Flying Experience in Lanarkshire
 

This experience offers you the opportunity to take control of a light aircraft and see Scotland in a totally new perspective!

After an initial safety briefing, the flight academy scotland instructor will taxi the aeroplane and perform the take off, he will then demonstrate some of the basic maneouvers and allow you to do as much or as little of the flying as you wish!

All our aeroplanes are fitted with dual flying controls. This is a fantastic experience and certainly something you will remember.
