30 Minute Hands-On Light Aircraft Flight, County Kildare

  • Take the controls of a light aircraft and experience the thrill of flying
  • You’ll have the opportunity to fly over your house if you live in the area
  • Can be used as qualifying time towards your flying licence

Welcome aboard this amazing light aircraft trial flying lesson experience from Weston Airport. Weston Airport is Ireland’s only Executive Airport, located to the west of Dublin city centre between the towns of Celbridge and Lucan.

This incredible experience begins with an introduction to flying in the form of a pre-flight briefing from your qualified instructor. You will learn about the safety aspects of the flight and the features and controls of the aircraft, the Cessna 152, in which you will be flying.

Once on-board, your instructor will do pre-flight checks, start the plane, taxi to the runway and take off. You’ll be equipped with a headset so that you will be able to talk with your instructor and hear the conversations that your instructor and air traffic control will be having during the flight.

Once in the air, you’ll get fantastic panoramic views of the local countryside, towns and villages. If you live in the vicinity of the aerodrome, it may be possible to arrange a flight over your home.

You will also be given the opportunity to take the controls of the aircraft and experience the thrill of flying at first hand, all under the safe supervision of the pilot.

This trip is a great gift for any one with a passion for flying and is guaranteed to provide unforgettable memories!
