Make My Trip


Most flight schools operate year round, though flights are weather dependent and therefore the spring and summer seasons are the best options.

In the event of a cancellation, most flight schools will offer you the chance to re-book for a future date, though this should be checked with the operator prior to booking.

You don't have to be a particular age before you can begin to take flying lessons. That said, however, you do have to be at least 16 years old before you can solo an airplane.
