Learning to fly can be fun and exhilarating, at GoFly’s flight school we offer training for people who have no experience to professional pilots who wish to expand their skills. Why not take a look at our complete guide that details everything you need to learn to fly
Depending on the route you take to get in the air, we offer a wide range of lessons, to suit all budgets and tastes.
Learning to fly can vary depending on the individual, but on average it can take from 18 months to two years.
Our team of instructors boast a wealth of experience and qualifications among them and always strive to be personable, informative and friendly in order to make the experience for each student pilot as pleasurable as possible and also to maintain the great sense of community that’s always present here.
Depending on the experience you opt for, will determine your flight location. This will be discussed beforehand with your instructor before the flight begins.
The gift of flight is a great experience especially as a gift. We offer multiple options ranging in price depending on the individual. All of our experiences have a downloadable e-voucher as part of the package. Alternatively you can have the voucher sent in the post for an additional cost.
Absolutely the flight can be extended depending on availability of your pilot and the aircraft. However, in the event that a Customer agrees during a flight to buy an upgrade to their current experience then such an agreement shall be binding. The customer shall be bound to pay in full for that upgrade upon landing.
Your voucher will be valid for a year. Due to our generous validity period and ease of booking we do not offer refunds or complimentary extensions; although 3 month extensions can be purchased for £30. Please remember that your flight may be cancelled due to weather, so you should allow plenty of time to rebook should this be the case with your flight. We strongly recommend that you book the voucher within 3 months of the purchase date.

When taking part in any flying experience with GoFly it is important to wear comfortable, but practical clothing. Please no open-toe or high-heeled shoes.
