Sheffield Aero Club


Introductory Flight

G-ASMW departing Netherthorpe

Take to the air and experience the freedom of flight in one of our professionally maintained aircraft. There aren't many experiences which can compare with flying in a light aircraft and it is an ideal introduction to further flying training.

Your Introductory Flight Experience

Sheffield Aero Club is offering the opportunity for anyone who has ever wondered what it is like to fly in a light aircraft to take to the air and experience the thrill with a fully authorised CAA qualified pilot.

For many people it is a one off experience, for others it’s the beginning of an exciting new hobby or career. The Introductory Flight is a brilliant way to experience this unique form of flying and to decide whether flying really is for you. Either way they make fantastic presents to give to your loved ones or even just to spoil yourself.

Sheffield Aero Club is situated on the cusp of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire with the beautiful Peak District on our doorstep.

Depending on the length of your air tour you could take in the legendary "Dambuster Run" retracing the flight path taken by 617 squadron during the training for their wartime mission.

There are also many other beautiful sites to visit including: Lincoln Cathedral, Humber Bridge, Bolsover Castle, Haddon Hall, Rufford Abbey, Chatsworth House, Hardwick Hall, Newstead Abbey or even an aerial view of your own home!

Your voucher is valid for 12 months and includes introductory membership to the club, giving you access to our facilities.

Important Notice

Whilst Sheffield Aero Club will endeavour to fly at the prearranged time, the pilot may amend or cancel the flight even at short notice. This is usually due to poor weather and/or flight safety. In these circumstances the flight will be rearranged for another time/date.

A £30 surcharge will be applied to bookings cancelled with less than 48hrs notice.

Due to the small size of the aircraft there is a passenger weight limit of 15 stone and a height restriction of 6ft. Anyone outside these limits should advise Sheffield Aero Club prior to purchasing a voucher as we do have a larger aircraft available which would be more comfortable to use.

Persons taking the flight should be of good health and Sheffield Aero Club reserves the right on safety grounds to refuse to allow any persons who it deems unfit to fly to do so.
