countrywide flying school, which means there is a fleet of 30 aircraft in total at their disposition across the business, many very experienced instructor pilots and an excellent operational set up. Based in the White Building on the quieter south side of the airport, you will see you are amongst executive charter companies and general aviation services.
The full time team here includes Chief Flying Instructor Steve Williams and Operations Manager Phil Keatley, alongside a crew of fully qualified flying tutors, including Stewart Shelly who took his first lesson in flying here at Cardiff and is now teaching budding pilots at the same school. He chose this centre as 'it has first class aircraft to match the industry-renowned first-rate training', so we think you will enjoy your introduction to flying here too.
There is plenty of choice when it comes to flying lessons at Cardiff Airport (or Maes Awyr Caerdydd in Welsh), as we are offering the full range of flights in a two or a four seater light aircraft. Once you have taken off and cleared the restricted Cardiff airspace, your lesson starts proper as it's time to stop staring open-mouthed at the amazing views out of South Wales from the cockpit and get down to the serious business of trying out flying with you at the controls.
