Trial Flying Lesson for 1 person + observer – Cumbernauld Airport (4 seat)
- Take the controls of a light aircraft and experience the thrill of flying
- Receive expert tuition from your qualified instructor
- Can be used as qualifying time towards your flying licence
Welcome aboard this amazing trial flying lesson from Cumbernauld Airport. This experience offers the thrill of actually flying a light aircraft over Scotland!
First, there is a 20 minute safety briefing and familiarisation of the aircraft. You’ll be asked if there is anything you want to see specifically in the area for a fly-past as part of your experience. Then you are good to go on your 30 flight. Onboard, your instructor will do pre-flight checks, start the plane, taxi to the runway and take off.
Once in the air, the plane will climb to around 3000 feet at around 120mph. Once at cruising altitude you’ll be offered the opportunity to take the controls of the aircraft. Put it through manoeuvres such as cruising, climbing and banking, all under the safe supervision of the instructor.
Depending on air traffic control restrictions, you may fly around the Glasgow City perimeter or alternatively, head west towards Greenock before heading north to Loch Lomond. The aircraft’s panoramic windows allow you to view right around the world beneath you.
You’ll be able to communicate with the instructor through the aircraft radio and will also hear the air traffic control and other aircraft in the area.
This trip is a great experience for those looking for an introduction to gaining a flying licence or simply an amazing flight and a great experience!
