Get airborne, flying high into the sky, with this exciting flying lesson!

Learn to become a master of the skies, taking the controls and learning the ropes with a professional flying instructor.

With a variety of lesson durations available, you can choose the lesson length that best suits you. Whether intended as an amazing gift, or as a well-earned treat for yourself, fantastic flying fun is just around the corner!

If you’re going to learn to fly anywhere, then why not pick the Lake District? It’s stunning, the amazing views go on for miles and miles, and with an area that beautiful, you want to see if from all the angles that you can!

The planes at Carlisle Airport are dual-controlled, so once you’re up in the air and the plane is stable, you’ll take control, under the supervision of your instructor.

In standard weather conditions, you can expect to cruise at around 2000ft over Carlisle and the Lake District, and depending on the duration of your lesson, you may be able to fly over iconic sights such as the famous Hadrian's Wall and the Solway Coast.

Choose from 30-minute or 60-minute lessons, in either a 2-seater or a 4-seater plane.

Options galore, with the Lakes ready to be explored!
