Trial Flights / 1st Flying lessons in Inverness

Trial Flights in the Highlands 
 

A trial flight is one of the best gifts you can buy anybody who has a passion for Scotland. See the fantastic scenery of the Highlands from the air and experience flying an aircraft yourself with professional tuition from our highly experienced instructors.  It can be a one off instructional flight with an emphasis on enjoying the view or it could mark the beginning of your flying career.

This is the chance for you to experience flight in a light aircraft and take the control yourself! At all times under the supervision of a experienced instructor, you can fly anywhere you want.

The flight is yours and with the luxury of open airspace in Inverness we will be happy to fly anywhere you want around Inverness and the highlands.The most popular destinations are Loch Ness, Culloden, Cawdor Castle and the Cairngorms.

All trial flight time can be counted towards your pilot's licence. Every flight includes a full brief and debrief in our clubhouse with your instructor.

All vouchers can be upgraded at a later date, after purchase (even on the day, depending on aircraft availability) by simply paying the difference in price. So a 2 seat trial flight can be upgraded to a 4 seat trial flight if you later decide to take 1 or 2 friends with you!

 Prices start from an amazing £72.99  £69.99!

  • There is enough time to fly around Inverness City, the Black Isle, the shorelines of the Moray Firth, Cromarty Firth, Beauly Firth, local mountains, Loch Ness, and more... simply a wonderful experience.
  • Perhaps you want to explore the less accessible Glens to the West, the Cairngorms National Park or search for the Loch Ness Monster?
  • Perhaps you want to fly over some of the many National Monuments, or just do some really extensive training to get to understand the wonders of the modern Gyrocopter.

Whatever you want to do, we are sure you will never forget your Ultimate Inverness Gyrocopter flight.
