Very easy and efficient, friendly staff. Directions very clear and a cafe next door for refreshments. Staff were very knowledgeable and professional. Mike was very professional and briefing was great and very easily to understand. It was a present for my boyfriend which he did say he enjoyed and wanted longer in the air as it was fun. we were allowed to take photos etc. All was great.
Overall rating: Excellent
Making booking was ok, understandably busy schedule for the airport. Some more detailed info would have been appreciated regarding taxi or public transport options, of getting to venue. Staff very good. The flight was very good as well. Pictures were allowed before the flight with some time pressure.
Overall rating: Good
...had no trouble finding. ...Small playing area next to the planes to keep the kids happy was well appreciated....purchased for a son's birthday present, but he lost the courage to get his feet off the floor, so his Mum took his place. No problem with changing the particiant. She felt perfectly safe at all times.......so she said!Had to suffer her talking excitedky about it for the hour and a half drive home though.Photos allowed before and after the flight, the Grandkids appreciating getting close up to the machine. Eldest two allowed to pose in the drivers seat with Nanny made their day.
Overall rating: Excellent
