Take to the skies in a Cessna 152 and experience the unrivalled joys of aviation with this 30 minute light aircraft flight in Hertfordshire. Following a briefing and discussion on flight safety, hop into the cockpit with a trusty instructor to get ready for take-off. Then it’s time for the main event – head up to the clouds and once at a steady altitude, marvel at the sensational bird’s-eye views of the Hertfordshire countryside while your instructor puts this nimble little craft through its paces. During the flight, take over the controls and navigate the plane through the clouds to get a sense of what it’s like to be a real light aircraft pilot! For those with the flying bug, this actually counts towards a Private Pilot’s Licence.
