An Incentive Day for your Team
This activity fosters a great team spirit and is an excellent medium for a competition or simply an entertaining day out. It's a wonderful experience and each person has the opportunity to actually fly the aeroplane with a fully qualified and experienced instructor.
So, if you're looking for a way of pumping some adrenalin in a very different way, see below how we can share with you some new horizons and the thrill of soaring with the buzzards over the beautiful rolling plains of Hampshire.
One of the exercises in the syllabus to obtain a Private Pilot's Licence in the UK is the 'Air Experience Flight' and we use this as the basis for introducing prospective pilots to the joys of flying and even though this is exciting enough, rather like a chef will create a special sauce to enhance the savour of a dish, we are able to spice this basic activity with different 'flavours' to suit the occasion.
We've flown with thousands of people on these Air Experience flights, many of them groups of colleagues or friends from an endless list of companies - British Telecom, Toshiba, Sun Life, Rentokil, Vodafone, IGS, Nokia, IBM, Digital, The BBC and many more.
The 20 minute flights allow for for groups of a minimum of 7 to a maximum of 30 persons.
The 40 minute flights allow for groups of a minimum of 7 to a maximum of 15 persons.
The programmes also include a one-hour audio-visual introductory presentation on the history of flight and opportunity to talk to enthusiasts who will explain the many and varied aspects of this exhilarating sport.
Each person has an air-experience flight where the controls are explained and you can actually fly the aircraft. If conditions are suitable you'll be able to participate in the takeoff and landing too. This exercise is part of the training syllabus and can be used as time gained towards obtaining a Private Pilot's Licence.
Also included is a challenging task on our simulator where each person has the opportunity to land an aircraft - at Heathrow ! !
At the end of the flight, a signed certificate is presented as a memento and this can be used as an entry in your Personal Flying Logbook should you ever decide to take a course of flying lessons.
