Gift Vouchers

Merseyflight Air Training School offers everybody the opportunity to experience the gift of flight. We are the Number 1 choice throughout the North West and beyond. Flying experiences are often purchased as gifts for friends and relatives for that special occasion. They are also a great introduction for anybody considering learning to fly, and will count towards your licence should you decide to continue your training. Absolutely no prior knowledge or experience is required and, should you wish, you can purchase a Pilot’s Log Book from the school to officially record your inaugural flight times. You can even have your flight recorded on to DVD so that you can enjoy, and share, the experience over and over again.

VouchersThese Air Experience Flights, or Trial Lessons as they are commonly known, make ideal Birthday, Christmas, Father’s Day or even Valentine’s Day gift. A Trial Lesson is also a great gift for an aviation enthusiast or somebody who “has it all”. Our professionally created vouchers are the perfect way to present your gift on the special day.

Trial Flight GuideWhether the Trial Lesson you have booked is a gift or you have decided to have a go yourself, you will find that the experience will be greatly enhanced if you take a read through this short guide in advance. You do not need to learn the contents of the book, but you will find that it will give you a head start when your instructor briefs you for the lesson. Take a few minutes to review the contents and then go and enjoy what will surely be one of the most memorable experiences of your life…

DVDIf you would like your flight recorded on to DVD, you can pre-purchase in our on-line store at a discounted price. However, if you don’t pre-order but decide you would like one on the day, then please don’t forget to ask before departure!

Trial lessons are available 7 days per week including Bank Holidays. They can be taken any time in the 12 months after the issue date. Packages are dispatched first class to the address of your choice.

Choosing Your Experience

You can choose between a two-seat Piper PA38 Tomahawk or a larger four-seat Piper PA28 Cherokee. Those in receipt of any PA28 Cherokee experience are encouraged to bring one friend along to sit in the back of the aircraft to observe the flight. For this reason the PA28 Cherokee is an excellent gift for a family member. Two-seat vouchers are upgradable to four-seat vouchers.

Trial lessons are available in either 40 minute (Introductory) or 60 minute (Extended) durations. We recommend either of them - they are both fantastic gifts!

The Day of Your Flight

As we are all aware, the weather in our country can be a fickle thing. Before you set off for the airport, please give our Flight Operations office a call on 0151 907 1450 in order to check the forecast.

On arrival you will be greeted by our friendly staff and will be asked to fill in a short form. You will then be introduced to your Flight Instructor who will discuss the flight plan with you. Where your flight takes you is a decision made between yourself and your instructor - particular favourites include Liverpool City Centre, the North Wales coast, Liverpool and Everton football grounds, around the Wirral peninsular, Chester City Centre or maybe you could even fly over your own house!

Prior to departure you will be escorted out on to the apron where you will board the aircraft and your instructor will familiarise you with the flight controls and conduct a routine safety briefing. Once completed, it’s your opportunity to participate as much as possible in your flight, whether it be pre-flight checks, taxiing the aircraft to the runway or helping with the Take-Off! Very quickly you will begin to appreciate the life of a pilot as, shortly after getting airborne, your instructor will turn to you and say “You have control”…
