Introductory Flights

I want to purchase an Introductory Flight for someone.

I have a gift voucher, where can we go?

During a 30 minute flight you could fly south over Strangford lough to Portaferry before turning north over the Ards Peninsula and back to Newtownards.
During a 45 minute flight you could fly south over Strangford lough to Portaferry and then on to Downpatrick before turning north to return to Newtownards via Comber.
During a 60 minute flight you could fly over Strangford Lough and as far south as Newcastle to view the stunning Mourne Mountains from the air before turning north to fly over the Ards Peninsula and return to Newtownards.
During a 90 minute flight you could fly over Belfast City Airport before following the Antrim coast to Ballycastle, past Rathlin Island, the Giant’s Causeway and Portrush before returning to Newtownards via Bushmills & the Glens of Antrim.

I have a voucher, now what happens?

You will need to have your voucher in front of you. There will be a voucher number that you will need to quote.

Phone the UFC on 028 9181 3327 or call in and see us, either way our admin team are here to help you arrange a time and day that suits you.

There are plenty of parking spaces available so park up and go straight ahead into the Main Office with your gift voucher in hand.

Present your voucher to one of the office staff and you are nearly there!!

You will then be shown to the Lounge to await your instructor for the flight.

Once the introductions between you and the instructor are over, each person going flying will be given a headset to wear during the flight; this allows the instructor to talk to Air Traffic control and passengers to talk to each other during the flight.

Make sure you have everything you want to take with you e.g. camera, sunglasses etc.

Now it is time to go to the airplane – Happy Flying!!
