What to give an aircraft nut (me) for a birthday present? A flight in an Ikarus C42 from Upham, my local airfield in Hampshire.The voucher arrived by email minutes after paying, and I phoned the operator to book the same day, a Friday. What a fine bunch of chaps...across the Solent to the Needles, over Newport IoW and then back to Upham for a cup of very good coffee. I highly recommend the entire process from booking, flying the aircraft to the cup of coffee. The only danger is that once you have flown an Ikarus, you'll be hooked. I'm still grinning.
Overall rating: Excellent
When we called the airfield the staff where incredibly friendly and happy to help us in anyway for finding a convineint date. The venue was very easy to find with the sat nav, the airfield was well signposted. The staff where incredibly friendly they helped us with any queries we had/problems. The equipment they had was great, all increadably safe and up to date! The briefing was short and sweet, the instructor went through all the basics of understanding how to fly a plane. He even brought a little wooden model with the moving parts of theplane to demonstrate how to use the controls. My experience was unbelievable I never thought I would have that much fun! Was extremely thrilling because I was allowed to fly 99% of the time. My instructor was very friendly and helped me fly the plane during the whole flight! After the flight the instructer went over the flight and told me how to improve my flying. I had time to take pictures and answers any questions I had.
