How gifting with Breakaway Experiences works:
This Introductory Flying Lesson is perfect for those interested in aviation and want to experience what it’s like to fly an airplane.You will go up with an experienced instructor and have the opportunity to take the controls of the Cessna 172 Skyhawk.Once airborne, the fun part of learning to fly really begins. After a demonstration of how to manoeuvre the aircraft it's over to you to take control. You'll be in control for most of the flying lesson, practicing gaining and losing altitude, turns, banks and staying on a straight course (easier said than done!). You can stay in control of the aircraft for the whole time if you wish, or have the instructor take over for a few minutes while you take some photos for lasting memories of your flying lesson.After your time at the controls, the instructor will again take over for landing, and once safely back on the ground you'll carry out post flight checks and have the opportunity to learn how to taxi as you steer the aircraft back to the hangar. As a final bonus, should you get the flying bug and decide to go and get your license, this flying lesson counts towards your flying time so you'll already be on your way!
