We prefer all inexperienced pilots to attend one of the regular tandem group meetings. These training sessions offer the opportunity to practise all the basic manoeuvres such as how to start and stop, and how to handle the tandem. You will also have the opportunity to learn how to best guide a blind or partially sighted person and assist them. Please get in touch for further details.


There is no charge to take part in this event.
