Christmas is fast approaching, and if you’ve not yet started your Christmas shopping, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll buy for your nearest and dearest this year. With just over a month to go, here are some great reasons for choosing one of our fantastic flying lesson gift vouchers to give as the perfect Christmas present this year…
1. The perfect gift for the person who has everything
It can be so difficult to choose a Christmas present for someone who already has everything they could possibly want in life. An experience day voucher gives them something priceless – memories. Not to mention some pretty cool photo opportunities of themselves at controls of a flying machine.
2. Make them feel amazing
The glamour of being a pilot has endless appeal, so why not treat a loved one to that fabulous feeling of being at the controls of an aeroplane and make them feel awesome… just like Tom Cruise in Top Gun. Almost.
3. You get to go and watch!
The voucher may be for them, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go along with them, take some photographs, watch some planes take off and soak up the aviation atmosphere. It makes a great day out for both of you – or indeed all the family – so not only do they get the perfect Christmas present, but you also get to enjoy an outing too!
4. Another one for the bucket list
Lots of us have bucket lists these days – i.e. a list of things we want to do before we ‘kick the bucket’, even if it’s not actually written down. Flying an aeroplane is on many people’s bucket list, so treating someone to the chance to take the controls is sure to go down well.
5. It’s affordable
Flying doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Our aviation experience days start at just £49 – a lot cheaper than the bigger experience day companies. Even if you’re on a budget, you’re bound to find a flight that will make an affordable gift for someone you love.
6. They might get to fly over your house
If they fly from a local airfield, they might be able to fly over your house – so you might even get a great aerial photograph of your house thrown in! We have dozens of locations to choose from across the country, with more being added all the time.
7. Loads of aircraft types to choose from
We have a great choice of aircraft types for you to choose from, including aeroplanes, helicopters, gliders, motorgliders, microlights and vintage aircraft such as original 1930s Tiger Moth bi-planes. If you have a thrill-seeker in the family, you can even give them the chance to try their hand at aerobatics!
8. Their lesson will count towards formal training
If they love their flying lesson so much that they can’t wait to get airborne again, their initial lesson will count towards the hours they need to gain a Private Pilot’s Licence.
9. A sparkly gold envelope for under the tree
All our vouchers come beautifully presented in a gorgeous gold envelope that will look fabulous under the Christmas tree, and it’s left blank and unsealed for your own message. Each envelope contains a voucher that you can personalise by leaving a comment during the checkout process, along with details of how to book the flying lesson.
10. It’s so easy to order
Forget battling the Christmas crowds and queuing up in all the shops. Why not do your Christmas shopping from the comfort of your home using our quick and easy ordering process. Simply add the flying lesson you like to your shopping cart, fill in your details (add a personalised message in the ‘Comments’ box) and then complete your order by making a simple and secure payment through PayPal.
