Can you help me find a flight?
The most common flights on Wingly are sightseeing flights over the local area and day-trips to locations across the UK, or slightly further afield, for example, the north coast of France. As flights are in light aircraft, trips to destinations further afield would be very long and therefore expensive. Weekend trips are also less common due to the fact that flights are weather dependent, meaning that the return flight would be very reliant on the weather forecast being correct.
If you had a specific flight in mind which you cannot find online, you could always try messaging pilots who fly from local airfields with similar flights online to see whether they would be interested in doing this flight with you. To speak directly with a pilot, on a flight page simply scroll down to the 'Contact pilot' button which will take you to the Wingly messenger where you can discuss possibilities with the pilot.
