in Norfolk, there’s no shortage of things to do at Wensum Valley.
East Anglia has a long history of aviation and was home to many important UK and US aviation bases during the World Wars used to defend the country against German Zeppelin raids during World War I and during the epic ‘Battle of Britain’.
Today many of these disused bases and runways, have been converted into aviation schools offering a range of lessons, trips and training courses for groups and individuals. Apart from flying lessons, many aviation schools also offer helicopter training and hot air balloon trips. With its open flat terrain and large areas of uncontrolled airspace, East Anglia provides ideal conditions for those wanting to learn how to fly, improve their skills and achieve a license or just enjoy fantastic views from the air.
There is a large number of aviation schools operating in the area offering a range of lessons, trips and training courses for all abilities and ages. Apart from flying lessons, many aviation schools are also able to offer helicopter training and hot air balloon trips.
So if you are interested in trying flying for the first time, or get first class training to achieve your license, we here at Wensum Valley Hotel are happy to assist you in organising your airborne adventure.
