Introductory LessonsExperience your first taste of flight with Horizon Aviation
If you’ve always wondered about becoming a pilot, or even if you just want to experience the excitement of flying, then an introductory lesson is the place to start.
Choose from 30 minutes or a full hour in either the PA-28 Cherokee (our standard training aircraft) or, if you’re feeling adventurous and would like to try a few aerobatics as well, the Bulldog!
Contact us to find out more.
You will receive a full pre-flight briefing with your instructor, covering both safety and what you will be doing in the air. Once airborne, you will have the opportunity to fly the aircraft yourself and will be taught how to use all of the basic controls. If you have chosen one of our aerobatic experiences in the Bulldog, you will also have the opportunity to experience the thrill of a few loops and rolls, and even have a go yourself!
Depending on the duration of flight you have chosen, you might even have the time to do a little local site seeing too (especially if your house is nearby!). What’s more, should you choose to carry on and train for your own Private Pilot Licence, the introductory lesson will count towards the required course hours!
If you have chosen to fly in the PA-28 then, subject to weight restrictions, you can also bring a guest along at no extra charge.
