Introductory cessna flight - from £95

The perfect gift for that budding commercial pilot or for someone looking to do their pilots licence.  This voucher experience provided by Purple Aviation will take place in the legendary Cessna 150 - the backbone of flight training since the 1960s. 

After a briefing, you'll get the chance to take the controls of this wonderful aircraft as you take to the skies around Northumberland.  You'll get to see the stunning coastline, castles and scenery that this wonderful county has to offer.  

If you're looking for a voucher for someone who is considering a career in flying, this is the perfect gift - every flight will also count towards a pilots licence. 

To remember your experience we can now film the entire flight in HD from the cockpit including audio. You'll hear the pilot, passenger & air traffic controllers on the video - the perfect addition to this gift experience. 

Amazing experience on Saturday. Really enjoyed flying along coast and the views were spectacular!
