An Introductory Flight is the first step for anyone wondering what it feels like to fly an aeroplane and will count towards your Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) if you decide to continue your flight training. 

Your first lesson starts with a pre-flight briefing from your instructor covering the safety aspects of the flight and giving you a general introduction to the features and controls of the aircraft you will be flying. All our aircraft are equipped with full dual flying controls.

You will be provided with a headset so that you can talk with your instructor and hear conversations between your instructor and Air Traffic Control during the flight.

Your instructor will perform the take-off and landing and, once the aircraft is in the air, you will be given the opportunity to take the controls and experience the thrill of flying at first hand. If you live in the vicinity of the aerodrome, and depending on the duration of the flight and the constraints of Air Traffic Control, it may be possible to arrange a flight over your home.

Back on the ground, your instructor will issue you with a certificate to commemorate your day. Gift Vouchers are available for 50 minutes flight time. All vouchers are valid for 6 months from the date of issue.

Why Choose Us

 

The National Flight Centre offers approved courses starting with introductory flights and ranging from Private Pilot Licence (PPL) all the way through to Commercial Airline Pilot courses.

 
I completed the modular ATPL course with National Flight Centre in April. While the course is hard work the team at NFC made sure that I had all the assistance I needed to get through it. The modular course suited me, as I needed to work my flight training around my own job and NFC were very accommodating in creating a schedule that was manageable. I really enjoyed the atmosphere out in Weston during my training, all the instructors and staff are very helpful and always on hand to assist with any questions I had. Thanks to them I am starting my B737 type rating with Ryanair in December. I would definitely recommend the National Flight Centre to anyone who is interested in pursuing a flying career!
