Celebration Courses

Are you looking for more than an Introductory Flight?  Last year, our experienced Flying Club Conington instructors took over 200 people flying for the first time in a light aircraft and many want to come back and do it again. If you want something more for the pilot in your life or to treat yourself, Flying Club Conington has a new range of Celebration Courses. They would make ideal Christmas presents.
A Celebration Course is a “One to One” course with your instructor. These courses are often bought to mark the celebrations in life such as retirement or for the “Big Birthdays” Where people club together and buy that really special experience. The following courses are available but if you can’t see what you want, please call us and we will put a personalised package together for you.


ribbonThe Celebration Double
The Celebration double is for those who just want the sheer thrill of flying and has been put together to allow you to fly an Aeroplane AND a Helicopter in the same day!
The course includes:  30 minutes flying in a fixed wing aeroplane followed by 30 minutes flying in a helicopter. This is fantastic fun, no ground school, no books, just amazing experiences, indelible memories and a certificate to prove that you flew them both yourself. This course includes a free wings badge or baseball cap.
The Celebration Double costs £ 275.00   Phone 01487 834161 to book.
