Flight Academy

18 February @ 08:00 - 16:00

From £12

Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park (RVP) has announced additional dates for its Flight Academy programme over the February half-term holidays.

More dates here

Due to popular demand, sessions have now been added for Saturday 18 and Thursday 23 February. A limited number of spaces remain on sessions previously announced for Wednesday 22 and Friday 24 February. The popular programme for children aged 4-12 gives youngsters the chance to learn about the different job roles that help keep Manchester Airport in operation, from check-in agents to flight crew and the airfield team.

During the 90 minute sessions, those taking part will also sit in the cockpit of a retired airliner and get a taste for what it would be like to fly a commercial aircraft. They then head outside to have a look at Manchester Airport’s runways, watch planes taking off and landing and see some of the various jobs that they’ve learnt about in action.

Tickets are only £12 for one adult and one child, and guests can benefit from a full day’s parking at the reduced rate of £5 – giving them the chance to take in the Visitor Park’s other attractions, such as its observation deck with sweeping views across the runway, tours of its retired airliners including the iconic Concorde, and a 360-degree immersive Flight Simulator. The Visitor Park also offers a sizeable play area and on-site café.

Guests can book tours and experiences online via the RVP’s website and are encouraged to visit the What’s On page for guidelines, terms, and conditions before booking.
