Product review: Compton Abbas flight by , 15 Sep 16 5/5 Excellent "Easy we went to the air field and arrange a date which did not need to be re-arranged. We knew how to reach the venue and it's facilities which are very good. We were quickly introduced to our pilot who was helpful and experienced. The plane was in good order. We felt perfectly confident and the pilot was able to answer the questions we had. Experience was excellent and the pilot was helpful in re-routing to take account of the weather. We may well do another flight and would recommend. Plenty of photo opportunities and time to have coffee after landing. (experiences4all) not applicable as was a gift "

What's included

Compton Abbas Airfield is ideally located on the top of hill on the border of Dorset and Wiltshire, and in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Already at 800ft when you line up for departure on the runway, as soon as the wheels leave the ground the scenery unfolds dramatically beneath you.
On the day of your flight - firstly you will have a chat with one of our qualified flying instructors and plan the route you would like to take; perhaps flying over your house. Once airborne you will have the opportunity to have a go at the controls and experience the unparalleled thrill of flying a light aircraft.
Take a camera and capture the beautiful views from amongst the clouds.
Once back on the ground you are presented with a Compton Abbas Certificate to commemorate the day. If you do get bitten by the flying bug, the lesson will count as the first hour in your pilots log book, and go towards your private pilots license (not as expensive as you may think!).
We're open all year round with some of the best flying weather actually being in the fresh and calm winter days.
What are you waiting for?
