I had really enjoyed the flight experience. It was my first time ever flying and the instructor was really helpful as well and everybody in the facility. Instructor gave me brief explanation and made me comfortable with the plane. Taking control of the plane and flying around was an incredible experience. Definitely would recommend flying with Almat Flying Academy.read more
Took a 30min introductory flight lesson with Neil, a seasoned Pilot and flight instructor, the lesson went by in a flash but was filled with tons of info and skills, along with a Great instructor. The C152 used was perfect for beginners, allowing for some leeway and simplicity to the flight, quite like the larger C172. Definitely would recommend and I may even be returning for a PPL!read more

My son decided at the age of 13 that he wanted to be a pilot, he flew locally to us from the age of 13 to 15 landing and taking off on grass at a very small local airfield. Liam then needed to gain more experience and needed expert guidance. At 16 he was flying solo, we did originally try another school in Coventry prior to Almat Flying Academy but that was a total disaster. Coventry is not local for us but they have kept Liam in the air and nurtured him right to the end where he now leaves them only to finish his commercial pilots licence.We could not recommend this flying school enough and as a parent you can trust these not to keep milking your bank account unlike other flying schools.read more

I did the "day in the life of a pilot". It was such an amazing experience. My pilot Ali was really friendly and welcoming and made me feel really comfortable. He showed me how we create a flight route and the file a flight plan. Each step of the whole experience I was involved making me really feel as though I was a pilot! Everyone at the academy was so friendly and helped to make the day feel really special. The academy building and fercilities were well maintained and clean along with the aircraft so you know you are in good and safe hands. Thank you so much to everyone at Almat and my pilot Ali for making the day so memorable for me! Hannah Rhodesread more

Had booked a flying trial lesson for 45minutes. Showed up there expecting they'd just give me controls for a few minutes and that's it but man, what an experience. I was allowed to fly the aircraft for most part after we crossed the BHX airspace limits. James flew with me and what a kind and sweet guy, patient enough to explain all the details and answer all the questions. Even the reception service was one of the most friendly receptions I've ever had - kind and answer to the point. I might or might not take up a PPL but I'll never forget the experience that I had here being an Avgeek. Would definitely recommend everyone to give it a go, forget the price - the experience is worth everything you're paying for. I did have an issue with the video recording where the audio did not get recorded properly, but not that unhappy about it. If you have a GoPro, you can carry it, they have a holder on the aircraft where you can fix it(atleast the 152 I flew had it).read more

Absolutely first class trial lesson with Mark in the Cessna 172. Felt really safe after 30 minute briefing and a thorough run through of instruments etc. went through all the check list, taxied to runway hold, checklist. Took over controls after Mark took off, climbed to 3,000 feet, banked, left, right, descent, ascent and even some time 'free flight' as long as advised transitions I was about to fly. Joined the pattern left base, on to final and landed the aircraft, holding the flare advised by Markl.A truly memorable, brilliant experience and made so by the superb team at Almat. Highly, highly recommendedread more

I was one of those who got their flying lesson voucher on their birthday. I was pretty excited and arranged a lesson with Almat. All I was supposed to get was some basic navigating bordering on boring. This has all changed when I've met my flying instructor. Now within the 30 minutes of our time he has turned me into a MAN! Who can boast that they've done a barrel roll, inside loop, inverted flying up to 4Gs on their first lesson?! My expectation of an ordinary experience has turned into the most amazing! And he has even made a video of it for me and gave a voucher for a pint in a nearby pub! Thank you, Almat Aviation!read more

After beginning to get nervous on commercial planes I decided to have a flying lesson at Almat. My instructor Ali was brilliant at explaining the whole process, the pre-flight checks, what is going on in the air, and what pilots are looking out for, and of course how I was going to fly! He applied this information to commercial flying too and has very much set my mind at ease.The flight itself was incredible! I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. We saw plenty of the local landmarks, and I had control for most of the flight. Ali has a great sense of humour too!This is absolutely something I will do again, and I urge everybody to give this a go!read more

Really enjoyed a 30-minute aerobatic experience through Almat Flying Academy. Simon and Ben were super-organised on the booking and pre-flight briefing processes. Steve was a superbly capable pilot and made sure I felt ok after every one of the amazing aerobatic manoeuvres before moving on to the next. My favourite? The stall turn - the anticipation at the top and then the plummet straight down towards the ground - awesome! Thank you guys!read more

I then was in control until moments before landing. A great experience professionally deliveredread more

16/10/2019Had a fantastic flying experience with my son for his 18th birthday. We each had 30 mins in the co-pilot seat and 30 mins as a passenger in the 4 seater Cessna 172. Carmen was a brilliant pilot, guide and instructor. She let us at the controls for almost every manoeuvre (except take-off and landing) and was funny and engaging as well as informative. We flew over Rugby, Leamington, Warwick, Gaydon and everywhere in between. Such a brilliant time. Thank you Almat Flying Academy!read more

Wow! What a brilliant experience! I was bought the extended flying lesson as a gift from my family and it certainly didn't disappoint.Started with a briefing in the classroom by Simon and although I didn't really know anything about the technicalities of flying this short briefing really helped to prime me for what was to come.Once out on the tarmac I was handed over to my instructor, Steve and we were soon underway. Nothing really beats that take off moment which was my first in a light aircraft. Weather was overcast with cloud layer at around 3000ft which we were soon above, making for another great dimension to the experience. Steve was great at explaining everything as he was going along (even if I didn't really understand some of it!) and I very quickly felt at ease. I was surprised/delighted at how immersive and hands on the experience was and it went so quickly!Once back on the ground I found myself discussing course options (which i hadn't planned to!) and finding more out about the academy, which Simon talked me through.All in all an experience I hope I don't ever forget! Thanks guys, might be seeing you again!read more

Pre flight tuition not to serious but you get the gist .lovely people running the experience. Captain Phil who apparently has no sense of direction can't fly and falls asleep at the helm. He was Brill.... started by dragging the plane out thought I had to push it to bump start it ! Taxing along the yellow line then to the runway ! Yes ! 65 knots pull back and up we went, climbed to 2000ft level off left steep turn right steep,turn,over the bumpy bridge !lifted out of seat. Circled Warwick castle,went round the chimney, it is a wonderful experience.Thank you to all the team, hope I will be backread more
