Trial Lessons

Aviation South West offers trial lessons, ranging from thirty minutes to an hour, that provide an introduction to the art of flying. An introductory flight, supervised by a qualified flight instructor, could be a one-off experience or the first of many training flights.

Taking the controls of an aircraft for the first time may provide fond memories to look back upon, spark an interest in undertaking future supervised flights and could prove to be the first step along the path to becoming a fully qualified pilot.

Trial flying lessons are a wonderful experience for anyone interested in being a pilot for the day and make excellent gifts for birthdays, anniversaries and other important occasions. Your day is made complete with the presentation of a certificate at the end of your flight.

Flight Simulation

Flight simulation is the closest experience to flying an aeroplane available and operating realistic aircraft controls in a simulated environment can provide new pilots with the knowledge, skills and confidence to fly a real aeroplane.

Our flight simulation experience provides an accurate visual representation of flying while imitating in-flight phenomena such as turbulence, wind shear and fluctuating air density.
