A Trial Flying Lesson in a Premier Flight Training Aircraft
“A gift, where the sky is the limit.”
With a duration of 45 minutes or 1 hour a trial lesson is the ideal way to experience the thrill of flying in a light aircraft. You will be instructed in the basics of flight before going out to the aircraft. You will then see how a pilot carries out a pre-flight inspection the aircraft, listen to the conversation with Air Traffic Control and be given a chance to take control. Depending on the route selected, your flight will allow you to see some of the City of Norwich, Norfolk countryside, the Norfolk Broads and coast from the air.
If you would like a Trial Lesson please telephone and speak to a member of our staff who will guide you through the purchase and booking system. If it is a gift we will gladly issue a voucher for the recipient, and a booking can be made at their convenience later. You can email for details if you prefer. The voucher is transferable, but, except in exceptional circumstances, is not refundable.
Once a booking has been made please arrive about 15 minutes before your booked time. There is a small amount of administration, and then your flying instructor will brief you on the flight. If you have preferences as to where to fly, do not hesitate to make them known at this point. However we cannot guarantee we can meet all requests, but we will try hard to do so.
You will then be taken to the aircraft and briefed on the safety features, and you will sit in the normal pilot’s seat, the instructor will sit in the right hand seat. The instructor will explain what he is doing. During the flight the instructor will demonstrate various gentle manoeuvres, and he will invite you to follow through, and eventually fly the aircraft yourself, under his close supervision.
You must be aware that the weather may preclude flying on some days, the decision to fly or not will be taken by the company, safety is always the highest priority, and your enjoyment comes a very close second, therefore if necessary, a rebooking will be made.
You or your family are encouraged to take photographs of the event, although Airfield access is limited.
The client must be over 18 years of age, and have no life threatening medical condition, or be pregnant. Subject to this restriction anyone is welcome to try a trial lesson, and it can be logged as part of a Private Pilot’s Licence if you wish to go onward. Minors, that is those under 18 years, may be eligible if accompanied by a family member on the flight. The Piper Warrior will be used for the flight unless as stated below.
Trial Flights are normally limited to the “student pilot”, and 1 extra passenger, for which there is no extra charge. If you wish to take another extra passenger, that is the “student pilot” + 2 passengers, you will have to book the Archer at the introductory flight prices. Please see that page and book accordingly.
