The Adventurer

in our 2 Seater aircraft

This flight will go North, crossing the River Thames to Southend Airport the local home for Ryanair and Stobbart Air Freight. This lesson consists of two flights as you will depart Lydd, travel North over Kent with view of Leeds Castle and (on a clear day) the QE2 Bridge to the River Thames and land at Southend on the north shore.

During the flight the Instructor will demonstrate the basic controls and, if you feel confident enough, you will be able to fly the aircraft for much of the flight before the arrival at Southend Airport.

On approach you will need to join in with the Commercial Jet Traffic which uses Southend. There will be ample time for a light meal at the large on-site Hotel which has wonderful views of the airport from it’s restaurant on the 5th floor. Booking is required for a main meal but the snack bar adjacent the main restaurant is normally available for a light snack.

For something a little more casual there is always the nearby fast food restaurant before your flight back to Lydd. (Meals not included in price)

Allow 3-4 hours minimum for this lesson.
