What Can I Expect
Reach for the skies with this range of Shoreham Airport flying lessons boasting Lancing College and the South Downs of Sussex as their stunning backdrop. This historic airport is in Shoreham by Sea right on the edge of the glorious West Sussex coastline. Also known as Brighton City Airport, Shoreham is just seven miles from the popular seaside town.
Lessons are with a freindly flight training school on the airfield here at Shoreham and flights are offered all year round using Piper aircraft. A lesson in either a two or four seater light aircraft offers the best way to savour the experience of flying yourself and if you opt for the four seater experience, a family member or friend can take up the back seat to enjoy your aerial fun with you and watch your lesson progress.
Unique to our Shoreham Airport flying school, we are offering Isle of Wight Adventure flights, where you'll take off from Shoreham, fly over the Sussex border and into Hampshire, before heading over the Solent to the Isle of Wight to land. You'll then have a break, with time to park up in the plane and head for a detailed ground briefing. Once back in the aeroplane, you'll take off from the island and navigate your way back to the airport at Shoreham, giving you two flying lessons in one. Of course, we also offer the more standard 30, 40 and 60 minute flights that also give you stunning shoreline views.
Whilst aspiring pilots are enjoying being airborne over West Sussex during their Shoreham Airport flying lessons, spectators left on the ground can also make the most of the excellent facilities around the school, including a visitor centre and the 'Fly In' and 'Airside 2' restaurant and cafe bars, from where there are excellent views of the main tarmac and two grass runways at the airport. IntotheBlue offers a quality selection of flying lessons at aero clubs throughout the UK.
