The Aviation Experience
The Aviation Experience
We are delighted to announce the launch of our new 3 day Summer holiday Aviation Experience course!
Are you fascinated with all things that go up? With the worlds population expanding, there are more aircraft in the skies than ever before and drones are being used to both simplify and add value to our lives, not to mention providing a whole host of unique business opportunities!
If you’ve ever wondered how an aircraft or drone flies, how Pilots assess weather, how they navigate from A to B or how a drone is built and flown, then our brand new unique 3 day Aviation Experience course is for you. Run in conjunction with our partners at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston, this exciting course will cure your aviation craving and wet your appetite for more!
You’ll learn all about the fundamental processes of operating fights safely and legally for both manned (traditional aircraft) and unmanned (drone) aircraft. We will consider the legal issues relating to Air Law, Meteorology and general weather planning as well as how an aircraft and drone actually fly and other fascinating topics from the Principles of Flight!
From the fundamental constituent parts of a drone to the technical aspects of how a drone is assembled and tested, this is a fun and exciting day in a fascinating environment at the Universities Aerospace Systems Engineering Flight Laboratory. What’s more, the drone you build is yours to keep and take away!
Let’s go flying and put into practice what you’ve learnt so far! You’ll have the opportunity to fly your drone at a specialist outdoor or indoor facility and be given expert guidance on the basics of drone piloting from one of our resident Commercial Drone Pilots.
Depending on your point of view, we save the best for last!
To conclude the course you’ll have the unique opportunity to fly our brand new Redbird FMX Full Motion Flight Simulator, the only one of its kind in the United Kingdom! Take the controls of a state-of-the-art glass cockpit equipped light aircraft under the guidance of an Airline Pilot and Flying Instructor. Learn how to take-off, turn, climb, descend, approach and land at a major airport! You’ll also be given a comprehensive briefing on the fundamentals of the aircrafts primary flight instruments display as well as its navigation and engine instrument displays.
