Product review: Half an hour in a Cessna by , 13 Sep 16 4/5 Good "Arranging the flight was confusing because the phone contact on the voucher was for the Worcester airfield, whereas I had chosen to fly at Gloucester. The person I spoke to eventually told me phone Gloucester and had the correct number to hand. (getting there) no problem and I didn't spend any time hunting around. Everything was fine and very relaxed. I had expected more of briefing about the controls. The instructor gave a quick introduction in the cockpit and we were off. He explained more while we were airborne. The main instrumentation was fairly clear after a bit, but there is a lot to get your head round if you've never piloted. I think it would not be worth troubling a beginner with too much information. Enjoyable, but with only half an hour you can't expect to do too much - not take-off or landing, obviously. I just about got the hang of steering (left, right, up and down) which took a bit of getting used to because the controls are very sensitive. I was offered but didn't feel the need to. The voucher gave me the wrong contact, which is a rather basic error. "

Initially you will be given an informal, non-technical briefing describing how an aircraft flies and how we control it in the air. You needn't worry if this is new to you as we cover the subject at a very basic level only.

Flying time and Air Traffic Restrictions permitting we may also be able to arrange to overfly your house.

This is a unique experience and you are more than welcome to take cameras into the air.

After the flight there will be a de-briefing, more photographs if you wish and a presentation certificate for the flyer.

We are open 7 days a week giving greater flexibility for you to fly both midweek or at the weekend.
