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 London 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!

-Passengers who weigh more than 95kg, please enquire before booking
-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.
-No private flights are allowed to fly over London, so you will fly over the surrounding area with a far but clear view of the city.
-This is not a helicopter 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

A beautiful experience, especially if you have a passion for the sky. As a pilot myself, the view of London is spectacular! Thank you, Emeric and Mathew... for the wonderful experience, this wouldn’t of been possible without you both.

Hi Guys this was an amazing experience to fly over London , unfortunately their was bit of cloud cover and we could not do the whole trip , but the take off and landing and the whole excitement around the trip was so amazing so the fact that the trip was cut short did not really effect the over all experience and was amazed to get a partial refund which was great Highly recommend

We had such a fantastic flight with Matthew. Despite the wind, we felt really safe in Matthew's experience as a pilot. We saw some incredible views and it definitely was a once in a lifetime experience! I would highly recommend flying with Matthew again, perhaps on a less windy day! Thanks again!

This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and a totally unique way to see in London! Emeric arranged for the pilot to pick us up from the train station just outside London which was super convenient. The little café at the airport was lovely and the ride itself was just incredible. This is an amazing value for this type of experience. I’d have to imagine it could cost three times as much anywhere else. I would highly recommend!
