Let’s be honest, everyone at some point in time has thought about flying a plane. Now it has finally become a possibility! If you would instead prefer a tour around Scotland, you can do that as well! Glasgow Flying Club is a non-profit organisation so, all the money they make goes back into the company, so you can rest assured that no private company will get money. Not only that, it is the only CAA Registered Flying Club and is operating entirely out of Glasgow International Airport. So, if you’re interested in a flying lesson, this is definitely the place for you.
