Night Flying

£85  (1 passenger, 2 seat aircraft)
£135  (up to 3 passengers, 4 seat aircraft)

An experience flight of approximately 20 minutes to fly around the city of Leicester at night before seeing the privileged view of the runway lights from the cockpit.

Choose 2 or 4 seat aircraft:

Follow the taxiway lights out to our main runway before taking off and leaving the airfield heading West to fly around Leicester City in all its night-time glory. If a game is on, catch a view of the floodlit King Power or Welford Road stadiums. Returning to the circuit, see the fantastic, privileged view of the runway lights you don’t see on commercial flights, as your instructor explains the APAPI lights (Precision Approach Path Indicator) which guide pilots in their descent to touch down on the runway with no visible land references.
