One for the ultimate adrenaline junkies, this flying experience hits every bucket list as you not only get to pilot a light aircraft, but you get to observe someone else taking the controls too!
Available at 12 UK venues, the Aeroplane Pilot Land Away Double Flying lesson is the perfect combination to be a member of the crew, as a lookout and then as a pilot. You and a friend will have a 24-30 minute session of flight time under the instruction of a qualified instructor. You’ll also get 24-30 minute opportunity to observe from the rear of the aircraft.
The take off and landing will happen from different locations (dependant on weather and airfield conditions) with anytime spent behind the control counting towards a Private Pilot’s license.
On landing you will be presented with a completion certificate and the chance to take photos of you next to the aircraft for full social media bragging rights!

Newcastle, Gloucestershire, Fairoaks, Blackbushe, Cumbernauld, Nottingham & Waterford.
