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!
This flying lesson is flown from Lelystad. In terms of number of flight movements, Lelystad is the busiest Dutch airport after Schiphol. Lelystad Airport is nowadays a controlled field, this means that air traffic control keeps an eye on everything. Therefore, flying from Lelystad is just like flying from a major airport. All fields have a cozy restaurant on the runway. There is always plenty of activity and you can enjoy all kinds of aircraft 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. For example, you can fly over the Dolfinarium. Or have you always wanted to see your own street from the air? At the bottom of this page you will find a map of the Netherlands, where you can see how far you can fly.
From the flight school you have a great view of the runway. Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the airport. This will get you 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 20 minutes, but the longer, the more fun of course!
The Cessna can accommodate 1 student and 2 passengers. During the flight you can not swap seats. If several people want to fly we will make a stopover. In that case book 2 separate flight lessons: choose 2 gift certificates when paying. We can then schedule them one after the other.

Prima vlucht, sympathieke instructeur.
Erg leuke dag en ervaring, prettige mensen.
Vond het echt super leuk
Super! Dat het weer fantastisch was zat uiteraard mee, maar mijn vriendin heeft genoten van het vliegen en ondanks dat ze even gespannen was raakte ze door de instructeur al snel op haar gemak.
Het was heel leuk
