"Arranging the date for the experience was fine and the first date available fitted in with my schedule.The directions were clear, signposting to the airfield was a little unclear (past a go kart centre and a scrap merchants) but the airfield facilities were good. The party of friends with me were well looked after, the equipment was good but I did not get the 70 minute experience or 30 minutes in the air as promised. The Briefing was excellent, safety clearly briefed and a photo opportunity for me and my party. My party was taken onto the roof of the air traffic centre to take pictures when I took off. I was disappointed. The experience was great but too short. We paid for 30 minutes in the air and a 70 minutes total experience. What I got was about 20 minutes in the air and an experience over in about 45 minutes. It was trilling but when the pilot said shall we go back to the airfield now I thought he meant to do more flying not to land!
