If you're looking for flying lessons near Devizes and Calne, Yatesbury Airstrip is the perfect place to start. You can enjoy a 60-minute flight in a modern light sports aircraft, which will give you a first taste of flying. The trial lessons are conducted using an Ikarus C42 closed-cockpit aeroplane, which is a latest-generation fixed-wing microlight and has the same performance as a typical Cessna training aircraft but with much lower running costs. You'd be surprised how far you can fly on just one tank of fuel!
Moreover, this small and welcoming owner-operated and run airfield near Devizes is an amazing place to fly out of in your light sports aircraft. As soon as you're airborne, you'll be greeted with an awe-inspiring view. You are surrounded by historical sights, and the North Wessex Downs and Vale of Pewsey create the perfect backdrop for your flight. The Ikarus is an impressive machine, and the instructors at Yatesbury love flying this plane in lessons. It's modern, designed, easy to fly, yet full of character - right down to the gull-wing doors! Before the flight, you will receive a pre-flight briefing to ensure that you are well-prepared and feel comfortable.
