Night Flying Taster

Friday 24th January 2014

Thursday 30th January 2014

Tayside Aviation, Dundee Airport

We’ve arranged two sessions at Dundee with the opportunity to experience a short taster (20 minute flight) what it’s like to fly at night. Flying in the dark is quite a different experience to flying in daylight but if you’ve ever flown a commercial flight at night and looked down at lights of the towns and cities below you’ll have some idea of what it’s like. Nevertheless, to actually be at the controls of an aircraft at night is quite something else so this should prove an opportunity not to be missed .....

Due to a very strong response to these events, we've now had to close the list. Hopefully, we'll be able to arrange some further sessions and will advise potential plans in due course.

The first session is on Friday 24th January with the second the following week on Thursday 30th January. The plan is to meet at Dundee at 7.00pm and thanks to the support of Tayside Aviation the flights will be free of charge to FFC Club Members. During the 20 minute flight, you’ll get the chance to fly a Warrior with an instructor in the right hand seat ..... effectively, it will be a short night flying lesson.

Would you be interested in doing your night rating? It only needs 5 hours tuition so it’s not a difficult thing to do and the guys at Tayside will be only too happy to talk to you about arranging lessons.

So, if you’re planning on coming, we need to know which evening you’d prefer. Can you please e-mail me ( This email address is being protected from spambots.
