The Basic flying lesson in the sport plane is one of the most purchased experiences. And for a reason! It's the most fun way to be introduced to flying.
The 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 we have air traffic control keeping 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.
You will fly in a state-of-the-art aircraft with the latest equipment on board. At the same time, this is a lightweight and compact aircraft. This makes it enormously maneuverable and it steers very directly. The smallest steering movements have an immediate effect. The ideal combination for a sporty aircraft!
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! In consultation with the instructor you decide where you will fly to. Maybe you can fly over your hometown. Below is a map of the Netherlands showing how far you can fly.
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. If you want to bring someone along to watch you go up in the air, he or she can of course also attend the introduction. Then you both know what you will experience in the air. You do not have to pay extra for this.
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 flight was a very good experience in which I had to chance to have the feeling of the controls of a real aircraft. In 1h and 30m I could do lots of turns and practice climbs and descents at altitude. The instructor also showed me how to do stalls and recovery. I was surprised on how easy it is to do turns as well as climbs and descents. I also got surprised about how sensitive the yoke of the Aero AT-3 is.
We covered a quite great area around Lelystad airport. It was quite impressive to see from above some roads and infrastructures in The Netherlands.

Super leuk. Echt genoten van de 1e vliegles. Veel geleerd en zelf gedaan. Naar het opstijgen gelijk aan de stuurknuppel. Eerst even wennen, daarna ook al bochten maken en dalen en stijgen.
