Excellent very easy just a phone all with document voucher number and arranged date ans time..good parking and a cafe for visitor spectators to watch. Staff were very proffessional, equipment very good. Briefing excellent felt very confident pilot Barry let me take off with his guidance and take controls whilst airborne. Good view over Reading.It was very thrilling and would love to fly again, we will be buying a BIrthday experience for my grandad who is 80 this October. Yes Barry the pilot pulled out and passed by my family for photos and also had plenty of photos standing by the plane before we took off a brilliant day to remember.

First flight

(Reviewed by Chris Good 09/11/2014)

No problems [making the arragements]at all. From Reading it was only 20 mins. Everyone on the day were friendly and helpful. Everything I asked was answered in full. I was instructed and shown in a very professional way, very calm and precise. The experience was 'fantastic' to fly a plane and be fully in control was 'mind blowing' to the point I am now going to take further lessons with a view to getting my PPL. We had all the time we wanted, we had tea and watched the incomming and outgoing planes. Booking was easy and clear many thanks

Birthday flight

(Reviewed by Val 20/04/2016)

The lady at the airport was very helpful. The facilities were excellent, with a fantastic cafe.[staff] Very friendly, helpful and professional.[briefing] Everything pre-flight seemed very thorough. We went through all the basic controls and what they did and it all felt very organised The experience was very enjoyable. I got to take control of the plane several times. It would certainly recommend it to a friend and would consider taking up flying in the future. There was plenty of time to take pictures after the event. There was no rush. We even had lunch at the nice little cafe next door. Website and helpline were great.

nice gift pack

(Reviewed by Kerry 06/09/2015)

The voucher was presented in a nice gift pack and was easy to book. Easy to find location, good clean facilities. A nice cafe and great viewing points for waiting people. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Would have been nice idea for a polaroid picture to go on the certificate. The briefing was very informative and I felt very safe. Loved the experience really want to do it again. Young lady I spoke to was great when purchasing the voucher, have recommended you to everyone.

Blackbushe 30min Flight

(Reviewed by Ian P 26/07/2014)

Booking the flight was not a problem, thankfully they reminded me a month before it was due to expire. The venue was easy to find, just off the M3, with a cafe next door, you couldn't ask for more. The staff were welcoming, efficent and knowledgeable. It was a brief briefing, which was good as it meant more time in the air, but we covered everything we needed to know. The flight itself was great. Good fun, learnt a lot and saw a lot. Unfortunately I didn't have time to hang around, but I'm sure I would have been welcome to do so.
