Not the case here. I did this with a friend we had about a 30 min briefing and then hit the air. Pilot took off and we took control of the plane within 5 mins. Flew plane to runway approach then pilot took over and landed. repeated for second person to fly. So flew for 30-40 mins each.
I did this at Coventry not so long ago. It was a great day! Getting my PPL isn't for me, but it was a good experience.
Yes you can take the cab x
Yes Coventry airport, sorry I'm not local so I'm not sure about accessibility.

This has always been the problem, it is VERY expensive (for people of normal means). The only way around it I can see is a fixed wing microlight (minimum 25hrs at similar prices to normal planes, plus better fuel economy) then having some sort of share in a plane, or the strapping things on to you and running/jumping off things! Also moderately cheap in comparison for gliders (about 2k to qualified), with some gliders containing engines.
Looks like I may have to sell a few shares in that case oO
45 hours minimum. if you are only flying once a week, figure on 50% more, dependent on your abilities and the weather. i took 45 ish but was flying every day on an integrated course. just passed 3000 hours recently :)
Got a ppl myself and yes a great deal indeed-who am i to put anyone off going for a ppl great experience but please remember: If it flies, sails, has wheels or fu??s it will bankrupt you in the end!!!;)
HAHA! It IS possible without license! I'll be the 'Northern Line flyer' this time next year! http://www.bmaa.org/pwpcontrol.php?pwpID=2602
You will find it is 30 mins briefing and 30 mins racing time. I took my sons a month or so ago with an offer from groupon that stated 1 hr. it turns out 2 be 1 hr total time (30 briefing 30 racing). They had a time of there life's.... It's defiantly something they will always remember. :)
Yup Avoid Heathrow with a Barge Pole. Terrible Staff at that one.
None in Wales either!
Livingsocial and Groupon had one near Lichfield for £14 each for an hour this week.
30mins in one go :)
