You haven't seen a tree until you've seen its shadow from the sky.

Blackbushe Aviation offers a variety of all-inclusive introductory flying packages together with a range of speciality flights. For all of these we provide a gift voucher for the recipient and a certificate on completion of the flight.

We use a Cessna 152 as our two seat aircraft and a Piper Archer as our four seat aircraft; the latter allows the voucher holder to bring another person, or possibly two others, depending on weight, along with them for the ride.

The prices are fully inclusive of landing fees, instruction, third party insurance and club membership for the duration of the flight. If you are buying a voucher online for someone else, please note their name in "note to seller" on the paypal page and please include a contact telephone number.

Going for a Spin
This flight is for those who find the basic air experience a little tame. The spin in the Cessna 152 is completely safe and fun! Your experienced instructor will first talk you through the various stages of the spin entry and recovery and then, having climbed the aircraft to a suitable height, will send it tumbling earthwards in a spin before recovering to level flight.

Aerobatics Experience 
The ultimate thrill for those with a sense of adventure, or friends and family with a mean streak, the 30-minute aerobatic experience is flown with a qualified aerobatics instructor in our Cessna 152 Aerobat. Enjoy the exhilaration of looping the loop, a barrel roll, a stall turn and a spin then back to boast about it to friends and family. Please note there is a height and weight limit for aerobatic flights. 6' 2" (188cm) and 14 stone (89kg).

Aerobatic Special - Currently not available
We have been asked to offer a longer Aerobatic flight - so here it is - The Aerobatic Special for those who wish to do a 'normal' trial lesson but with the thrill of the Aerobatic experience thrown in, learn the controls and fly the 'plane, then let your instructor show you what can be done. Please note there is a height and weight limit for aerobatic flights. 6' 2" (188cm) and 14 stone (89kg).

Land Away Specials
Due to demand we are now offering land aways. These consist of a flight with a landing at another airfield and then returning to Blackbushe. We brief you first, as with the other trial lessons, and you have the chance to try your hand at flying but with the added bonus of being able to experience a landing at another airfield, often on grass (allowing for suitability). An experience for those looking for a little more... or who have had a 'normal' air experience and want to go again but with a bit of difference!
