Our two seater aircraft have dual controls - where you sit side by side with the pilot in a spacious, modern, and comfortable cockpit. You will have the opportunity to take to the controls under the guidance of an experienced pilot. Please note there is a lead time for this experience.
Start your day by coming in to the Flying School and meeting the operations team. We'll ask you to fill out a couple of forms. We'll then introduce you to your pilot and he'll give you a briefing on safety, the aircraft and its controls, and ask you how much time you would like to have "hands on" at the controls as well as choose the area you want to fly over. After cruising around at 2000ft you'll return to base and watch your pilot execute a smooth landing back at Compton. Use this opportunity to take a few photographs, and then finish the experience off by receiving a certificate, to prove to your friends and family that you have done it!
Because we own and operate the whole airfield here at Compton - we can offer you some of the best prices in the South of England. Why not make a day of it and book a table for lunch or afternoon tea? Uniquely, friends and family can join in the whole experience, from listening in on the briefing to watching the take off and landing from the runway terrace. Just call us if you have any requests and we'll tailor make the day for you. We also have a great selection of gifts in our on-site shop from cufflinks to vintage key rings and "Biggles Bears" that you can purchase in advance or on the day you book the flight.
