Do you want to fly in the most famous small plane in the world? The Cessna 172 is a four-seat aircraft, so you can bring two friends along too!
The flying lesson is flown from Hilversum. Hilversum Airport is a compact airport with a grass runway. All fields have a cozy restaurant on the runway. There is always plenty of activity and you can enjoy all kinds of aircraft that are constantly flying off and on. This will make you look forward to your own flying lesson even more.
This Cessna 172 is used all over the world. It has been in production since the 1950s. And with 43,000 units, this is the best-selling plane ever. Almost every pilot has flown in it at one time or another. It is also the most widely used training plane.
The plane is so popular because it is pleasant and fine flying. This is because of the space inside, for example. Even if you are a bit taller or heavier, you can sit comfortably in it. The wings of the Cessna are on top. This gives you a great view and you can take the best pictures during the flight. Besides you and the instructor, two passengers can come along. This makes the package, per person, one of the most advantageous. Who are you going to impress with your flying skills?
The Cessna is very suitable to look around from. You can decide which way you want to fly. At the bottom of this page you will find a map of the Netherlands, where you can see how far you can fly. You can even fly over your own house if you want to.
From the flight school you have a great view of the runway. Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the airport. This will get you all in the mood!
You start with an explanation of the basics of flying. The instructor will answer important questions in this 'briefing'. How does an airplane stay in the air? How do the pedals work? What are all the buttons and gauges for? Of course you can also ask all your questions. Are you coming to the flight school together with your partner, friend and/or family member? Then he/she is also allowed to be present. Then you all know what you will experience in the air. You do not have to pay extra for this. Of course, this also applies to the passengers.
The theory part always takes about 20 minutes, regardless of the time you choose for the practical part.
After the theory part you go with the instructor to the plane. First you check together whether the aircraft is ready for departure. Then you drive to the runway, this is called taxiing. Through the headphones you can hear the instructor and the control tower. The instructor asks permission from the control tower to take off. And then the time has come! In the air you can fly the plane yourself. You get to fly everything yourself except the last part of the landing. Of course the instructor helps you with everything. He will take over if you want to look outside. Or if you want to make photos or a video.
How long the practical part takes you choose. The minimum is 30 minutes, but the longer, the more fun of course!
