Everybody should try flying a plan at least once in their life! SkyWest’s Introductory Flying Lesson at Newcastle Airfield, Co. Wicklow is the perfect way to experience the unique and exhilarating thrill of flying an aircraft.
Following a 15-20 minute pre-flight briefing from our experienced flight instructor, you will board one of our purpose-built training aircraft. The flight instructor will take care of the take-off and once airborne you will be given the opportunity to take the controls yourself and with guidance from the instructor carry out some basic manoeuvres.

Following your return to the airport and landing you will be presented with a Certificate of Achievement as a memento of you introductory flight.
