// 30 minute flight experience

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

Alnwick Castle, Dunstanburgh Castle, Warkworth Castle, Alnmouth, Amble & Druridge Bay.

My husband had a flight experience with Paul & he thought it was an amazing experience. All the local attractions of our beautiful coastline were pointed out. He would definitely do it again & thank you to all the lovely helpful staff at the airport xx
