Flight Experiences

We offer a range of experiences to suit any potential pilot.

Depending on the package you choose, the number of winch launches will vary, but with up to 15 minutes in the air per launch, and reach a height of up to 2000 feet in a matter of seconds, there will be plenty of time to achieve your dream.

The experience starts when you arrive at the airfield, you'll be met at the launch point by some of our members, where you'll have the chance to ask any questions you have whilst your aircraft is prepared.

Then you'll meet the instructor who'll take you up into the skies, and you'll be given a thorough pre-flight briefing. Your aims for the flight, be it to take control of the aircraft, or to just look out over the skies of Oxfordshire, will be discussed at this point.

And of course, once you've had a go, you may want to learn to fly with us! Check out this page to see what we can offer you.
