across the UK with
YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 60 minutes, with approx. 45 minutes spent in the air. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)
When you arrive, you will be met by a member of staff, who will welcome you to the School and introduce you to your flying instructor who will do a pre-flight briefing which will cover the route to be flown, an explanation of the cockpit instruments and a short brief on the effects of the primary flying controls : just to give you an understanding and an introduction to your first handling of the controls of an aeroplane.
Once the instructor has settled you into the pilot's seat and helped you into your harness, he will start, taxy and take-off the aeroplane into the training area. Once in the air, the instructor will demonstrate, and then give you control of the aeroplane and ask you to repeat the manoeuvres under his guidance. You will also have the opportunity of taking in the scenery and to experience the thrill of just flying the aeroplane around the sky. After landing, your instructor will answer any questions and, if you wish, comment on your flying aptitude. You will then be presented with a 'Certificate of Achievement'.

No problems whatsoever arranging the date. The day before the flight we phoned up to check that we could still fly and they had booked out a 2 seater instead of the 4, but they sorted the problem out straight away. Getting to the venue was very easy and the facilities were fine. Staff were excellent. The briefing covered all aspects of the flight. The experience itself was outstanding. I booked it for my husbands birthday and as I was not brave enough to join him, his friend went instead and they both had a fantastic time. Would fully recommend it. Instructor was lovely. They were very accommodating for photos and we could have stayed there all day if we had wanted.
Overall rating: Excellent
Arranging the experience was very good. Had to rearrange twice due to bad weather and personal difficulties - not a problem for the staff at the facility - very flexible approach.It was very easy to get to the venue. The facilities were excellent. Toilets, refreshments, good waiting area, lounge with magazines etc. Warm and friendly. I got a very favourable impression of the staff and equipment. I was not rushed in and out - made to feel welcome by all staff and the instructor. Equipment good. The briefing was pitched just at the right level for a beginner. All queries were answered in full. Experience itself was very good. Would be happy to fly again in the future. Pleased to recommend it to others.I did not think about taking photographs - will remember to take my camera next time!
