Arranging the date was easy - this was the only school I could find that operated weekdays and at weekends Getting to venue and its facilities was very straightforward, just a couple of minutes from the A50. The facilities were good with clean toilets! Tea and coffee on tap and a nice area for the family to have a picnic. Staff and equipment were first class. Staff and kit were well presented. Judy, the pilot was simply amazing! I found the pre-flight briefing comprehensive and confidence inspiring. The experience itself was what it says on the voucher - utterly amazing. I never thought I would fly like an eagle! Everyone took photos, it was a great day out for all the family!
Overall rating: Excellent
Arranging the date was at first was a little restrictive in that we understood it to be only weekend flying, but after having difficulty trying to re-arrange a flight after cancelling, the centre were very obliging in arranging a mid-week flight as we were in the area at the time otherwise it was a 300 mile round trip.
We had no difficulty finding the venue, all facilities were first class. We found the centre staff very professional and friendly and relaxed. The equipment felt comfortable and secure.
A thorough briefing and pre-flight check was carried out, after which I felt very confident, all my questions were addressed satisfactorily.
The experience itself was absolutely exhilarating, and would like to do it again. I would recommend the experience to anybody.
After the event, Julie the pilot was very obliging in advising where to stand to get the best pictures and was quite happy to pose for photos. There was no rush to get rid of us after the flight the whole experience was very relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable, the atmosphere was one of the centre enjoying having you there to enjoy their hobby.
