What is a Trial Lesson?
Trial lessons are exactly as their name suggests. It is an opportunity for anyone who has ever wondered what it is like to fly, to have a go, and pilot a 2 seat light aircraft in the skies above Belton, Scunthorp, Goole and the Humber Bridge. For most people it’s a one off experience, for others it’s the start of an exciting new hobby (or occasionally a career change). Whatever your expectations, we think the trial lesson is the way to kick things off. It’s an opportunity to see whether flying really is for you, meet our instructors and see them in their working environment. Additionally, you can use the aero club facilities and maybe meet some of the pilots who fly from the airfield.
Trial Lesson Vouchers
You can purchase a trial lesson voucher for either a 30 minute lesson for £95.00 (incVAT) or a 60 minute lesson for £160.00 (inc VAT)in a 2 seat aircraft or a gyrocopter. A 4 seat aircraft is also available for £110.00 for 30 minutes and £180.00 for 60 minutes. Vouchers are valid for 6 months from the date of purchase to allow for the typically British weather. We must stress that you should not wait until the end of the validity period of the voucher before you make your booking because we cannot offer refunds beyond the expiry date.
We would also kindly suggest that anyone weighing over 15 stone, or in excess of 6 feet tall inform us when purchasing the voucher and booking the flight, as they will find it more comfortable to use a larger 4 seater aircraft.
To purchase a voucher contact the school on 01 427 872 034 or pay us a visit ( not available Mondays). We will be please to answer any questions you may have.
