What can I expect on the day

With these flying lessons from Prestwick there’s the added bonus of experiencing some of the best scenery in Scotland whilst you fly! That’s because Prestwick Airport, where this flying school is based, is right on the edge of the Firth of Clyde, the gateway to the Isles of Arran, Bute and Ailsa Craig.  Ailsa Craig is now a bird sanctuary, but previously famous for producing the blue granite to make curling stones.

As soon as you take off from the Prestwick Flight Centre you’ll be treated to amazing views along the Ayrshire coastline with Ayr, Prestwick and Troon beaches. To the south west, there’s the famous Turnberry Hotel and golf course, Culzean Castle, whilst to the north west it’s Ardrossan, West Kilbride, Bute and the Isle of Arran.

Stunning scenery aside, let’s not forget you’re here to have a flying lesson! Prestwick is a great place for lessons, as it’s an international airport with all the latest radar cover and you very seldom have to wait for take off clearance or hold on your return to the airport. This Prestwick flying school is based about a mile from the main airport terminal building, right next to the control tower. Being fully CAA and EASA approved, this operator can take you from a first trial lesson around Prestwick, to confident licence holder flying all over Ayrshire and beyond.

The Prestwick Flight Centre has a fleet of aeroplanes including two seater Cessnas and a Katana, plus four seater Piper PA28s and a Grumman AA5A. All are renowned training aircraft, used in flight schools the world over. Easy to fly, rugged and reliable, you will be amazed at how soon after taking off from Prestwick you will be given the controls by your friendly, experienced instructor. It is quite a unique sensation flying the plane a few thousand feet above the beautiful Ayrshire coast and countryside.

Prior to your flight, you will be given a short briefing by your instructor, either in the plane or in the briefing room at the centre. This is when you can let your instructor know your preferences as to where you’d like to go and what to see. If you live near Prestwick, the instructor can easily take you over and view your house from the air.

With a pilot’s shop, engineering facilities and briefing rooms on site, flying lessons at this Prestwick school are sure to get your off to a flying start. There is a full range of flight durations on offer in both two and four seat aircraft, so if you fancy having a go at piloting a plane and seeing some gorgeous scenery as you fly, Prestwick is a brilliant choice.
