How to get started…

Trial lessons are designed as an introduction to the Private Pilot’s Licence course, or can be purchased as a gift voucher for that special occasion.

During the flight you will have the option to take control and experience the thrill of flying an aircraft or you can just enjoy the beautiful west of Scotland scenery. You can decide the route and, if within range you could even see your house from the air!

Trial lessons are available in 2 seater or 4 seater aircraft (seating includes your instructor). Why not bring friends or family along to share the experience?
