Aerobatics Trial Lesson

Join one of our fully qualified aerobatic instructors in our fantastic Cessna 152 Aerobat. We'll teach you the basics of aerobatics over the Essex countryside!

Our aerobatic trial lesson is for seasoned pilots and non-pilots alike. Hop in our Cessna 152 Aerobat with one of our instructors and we’ll head to our aerobatics training area over Essex. We’ll then climb up to around 3000 feet and begin some aerobatic manoeuvres under the guidance of your instructor, possibly including loops, aileron rolls, barrel rolls, and chandelles! If you’re feeling up to the challenge your instructor will let you take the controls and teach you some of the manoeuvres!

Recipients will be presented with a gift certificate signed by their instructor as a souvenir of their flight.

You'll meet at North Weald airfield twenty minutes before your flight time. Your fully CAA qualified NWFT flight instructor will greet you and explain the flight plan for the day.

Your pilot will then give you a tour of the aircraft you'll be flying in and a description of the flight systems and instruments before a safety briefing, then you'll take to the sky!

Surprisingly not terrifying!

That's the way I keep describing it to my friends! Taking control of an aircraft that's upside down without having my pilots licence was something I didn't expect to be doing! I'm going up again next week!!
