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!

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).

It was an amazing experience, it was a bit stressful for me driving down to Wolverhampton from Birmingham to experience this. But I had a great time. Thanks to Andrew my pilot too for taking pictures and making the experience fun.
