In Stock - Posted out by 4th December


Ready to take off into adventure at Wolverhampton's Halfpenny Green Airport? You're in for a treat!

Buckle up, because we're offering a sky-high selection of trial flights and experiences in both nifty two-seater planes and cozy four-seater wonders. Located just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Birmingham and right in the heart of the Midlands, Halfpenny Green is the place to be for aviation enthusiasts like you!

Now, let's talk planes, shall we? The Wolverhampton flying school knows how to pick 'em. For four-seater trial lessons, we turn to the trusty Piper Cherokee, a time-served classic that's been winning hearts in the sky for ages. Even seasoned commercial pilots with countless hours on big jets can't help but smile when they recall the day they first soared in this charming little aircraft!

But that's not all! They've also got the two-seater Grob, a real pocket rocket that packs a punch. This low-wing trainer is a global sensation, beloved by air forces worldwide. It's lively, it's capable, and it's an absolute joy to fly right here at Halfpenny Green.

Speaking of Halfpenny Green, it's not your run-of-the-mill airport – it's a well-kept gem that's an absolute pleasure to visit. As you turn into the drive, you'll be greeted by a distinctive memorial sculpture at the entrance, and you can't miss the charming blue and whitewashed single-story buildings. These were once RAF structures and have now transformed into a hub of activity, housing various businesses, including the fantastic school you'll be flying with.

Originally known as Bobbington Airport, this triple runway aerodrome has a rich history, opening its doors as an RAF station in 1941 during the Second World War. Civilian flights have been soaring through the skies here since 1961, and today, it's home to a vibrant community of around 70 aircraft.
