Discover the stunning sights of Yorkshire with our new 90-minute experience flight. A perfect gift for Christmas!

This Flight Experience provides an amazing opportunity to take to the skies and see the world from a different perspective. Discover the stunning sights of Yorkshire - from its magnificent coastlines, cliffs and beaches to its historical buildings and cities.

Routing - The flight departs Sherburn heading eastwards towards the Humber Estuary. Once directly overhead the Humber Bridge we then set course for Hornsea and track north following the coastline passing Bridlington, Scarborough, Filey, Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby. On reaching Whitby it will be time to start heading back to Sherburn via the North York Moors, Castle Howard and York before finally returning the airfield.

As with all our flying experiences, they start with a full pre-flight briefing from one of our highly qualified and experienced instructors before being taken to your aircraft. During the flight you will be given the chance to take the controls of the aircraft, sitting in the captains seat in the cockpit. Under the supervision of your flight instructor, you will assist with the take-off and landing of the plane, as well as have the opportunity to experience handling and flying the aircraft - all whilst admiring Yorkshire from this unusual vantage point. On completion of your flying lesson you will receive a personalised certificate providing the details of your flight.

Any time flown during a flight experience can be logged towards both the UK Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL) and the UK Private Pilot Licence (PPL) - making it the perfect starting point for anyone interested in learning to fly!

If you are purchasing any of our flying experiences as a gift, then we will send you a personalised gift voucher for the recipient with the details of their flight. Gift vouchers are valid for 12 months and can be used at any time during the year.
