trial flights - from just £85

The perfect gift for absolutely anyone!  After a briefing, you'll get the chance to take the controls of one of our modern 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.  

One of best value experiences is the 30 minute flight. You'll have half an hour in the sky. Apart from the beautiful countryside you can expect to see;

Alnwick Castle, Warkworth Castle, Alnmouth & Druridge Bay. 

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. 

Booked a flight experience for my son for his 14th birthday, he had a brilliant time, thank you to his pilot, ‘best thing I’ve ever done’ Aarons words. We will be seeing you again, as Grandad was hinting for a flight for his birthday
