What can I expect on the day

Immerse yourself in the aviation world with this Aeroplane Pilot Day Course! This is a fantastic gift for any plane fan who has always wanted to be a pilot.

Your day behind the scenes at the aerodrome starts with a welcome from your instructor pilot over a cup of coffee or tea, Then, just as you would on the first day of a pilot's course, you listen to introductions and safety briefings before heading outside to the aeroplane sitting on the apron. You will each in turn enjoy a 15-20 minute flying lesson given on a one to one basis where you get to actually fly the plane and start to understand just how a light aircraft is flown.

There is then a break for lunch with your fellow aviation fans before the afternoon is spent touring the hangars to check out the stable of aircraft, as well as what goes on in maintenance and engineering. As you are guided around your host will talk about aircraft types with a few anecdotes and interesting facts thrown in too.

Your aeroplane pilot day course ends with a short talk explaining the process of getting your pilot's licence, the openings for commercial pilots and the aviation industry today. A truly fascinating day for anyone who has ever thought about taking up flying either a hobby or a career.
