From the pioneering airborne feats of Amelia Earhart to the derring-do of jet test pilot Chuck Yeager, flight has always been one of mankind’s greatest achievements.
Earn your wings with today’s Big Deal on a hands-on flying lesson or flight simulation session with Leading Edge Flight Training at Glasgow Airport.
Fly a light aircraft
Available seven days a week from Glasgow airport, option one of this Big Deal welcomes you aboard for one of life’s must-do experiences: taking the flight controls and experiencing the thrill of flying a light aircraft over Scotland.
The experience starts with a safety briefing and familiarisation of the aircraft. Your route will also be explained and can often vary to accommodate any particular area you would like to see.
Your instructor will complete the required checks and complete the takeoff.
Once airborne, you will take the controls of the aircraft, under the supervision of a Civil Aviation Authority qualified instructor.
You will learn how to turn, climb, and bank the aircraft during your introductory, 50 minute lesson.
You will also get the chance to see some spectacular views of the local area.
Fly a virtual plane
Also available seven days a week at Glasgow airport, options two and three are for one person to enjoy a 30 or 60 minute simulated flight experience.
Guests will have control of the Flight and Navigation Procedure Trainer as the virtual plane flies through different conditions.
Used to train commercial pilots, the simulator is incredibly lifelike. This is as close as you can get to flying a plane without having to know where the parachutes are kept.
Your flight will be directed by a Civil Aviation Authority instructor.
Amazing gift idea
This Big Deal with Leading Edge Flight Training would make the perfect present for the flyboy, or girl, in your life.
It could also be a useful taster for anyone thinking about trying for their pilot’s licence.
