VVB Aviation Trial Lesson

TrainingOriginal and exciting – an amazing flying experience! Enjoy a new perspective of the countryside and London

Take to the air in our Fixed-wing aircraft for a thrilling 'Hands-On' flying experience. Whether it is a treat for yourself or given as a very special present, the Fixed-wing aircraft Trial Lesson from VVB Aviation is a great experience that will always be remembered. For some, a trial lesson will be a one off experience, for others it will be a foundation upon which to build on and learn to fly. For all, it will be truly memorable!

We operate our trial lessons seven days a week throughout the year. The flight can be booked at the time of purchase or the voucher holder can telephone to book a time convenient to themselves. Gift Vouchers can be purchased over the telephone, by credit or debit card, or by cheque through the post

On completion of the trial lesson you will receive a pack including memories of the day, training information and an incentive offer for your next flight.

Trial lessons are undertaken in either Cessna C152 or PA28 Cherokee fixed-wing aircraft. If the recipient is over 6' tall or 16 stones in weight we regret that they will not be able to fly in the CESSNA C152 fixed-wing aircraft and you will need to choose the PA28 CHEROKEE fixed-wing aircraft. The PA28 CHEROKEE option has the added benefit of allowing two passengers to enjoy the experience as well.

Fixed Wing Introductory Days

During an introductory day you will be shown how to navigate and some of the basic principles of working out your headings, track, drift angle, groundspeed & timings for each leg, and you'll also be introduced to the basic aerodynamic principles of flight. The session is split into two flights with a break for lunch and a total of 2 ½ hours flight time.

Once in the plane, your flight starts from the time the engine turns over. You will be given headphones so that you can hear conversations between your instructor and air traffic control, and so that you can talk with your instructor.
