A great “hands-on” experience at the aircraft controls, or they can just sit back and enjoy the sensation of flight. The overall experience takes about 1 hour, including briefings.
What they’ll see…
During the 40 minutes in the air, you will cover a distance of about 60 miles around central Scotland. Destinations include Bothwell Castle,
New Lanark, Tinto Hill and the Clyde valley or over towards Kilmarnock, Prestwick and the Clyde coast. If you live nearby we may even be able to see your house from the air!
NPPL Private Pilot Licence
As with all our gift flights, if you get hooked on flying then the time will count towards the minimum hours required to gain your NPPL private pilot’s licence.
The Aircraft: C42 Ikarus
The Ikarus is the sports car of the skies. It can take off in less than 100m, climb at 1000ft a minute and cruise at 100mph. It even has a higher power to weight ratio than a Porsche!
By car, around 45 minutes from Glasgow and Ayr and an hour from Stirling and Edinburgh
