Product review: Pitts by , 15 Nov 15 5/5 Excellent "Directions to the venue were clear and it was easy to find the right place to go. General facilities (toilets, catering etc ) not that good. General impression of staff and equipment was excellent. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I did not feel that I was being rushed. All of the equipment seemed up to scratch. The briefing was excellent. I felt very confident about what I was about to do and the instructor was able to answer all my questions. The experience itself was excellent. I would recommend to a friend and I would certainly do it again. There was plenty of time to take photographs and stay around after the event. "

Aerobatic trial lesson
Aerobatic Introductory Lesson 30 Minutes
Aerobatic Flying Lesson with a qualified instructor providing hands-on experience at the controls of a 2 seat, closed cockpit, Cessna A152 Aerobat aircraft.

This experience will last a total of approx. 50 minutes, with approx. 30 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.)



What's included

You will have the chance to experience the thrill of aerobatics and to fly some of the basic manoeuvres such as loops, barrel rolls and stall turns yourself.
After an initial brief by your instructor he/she will proceed to get the aircraft airborne into the local area demonstrating the basic controls. Once the aircraft is levelled off you will then be offered the opportunity to actually fly the aircraft yourself under the guidance of your instructor. You can expect this to be for approximately 80% of the flying time. The most important thing is that you relax and enjoy your experience.

Pitts Bi-plane

(Reviewed 04/02/2015)

Arranging the flight was ok, the operator was accessible, though obviously the flight was weather dependant and subject to pilot availability (this was not a problem). It was easy to find the venue from Peterborough and the A1. The (indoor) facilities there were good. The staff were very friendly and polite. The briefing with the instructor was good and everything was made clear to me before the flight. The experience itself was excellent! I would definitely recommend it to those with a strong stomach, as flying upside down has an effect on the system! There was plenty of opportunity to take photographs and stay around the airfield after the flight.

Overall rating: Excellent

Something I will not forget quickly

(Reviewed by Heather Francis 11/11/2015)

There was no problem booking the date. The telephone was answered promptly. I had to re-arrange the day due to bad weather, but there was no problem doing so. It was easy to get to the venue. Every aspect of the company and the airfield were excellent. All facilities - catering, toilets, etc - were first class and welcoming. The staff were very friendly and polite - a very nice group of people. The equipment was first class. The Briefing. I was talked through everything correctly and clearly. During all manoeuvres I was told what we would be doing. Safety was paramount. I felt very confident. This was one of the most exhilarating experiences I have ever done. I would recommend it to all people and I would do it all again and for longer. My husband took photos. Due to the weather changing we did not linger at the airfield but we could have done if we had wanted. Fantastic Day Out!!

Ultimate Flying Experience

(Reviewed by Yes 24/10/2014)

Easy to arrange, although they were quite busy, the main issue is the weather is obviously a major factor. It's easy to get to the venue! The facilites were fine, although you really don't go there for the tea and coffee. Staff were very friendly and accomodating, the pilot was thoroughly nice chap who spent time chatting to us and explaining things. Briefing was as it should be, informative and short! My girlfriend was over the moon, she said it felt like you were up in the plane for ages, doing barrell rolls, loop-the-loops etc. We had an opertunity to take pictures both of the plane and with the pilot, very nice bunch.
