The 2 Seat aircraft is the 1st chosen by most “student” pilots since it is the simplest and cheapest when they undertake the full training course.
Suitable for over 13 y.o. and average adults.
Don’t hesitate to check if “student” is above average weight/height
The 4 Seat aircraft is suitable for all ages.
There is no minimum age for “Trial Lessons” but students need to reach all the controls to gain the full benefit. Under 14s will require a parent/guardian to fly with them.
The four seater can accommodate the student and instructor plus one or two friends/family -subject to weight limits.
Prices are all inclusive - no extra for your “passengers”

Light aircraft are normally classed as “single engine piston” aircraft (SEP). These come in a multitude of sizes depending on their purpose, e.g. Training, Pleasure/Leisure, Commercial, etc. Some centres offer smaller aircraft (microlights, etc) and reduced flight times - some as short as 15 minutes. Lydd Aero Club only have full sized light aircraft and we do a full 30 minute or 60 minutes “lessons” (or more) in the aircraft PLUSbriefings.
