What you'll do

UP, UP and AWAY! This is your chance to experience the fun of flying PRIVATELY.
Yes, that’s right. No delays, no shuffling from queue to queue, or huge airports.
This is the real deal - flying in a small aircraft with a local pilot, who just wants to share the magic of flight.

Your pilot is key to this adventure. They are sharing the flights' direct cost, not making a profit. They just love to fly and want you to understand their passion for aviation.
So be sure to meet your pilot directly at the airfield provided, as there's no airport inside of Birmingham but there are several private airfields around, normally reachable by public transportation in 30-90 min.

++Confirm weather conditions with your pilot before++ --> Access a local and non-commercial airfield --> Discuss the flight route together with your pilot --> Pre-flight check --> Up you go, in the air!
Enjoy the view from a whole new perspective!

NOTICE:
-The flight can depart between 9-17h, depending on the availability of the pilot and the aircraft.You can book a time frame and let us know your flexible hours/days after the reservation.
-Passengers who weigh more than 95kg, please enquire before booking
-This is not a helicopter flight
-Minimum 2 passengers per booking is mandatory
Other things to note
This is a non-commercial flight operated under EASA cost-sharing rules and each flight is insured by Allianz through Wingly. Flights are performed with the utmost safety in mind including pre-flight checks, but please note that the flights don’t have the same safety rules as a commercial flight.

I'm a co-founder of Wingly, the flight sharing platform which connects private pilots with passengers. I've been passionate about aviation since a very young age and started taking flying lessons at 12 years old to get my first pilot's licence at 15. I've now been flying for fun for over 15 years and started Wingly to make this extraordinary activity possible for more people. On Wingly, we have a large community of dedicated pilots and we connect you with them so you can share the cost and the experience of a private flight. Your flight will either be with me or one of our other amazing pilots (Ashley, Roman, Keith, Dan, Nick, Ioan-Florin, Adam, Bruce, James, John, Chris, Thomas, Andrew, or Ameer).

Where you'll be

Details of the route can be discussed with the pilot.
You'll first meet the pilot directly at the airport provided.
As there are multiple airports around Birmingham, I'm not pinning one specific airport to avoid confusion.
You could see: Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Chatsworth House...etc.
