In total, 80 minutes will be spent in the air with the lucky recipient at the controls for most of the time. Although suitable for someone who has never flown before, it’s mainly aimed at someone who might have been up for a short flight and wants a really extensive experience.
NPPL Private Pilot Licence
As with all our gift flights, if they get hooked on flying then the time will count towards the minimum hours required to gain a 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!
What they’ll see…
An unparalleled view of Scotland’s stunning scenery. The choice is up to them but usually we will fly across country to another airfield, such as Cumbernauld or Glenrothes, and land. Then you can see if you can navigate back home to the Airfield!
By car, around 45 minutes from Glasgow and Ayr and an hour from Stirling and Edinburgh
