// 90 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.  

Our longest standard experience is the 90 minute flight. You'll have an hour and a half in the sky. Apart from the seals on the beach at Holy Island you can expect to see;

Berwick, Alnwick Castle, Brunton Airfield, Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle, Seahouses, Beadnell Bay, Dunstanburgh Castle, Warkworth Castle, Alnmouth, Amble & 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. 

My wife and I had great time flying (although the missus got air sick). We flew over the coastal castles of Northumberland and we where encouraged to take control of the aircraft.

Firmly hooked on flying -‘just have to persuade the missus!
