Yeah £120 an hour is a fair average i'd say. Try it you'll enjoy it :)
#6
Aww shame its not in my area...

I want to get one of these for my sons 13th birthday...

Great deal though...

Have paid £50-75 for this experience in the past and it was cheap then!

I found if it was quiet and you had a nice pilot...he doesnt notice the clock :thumbsup:
#7
will surely try that. but i need to go to blackpool from belfast!!!
#8
if you can do it then you should.
15 minutes isn't long though so if you can buy extra time at the same rate that would be ace!

i once did an hour and flew over the isle of wight/solent area

i've done 6 more lessons since then lol

It does have a 9 month shelf life. So you could pre-book and make up an excuse to see the Blackpool illuminations whilst there. Or just suprise the missus. or yourself if your forgetful like me :-)

If you are a teenager then you should just join Air Cadets as you get to go flying for free, flights tend to be 30 mins long and you get to do airobatics etc. So far i've had 7 flights in a grob tutor at RAF Leeming and 3 flights in a powered glider at RAF topcliff in the 4 years i've been in cadets.
#16
Well the same site does all sorts of extended trial flights if 15 minutes aint enough for you.. including aerobatic trials where they do loops/rolls/wing overs :) not for the faint hearted apparently !!

"Spectators are welcome and may take photographs"

How would they stop them?

That would pertain to close-up in cockpit photography of course :thinking:

The airfield where I did my 30 minutes trial flight ten years ago is charging £70 for 30 minutes (Sherburn near Leeds)

http://www.sherburn-aero-club.org.uk/trial/index.htm

I didn't even know it was possible to have a 15 minute trial flight. Do you just literally take off and fly around the airport? On my 30 minute flight I flew across to York and around the Minster and back again. Amazing !!!!

I should think it's one circuit so not much chance of forgetting the clock.

I did the same location from Eastleigh Airport - just the one lesson and an experience i will never forget. They allowed my father to sit in the back and take photo's as i flew the plane, assisted, over the solent to Cowes and back.
#22
Our local airport does trial flying lessons for £65 - they say it's for half an hour but I got one for my Dad's 60th and for my husband's birthday and that's half an hour in the air but in total the whole experience was about an hour and a half. They flew over the Malvern Hills and you could take two passengers too. Great experience and a great gift.

Think a helicopter flight is about £120.
#23
Check your local RAF base if it has a flying school. Only £75 per hour for civilians or at least it is at RAF Waddington.
#24
When I booked a trial lesson for OH (£40.00 - 10 yrs ago), she was allowed to take TWO passengers as well.

This makes it a pretty good VFM day out.

15 minutes is over very quickly, tho. 15 minutes feels like 5.

Here also on the air cadets idea, I was 13 when I first flew. Had air field across the road from us, but I had to clean fire engines and other aircraft all day. I also had to run along side the gliders holding their wings off the ground (didn't seem dangerous at the time) before getting my free flight, was well worth the experience though. Of course I don't think they take on anyone over 20 :)

I never got to fly the chipmunk though, as it was always foggy when it came to my turn.
#26
Flying is truely fantastic.
Only time in my life i have been truely breathless was the first time I took off in a small plane.
#27
Fantastic deal - one of the best yet.

Very good question alpha! Unfortunately I don't know. I will check however :thumbsup:

---Edit:

A minimum age of 12 years is required for all Pilot Experience flights (not applicable to Sightseeing or Pleasure flights).
Strict weight restrictions apply - please contact us before your flight if above 16 Stone / 102Kgs (Aeroplane) or 17 Stone / 108 Kgs (Helicopter)

You could get your son to join the Air Cadets (ATC), I used to go flying all the time for roughly 10p per week subs, though it's probably more now.

I think he needs to be 13 years & 9 months to join if I remember correctly. It's the best thing I ever did... EVER !!!

I have flown in...

Glider's
Nimrod's
HAWK TRAINER JETS (to Holland & back)
Wessex Helicopters (the big yellow ones)!

& best of all, Chipmunks, you can take control & do your own aerobatics!!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to all young lads.
#31
I wish they had this in my area, good price for a trial flight to see if it is something worth doing.

voted hot.

I'm sitting in the car at Carlisle airport now....while hubby has his 1 hour lesson...booked last year via HUKD from Buy a Gift with the 20% off voucher...lovely day up here and we'll soon know if 1 hour is enough....or too much!!
I'm also trying to do some work which is why I have my lappy with me...just in case anyone thought it strange.

Yes at Shoreham Airport it is too good to be true. The price of £34 is now £89 to be given headphones in size large that hung round my chin so I could not hear anything and not been given the opportunity of changing them, to sit on the ground while checks were done and then a quick flight whilst the instructor continuously checked his watch, did paperwork with his hands off the controls and forgot to take my photograph is not good. Obvious as he was a teacher in the week and just did this on sundays he wanted to get his hours in and that is all. Total waste of money!

LOL - this thread is 3 years old and would you really prefer the aircraft safety checks to be done in the air?
