Had no difficulties arranging and subsequently re-arranging my date. Easy to find, well signposted from A1, all facilities were clean and available. Staff are all pleasant, instructor/pilot was helpful, calm, friendly and accommodating. To a novice, the equipment seemed up to scratch. The briefing was good, I felt in safe hands and the instructor/pilot answered all my questions well. I enjoyed the trip especially as I passed over and identified several areas I know well. The trip was made better by the ability to accommodate my 9 year old son on the flight at short notice! He loved it! I doubt that I would put myself out to do it again but if you are offering!! I would recommend it or buy it as a gift for someone else though. There was plenty of time before and after the event for photographs and time to linger if you feel inclined.
Overall rating: Good
