About Ballooning & Flying

Soaring high through the air and gazing down on the world below is an incredible experience like no other. Ballooning & Flying experience days offer the chance for two of you to do just that, revelling in the freedom of the skies and the pure exhilaration of controlling your own plane or glider, enjoying a flight in a helicopter or floating gently over some of the country’s most stunning scenery in a hot air balloon.

If you’ve always dreamed of flying your own aircraft but haven’t got round to the years of training for your own pilot’s licence you can still get a taste of what it is like with a 30 Minute Flying Lesson for Two, enjoying full briefings before you are both taken up in the air by your instructor who shows you some basic manouevres before letting you take the controls for your own turn.

If you like to travel in unique style then a Microlight Flight Experience will give you the chance to enjoy the rush of flight with the wind in your hair, as well as being able to take control mid-air yourself.

For admirers of classic engineering and stunning scenery, then a Vintage Flight Over London for Two in a classic 1930s aeroplane is perfect for soaking up the surroundings of historic London. Other exhilarating aircrafts at your disposal for more unforgettable flying experiences include helicopters and aerobatic stunt planes, while a champagne sunrise hot air balloon flight is one of the most romantic ways for two of you to take to the skies.
