Flying lesson

Flying Lesson
For 50,000 Best Western Rewards® points feel the adrenalin rush as you take the controls of a light plane and soar across the sky! You get one-to-one training with a Civil Aviation Authority licensed flying instructor, and your flying time counts towards a Private Pilot's licence.
Flying Lesson Discovery:
  • Introduction to flying, aircraft controls and safety
  • One-to-one training from a CAA licensed instructor
  • Allow 1 hour for your flying lesson which will include approx 30 mins flying time with the opportunity to take the controls
  • Experience gift pack including smart wallet, personalised voucher and message card
  • PA cover to a value of £50,000 plus cancellation indemnity
What happens on the day:
Flying lessons start with a briefing from your instructor before the flight. This will cover safety, and an introduction to some of the controls. Once in the plane, the flying lessons start from the time the engine turns over. You will be given headphones so that you can hear conversations between your instructor and air traffic control, and so that you can talk with your instructor. Once in the air, you will be able to take the controls but your pilot will generally land the plane and taxi back.
