Flying Start

A Special Package Deal for Budding Pilots

If you are certain you want to learn to fly and are looking for something more than a trial flying lesson then our Flying Start package is designed just for you!


From the outset you will be introduced to your PPL instructor. You will learn about the structure of the course and the JAA or NPPL syllabus, what is expected of you and what you can expect in return. Included in this package are two one hour flying lessons which include a full pre-flight briefing from your instructor in which you will be shown the aircraft you will learn to fly in, discuss the effects of controls and the basic operation of the aircraft and how to stay safe in the air and on the ground.

After your briefing you will then start your flying in earnest as you take to the sky in the captain's seat for your first flying lessons! After your flight you will then go through a debrief covering what you just learned and allowing you to ask any questions you may have about your flight and the next lesson.

Flying Start also includes a bundle of essential equipment which is yours to keep, so in total this great package includes:

  • 2 hours flight training including flight briefings 
  • 3 months SAC membership
  • Pilots Official Log Book 
  • Trevor Thom's "The Air Pilot's Manual, Volume 1" -the de-facto PPL manual.
  • Cessna 150/152 Pilot's Check List
