Trial Flying Lessons
Your first step towards learning to fly would usually be your trial flying lesson. These lessons also make excellent gifts for such occasions as birthdays, christmas, valentines day etc. Whatever the reason for your trial flight, we aim to make it the most enjoyable experience possible and would hope to encourage your interest in learning to fly.
At Glasgow Flying Club(Find Us) not only do you have the chance to experience flying an aeroplane, but as an added bonus you get to fly from the same runway as the large passenger jets bound for various worldwide destinations.
Our location is easily accessible from West & Central Scotland yet we're only ten minutes away from some of the most attractive scenery in the world. Your trial flying lesson will probably involve you flying over Loch Lomond, or perhaps out to the West towards Dunoon or Rothesay.
After takeoff you will be shown how to fly the aeroplane, and then you will have control! Your Instructor will take control again just before landing. The lesson will just fly by!
Also, once you decide to become a pilot the flight time can then be logged in your flying log book and will count towards the minimum number of hours required to gain a license.
