The Pilot Experience: Insight into becoming a pilot for one (Introduction to Flying)

Ever wondered what it takes to become a private or commercial pilot? Ever given a thought about the workings of a typical small airfield?
Why not come and visit us at the Elstree Airfield for an action and information packed half a day? You can even bring your partner or a friend along with you.

The journey will start with a flight briefing by our experienced flight instructors. Once you ‘know how to fly an airplane', it will be time to put into practice your newly acquired knowledge in a real, 2-seat light airplane, under close supervision of your pilot instructor. During this training flight you will have the chance to handle the airplane controls and experience the freedom of the sky as never before - for approximately 30 minutes. All too soon you will again be on the ground, where a talk will be organized, to give you a better understanding of what it takes and all the steps needed to realize your dream. An extensive tour around the airfield and a visit to the control tower may also be organised (if they are not too busy). At the end of the journey you will have thorough debrief and you will be issued with a ‘Flight Certificate’ to commemorate your experience. Should you ever wish to continue and realize your dream of becoming a pilot, we will be with you along the way, guiding you and assisting you towards the issue of a Private Pilot's Licence.


Pilot experience for two: Introduction to Flying

Why not upgrade to a 4-seat plane, so that your partner or friend could share your experience? We could even organize landing at another airfield and both of you will have the chance to take the pilot's seat on each leg of your journey.
